You will probably walk along the Catinat street, now known as Dong Khoi... full of touristic shops, few remaining old buildings as they got hit down by the modernism... the part toward the river has still the most charm. Anyway you will for sure walk alongthis street as it is so central!

This is the very wealthy part of Saigon where you will find upmarket shops and dept stores along with 5 Star Hotels. Sometimes walking down Dong Khoi street its hard to believe you are actually still in Vietnam it's so Westernized.

What a street particularly at night with the once famous "war" hotels that war correspendants all resided & filed their stories. The Opera house lit up at night makes a grand statement as to how far Saigon has come.

It is the centre but venture further away to get the real Ho Chi Min experience. The best thing about it is that the beautiful buildings and sites are nearby.

This street is in the Centre of Ho Chi Minh with designer shops and hotels. It's worth a walk around and to take pictures. My friend and I looked at all the things we couldn't afford.
