What we say: 3.5 stars

With its giant, and iconic, blazing buffalo sign, it is hard to miss the Crazy Buffalo, a landmark of Saigon's backpacker area.

Posing as a simple Western-style bar and restaurant by day, at night it really comes alive, where the dance party on the third floor can last all night.

While the food isn't anything special and the drinks aren't the cheapest in the area, what makes Crazy Buffalo special is that it is open for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Buffalo consists of three storeys; the first two are your normal backpacker bar serving tourists drinks all day, the third is more of a nightclub playing hip hop music.
