Enjoy a famous Vietnamese Hot Pot dinner - an interesting way to dine together and share stories about the day. Anything can become a hot topic during a hot pot dinner and no dinner would be complete without enjoying some locally brewed Vietnamese beer.

After dinner, you can relax with a cup of coffee and enjoy live music in the cosy atmosphere in one of the local coffee shops.
