Dong Koi is an interesting street to wander, there is the Opera, the Old Post Office, the Cathedral at the North end. Down the Southern End there are many street people that will offer you a massage and other thingsn which can get annoying, the Northern end is well worth a visit though to see the historic buildings, a must...

I think it is the most beautiful street in Ho Chi Minh City and this is a must because there are a lot of luxury restaurants and hotels along. I have just a little thing to share with all is the price. Wow! EXPENSIVE! If you just take a walk, a look, that is ok but if you want to... More

Have been to Ho Chi Minh 3 times, and always have a stroll down Dong Khoi. There is a bit of everything-cheap and cheerful eateries, high end eateries....local tourist trap shops, fashion, jewellery, optometrists, and great people watching. Escape the heat of the day, with a delicious long cocktail, or wonderful Vietnamese ice cream..

This certainly a street for the rich. It has all the labels you could throw a stick at with the price tags to boot. If you have to ask the price of things, generally you shouldn't bother....we didn't and couldn't

This street is pretty much the center of the old city that I recall from 40+ years ago. It is full of high end shops and retailers and 4&5 star hotels. Go if only for a drink.

Lovely area in the middle of the CBD in Saigon. Lots of very modern shops, mainly western influence, very clean with bright gardens to compliment the buildings. Nice to walk around, explore and grab a coffee and a bite to eat.

Dong Khoi street has many boutique shops and even more places to eat. Most of the streets are quite clean and always very busy, lots of traffic around the area so must be careful when crossing roads

One you are in Dong Khoi, It's no different from other CBD in the world. This street is the heart of Vietnam surrounded by all highrise and complexes with colonial designs. It's a shopping heaven and a must visit place. Places like modern Union Square, Vincom Centre, Parkson, City Hall, Opera House are all within 2-5 minutes walk. Lots of... More
