Chatrium Riverside is a lovely 5-star hotel. Essentially, you're in a suite with a mini kitchen, couch, table, and separate bedroom. More space than I needed, for sure. A lovely view of the river, and a pretty fantastic pool.

We ate at the restaurant on the top floor of the hotel--a Chinese selection and we ended up with some soup and dim sum. Solid breakfast buffet as well. Most of the rest of the time was spent eating hotel food during work, but we did make it out two evenings.
Asiatique: We walked there--an upscale tourist set of shops and some restaurants. We ended up at a local place with some decent Pad Thai.

Travel day to Vietnam was an early one. We were out the door by 4:45 to catch a 7:30 flight--knowing that airport, it was the right thing to do. I ended up trying a new travel outlet--a t-shirt maxi. Super comfortable and great for warmer temps. Found a great opportunity to photobomb in the airport. Classic.

Although it was a short flight to Vietnam, we still got a small meal. That's the crazy thing about flying non-US airlines, you tend to get a bit more for your buck. I barely had a chance to finish a cup of coffee and we were already on the descent.
