Another great area that has been replaced with high end shops. The Vietnamese community is in such a rush to show the world how modern they are that they think nothing of destroying their heritage. It's as if a sickness has infested the city over the past few years. A very different place from when we came during the early... More

Not that much of interest here - lots of upmarket 'brand' shops, fancy eateries and 5 star hotels - runs parallel to Hai Ba Trung and Nguyen Hue (Ho Chi Minh statue and Saigon Squares) - passes in front of the Opera House and down to the Saigon River - unless you have something specific to do here give it...

This street, and the adjacent 3km long Hai Ba Trung street, has the best shops, and the most western brands' stores, in Ho Chi Minh City. On a scortching day it's nice to visit some cool shops.

A key street leading down to the river. There are designer shops here, several large hotels, and iconic buildings such as the opera house, the cathedral and the post office.

Someone told me this street can be compared to Orchard of Singapore as most if not all of the Flagship stores of famous brands can be found here. That being the case we might get the impression that stores that can be found here are expensive but not the case. Souvenir shops ever offer better prices compared to stores that... More
