Trails of Indochina is offering Vietnam-bound MICE groups a conference venue with a difference for their next Ho Chi Minh City visit – the
residence of the former US Ambassador to South Vietnam during the Vietnam War.
Completely restored to its original 1960’s glory when it was the home of Ambassador Henry Cabot
Lodge, the residence located in Ho Chi Minh City’s District Three is
best described as a ‘living museum’.
A member of one of America’s most famous families, Henry Cabot Lodge served two terms as Ambassador to South Vietnam in the 1960’s.
In 1969, he was appointed by President Richard Nixon to serve as head of the American team at the Paris peace
The building features much of the original artwork, photographs and furniture in place during Lodge’s residence, much of which remained in the
building following its purchase by Trails of Indochina.
The building’s dining room and extensive balcony can accommodate up to 65 guests at a time with all catering provided by the Park Hyatt
When not hosting convention groups or staging elegant soirees, Trails of Indochina has used the building for several other purposes.
These include especially requested Vietnamese culinary classes and Tai Chi instruction catering for groups of up to 20 people.
