The Sound of Silence Tea Rooms
Perch yourself beachside at this tropical paradise
Yes, we know - it’s Vietnam, a cacophony of noise and a riot of colour, but hidden in a small An Bang laneway, adjacent to a quiet stretch of beach is The Sound of Silence, an enchanting tearoom in a beautifully bohemian wooden house that spills out into a tropical garden and onwards to the beach. In the morning it’s the perfect spot for your caffeine shot and as the day ticks on, there’s wine and secluded spots where you can unfurl and work your way through a library of interior design books (as if you need further inspiration) or doze off to the sound of the sea.
