'Chilling' in the Sky Bar in Saigon

It's been a busy public speaking tour of the Far East.
But I have found some time to relax!
Here I am enjoying a 'pit stop' in Saigon's Chill Sky Bar at the top of the AB Tower.
It is recognised as one of the most famous bars and best views over the city.
Pitched on the top floor of the AB Tower, it sits on a busy corner between the backpacker area of Phạm Ngũ Lão and the tourist mecca of Bến Thành Market.
There is a dress code: no shorts and no ‘flip-flops’.
The AB Tower looks back towards the big hotels and office blocks of Saigon’s financial district.
It gives a great view of all the big construction projects that have changed the city skyline over the last 10-plus years.
The bar itself is described in all the good guides to Saigon as 'a colour-changing ellipse set on a platform right next to the edge, so that it appears to hover over the city'.
It's definitely got the Wow factor!
