Dong Khoi Street is a tree lined,interesting street. There are lovely old Hotels like The Grand and The Magestic. Plus there are many narrow shops selling a wide range of souvenirs, such as the welded helicopters made from spark plugs and nuts and bolts. Beautiful woven fabrics, embroideries, bags and those lovely pop up, cut out cards. You can book... More

Fascinating - A street of contrasts. The old and the new. Western (kind of) and Asian. Traditional shop and a myriad of street vendors, etc. Dangerous (for pedestrians). As in most of Ho Chi Minh City's streets, vehicles have right of way. Apparently, a population of 10 million has about 5 million motorcycles. It seems like every m/c is on... More

Great place for shopaholics. Plenty of bargains to be had if your prepared to barter and stick to your price and be prepared to walk away if your not convinced it's a good deal. Shops can be small and a bit cramped, can get very humid in them during the day. Overall a fun way to buy your treasures.

Dong Khoi street the city’s main street that runs through the center of District one, is currently undergoing massive changes, with entire blocks being razed and towering monoliths such as “Times Square”, half-way down the street, set to transform its image further still in the near future. Fortunately the street still has some character in the form of chic boutiques... More

One of the classic streets of both the modern and historical Saigon. Formerly Tu Do street and before that the Catinat street. Here you will find the opera house, the classic Caravelle and Continental hotels and at the north end the cathedral, it also stretches down to the river in the southern end. You can spend a few hours shopping... More

Whether you are looking for some souvenir shops or local brands from clothes to cosmetics, this is probably the right place to go. Nothing special besides the shopping scene, I personally wouldn't necessary recommend this place if you are not looking for any shopping experience.

For those items other than the super luxury brands, this is the best street to find good quality silks, some nice art galleries. Lots of street vendors and those offering spa massages at low prices. I've done them and enjoyed them.

Escape from the real city of Saigon. For the most part, the sidewalks are clear and not broken up. Very little trash. Posh hotels, restaurants and stores. No motorbikes riding on the sidewalk - a whole different experience. We went one evening for dinner.
