A high class shopping street

It's a good place for rich people to shop and eat. It's nice to walk along sometimes. There are many western restaurants and gift shops for tourist here.

Coz it's right in the very central of the downtown, it's even more characteristic than some other streets around like Nguyen Hue or Le Loi boulevards. Shops, cafes, restaurants, bookstores, all can be found in here. Take a walk to Nguyen Thiep & Mac Thi Buoi streets as well, these 4 little streets make the best lively block in Saigon... More

There are a lot of shopping areas around here but they are always overpriced and you have no clue to bargain. You will get hooked anyway. So, don't shop in this area. This area is one of historic sites in Saigon. So you can spend a day to explore by yourself. A lot of interesting things along this street. If... More

A bustling area in Ho Chi Minh; lots of commercial & high-rise buildings & high-end shops. One can also admire more french colonial buildings in this area than any other in the city; reminiscent from when French occupied then-Saigon. The Opera House is also in this area.

Had an hour here but it was not for us. Plenty of fake (sorry replica) clothing and other knock off goods. Intended to buy a genuine fake rolex but none I was shown was worth worrying about - might have missed the best stall but so be it. One woman followed us right around the market with 'your size' fake... More

Many people roaming and walking the street. Its better to sit high up in the cafes (palace hotel-2nd floor), book building 5.6.7 floor, rex hotel bar etc to see the street.

A good location to spend a couple of hours. I prefer to shop in the outlying areas of the city but here you can enjoy clean and quality shopping area.
