Plans 50th Anniversary Celebration in May
after opening as the plus ultra of upscale accommodation in Vietnam, the
Caravelle Hotel has set the stage for an anniversary celebration in May.
On May 8, the
Caravelle will recognize its 50 years on Saigon�s Lam Son Square with an
anniversary cocktail celebration in the hotel ballroom. Renowned wartime
journalist and Pulitzer-prize winner Peter Arnett will keynote the
anniversary celebration, accompanied by Robert Wiener, another wartime

the 1960s and 1970s, the hotel�s flagship restaurant was the Champs-�lys�es.
