Vietnam’s leading hotels are busy with preparing special programs to celebrate a bright Christmas 2010.
In Ho Chi Minh City, the Caravelle Hotel is planning the grandest festive celebrations in its storied 51-year-history. The hotel has given a renowned local interior decorations company carte blanche to transform the property into a glittering winter wonderland. Utilizing the biggest budget ever made available for festive decoration at the hotel, the firm is set to produce a lavish display of violet and silver lights and Christmas balls.
On the south-central coast, Sheraton Nha Trang is dishing up all the trimmings in its first Christmas as the resort town’s only internationally renown five-star property. In addition to its 6-metre high tree, there will be a gingerbread house to entertain youngsters.
The acclaimed Nam Hai is trucking in a pair of 2-metre high evergreens down from nearby Hai Van Pass to decorate and welcome the Christmas 2010.
The halls of Hanoi Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel, the legendary hotel – a landmark in Vietnam’s capital since 1901 – will be strewn with ornaments and decorations while approximately 5,000 lights will be strung along the façade and the interior gardens. In addition, on December 1st, the country’s biggest Christmas tree, a 15-meter pine imported from Hong Kong, will be displayed in the Metropole courtyard.
