We had been reading that this is "the" shopping street with great opportunities, so we were little disappointed. There are shops and restaurants, some street hawkers and massage places, but the overall expression is modest. Without expectations it probably is better experience. Later on we learned that the souvenir shops along the street had a bit pricier tags on the... More

Dong Khoi Street is in downtown Sai Gon. Downtown HCM city is called Sai Gon. This street has a massive history. During French times Graham Greene wrote about it as Rue Catinat. His girl friend's favourite ice-cream shop was on this street (until a couple of years ago). The bomb exploded in front of the Opera House in this street.... More

It was the posh street of HCMC. We didn't really buy anything, it was way off our price range. Lol. But it was nice looking at all the posh things on this posh street. You'll feel really posh. We didn't stay long here though, we just passed thru after the City Hall on to the next. I heard there were... More

We have been walking more than 20km in Saigon so we could not miss Dong Khoi street. It is defiantly one of the nicest streets in Saigon and worth a visit but not a must. You"ll find fancy (mostly western) restaurants and expensive stores.

A lot of trendy restaurants and souvenir shops along the street. But price is steep. Nice walk from Majestic hotel to the Opera house at night.

So many must sees on this street: the Rex Hotel that was famous for American soldiers to come for drinks. The American foreign correspondents met here daily to be briefed during war. We had drinks and appetizer on roof restaurant and bar. What a view. This is old Saigon central during the war. Lots of restaurants, shops, along the way.... More

Huge walking area in the front of the capital building. I was really impressed. My teenagers loved it. Skateboarders, colored fountains, nice restaurants, beautiful scenery, and nice shops. This is a must see for Ho Chi Minh City.
