If you are looking for something upmarket and tasteful, DK is the place to be. Note that many stores here also quote in USD, but you can opt to pay in VND. Certainly some nicer things than what you'd get at the markets.

yes, the street is cutting through the city center with underground railyway under construction, lots of high end shops and cafe sitting there. what i enjoyed walking it through is not those high priced imported merchandises with outrage brands, but the legendary site and views with strong European sense, and more French style of building, opera house, LV flagship store,...

The most busy street in Ho Chi Minh City. The atmosphere appropriate for Vietnam. You should go when visit Vietnam!

This street has more of a European vibe. It is home to some famous hotels and some luxury boutiques. It's just nice to take a little walk there, but alo have a look to the right and left: you will pass one of Saigon's mosques as well as the people's comittee house and the opera.

Some beautiful buildings and great shopping opportunities. Be careful of bags, cameras etc however as even though wide footpaths, bikes are known to drive along snatching bags etc as they go.

This is a tourist area in District 1. In the 70's it was Tudo Street. Very little has changed since then. It is a high price shopping area and the hustle is always on. It is a nice place to visit, but little more than that.

Dong khoi is changing fast, taken over by high priced stores but it still maintains its charm. You can always find places to eat and tourist shops that are a little more expensive than Ben than market. There's lots if construction going in the street parallel which makes it harder to walk around the city from Dong Khoi.

Good shopping and restaurants surrounded by the best hotels. Good atmosphere and fun place to be. Bought some great table clothes and kids clothes. There are some really high quality products available in HCM.

Great shops, modern and old, coffee-and tea houses, Grand Hotel, all a bit pricy, but very safe. Good Pho restaurant and other Vietnamese restaurants in side streets, definitely worth a visit.
