This year, Ho Chi Minh City was voted as the venue four General Assembly Meeting and, certainly,
it is a great choice.
Formerly known as Saigon, this is the second most important city in Vietnam after Hanoi. Many
rivers, the biggest one being the Saigon River, streams and canals, bath the city. The Port of
Saigon, established in 1862, is accessible to ships weighing up to 30,000 tons, a rare advantage for
an inland river port.
The city, the largest city in the country in terms of population, is a bustling, dynamic and
industrious center, the economic capital and the cultural trendsetter. Yet, within the teeming
metropolis are the timeless traditions and beauty of an ancient culture.


The Caravelle Saigon Hotel is located in the city centre district 1, only a short walk to iconic
landmarks and locations, such as the Saigon Municipal Theatre - also known as the Opera House -
Notre Dame Cathedral, historic Dong Khoi Street, modern Nguyen Hue Walking Street, and the
legendary Ben Thanh Market.
Opened on the Christmas eve of 1959, the hotel has been at the centre of significant historic and
cultural events as well, even being the home for the Australian Embassy, the New Zealand Embassy,
and the Saigon bureaus of NBC, ABC and CBS, to name but a few.
The original classy ten-storey building with strikingly curved, balconied corners is now adjoined to a
smart 24-storey tower that forms the bulk of the new property.
Rated with 5 stars, this high-quality property provides guests with comfortable luxury rooms,
extraordinary culinary experiences and a variety of facilities – pool, gym, spa- and services –
conferences, limousine, concierge, massage, luggage storage.

The Caravelle is the ideal venue for our GAM, with a meeting package that includes well-equipped
meeting rooms, a refreshing selection of coffee, tea, juice, and detox water during the meeting, themed
coffee break selections, and high-speed wireless internet connection throughout our event.
And, after your meetings, fitness and wellness enthusiasts can enjoy the private Kara Spa, the 24-hour
fitness centre plus outdoor swimming pool and bar.
