Office Of The Week

M2C Cafe, Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam
[M2C Cafe, Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam]

I don’t joke when I say there is a new cafe opening in Ho Chi Minh City every week. This week I got to check out M2C Cafe in district 3, opposite the War Remnants Musuem. This is the second M2C Cafe (and part of the Id cafe family). I like the work tables at this cafe and it could become another regular.


  1. Looks like a great place to work. Love the big wooden tabletop :-)
    That internship (yes, competition…?) looks amazing, too!
