Access by Vehicles to the New World Hotel Saigon – Members Night, May 24

Traffic authorities have recently erected a fence in the middle of the Pham Hong Thai Street that blocks vehicles from making a left-turn into the New World Hotel Saigon front entryway. To avoid congestion, delay, and possible accidents, we recommend that vehicles coming from Le Loi Boulevard and the Ben Thanh market go past the New World Hotel on Le Lai Street (with the hotel on the right), take a right turn on Nguyen Thi Nghia Street at the back of the property, then take another right turn onto Pham Hong Thai Street, and then a right turn into the entryway to the New World Hotel.

Please see the google map below for your reference. We are looking forward to seeing you tonight.
