Little maze of back streets but some great cafes/funky lil bars and stores where you can pick up flyers for clubs etc... Friendly folk there too. Enjoy.
There are some nice lounge bars/cafes on An-ho Road, Section 2 (and a Carneiges)... But mainly catering to the ex-pat community. Also a little shopping mall with a great International Supermarket and a few designer stores but the mark up there is silly. Bali at the top of the subway line is nice too - if you like the local erm Seaside/ex fishing village ish.

However ANA do bonus miles on some routes but usually only domestically. And extra points for every $ spent on an ANA credit card...

ANA service in business has been top notch from my limited experience, and even their economy class service blew away anything from the States/Europe/Australia imho. Everyone can (and often does) have a different experience though. *Edit - ANA flights that are just a...
