The street is busy and long, you can walk along the street do some shopping and try out many restaurants. There are a lot of coffee shops here which you can sit relax and enjoy a cup of good coffee and bakery.

So this is the high street of Saigon. Its quite pretty and the fact that traffic is relatively light makes the walk very pleasant. Old apartments cheek by jowl with more modern steel and glass, makes one believe the street will be quite different in a few years time, though for the time being the contrast feels nice.

When you have toured Vietnam this street is a real change. Full of upmarket and well known hotels and some chic shops. Very different than many of the streets we saw in Vietnam and consistent with how much more cosmopolitan Saigon is compared to so much of the country. Lively on he night of the celebration of Liberation Day. Worth... More

An over priced shopping street that was once Saigon's famous Rue Catinat. All the major brands are located on this street but at prices significantly greater than in other Asian capitals .Definitely a caveat emptor neighborhood.

There are any high end stores to distract you from the really nice small shops with excellent merchandise which is negotiable or if nothing else ask for them to throw something else in. The more you buy the more they will throw in without being cajoled. One BIG caution is there are street merchants who sell everything from sunglasses to... More

Shadowed street, former Boulevard, with plenty of stores and cafes; tourist oriented. Nice to start a ride in Saigon, and close to the Central Post Office

One of the main streets running through District 1 leads you to wherever you want to go. From the Saigon River, Dong Khoi St will lead you directly to Notre Dame Cathedral, to the Opera House or many otler locations, especially to the shopping areas.

This street has a Europen flair to it. Many upscale shopping stores and hotels here. You can also find some cool little cafes there. The other very modern side to Saigon.

Street filled with luxury brands, hotels and cafes. Worth a visit if you have an afternoon to while away as cafes are aplenty here. We visited the Trung Nguyen outlet to pick up some coffee powder and souvenirs for our family and friends back home.
