Our guide book recommended this area for its colonial architecture. As travelers very familiar with Europe, this was, with a few exceptions, very disappointing. The highlights were the General Post Office and the People's Committee Building. The rest was pretty normal, except of course that it is in South East Asia , and not Europe. Also I suppose it is...

If you have the time while visiting Saigon to simply wander around this is the place. Tale note that crossing the very busy and hectic street is an adventure by itself but is is all part of the great experience of the street. Highly recommended!

This area is full speed ahead. There are thousands of motor bikes , cars and pedestrians and no one seems to get stressed. Just crossing the road is an adventure. Lots of tooting but no agro. Shopping is great and food readily available. We had plenty of meals at Hogs Breath Steak house which is close by.

Very bustling area. Take your time to go around the area. Many malls to escape the heat and restaurants too.

I enjoyed the party streets at night, this street during the day and at night. It was all lit up at night and we felt like in another place and certainly not Vietnam. It is highly structured, clean and casual. We had the great fortune of staying very close to this street in our HCMC stay and I'd recommend you... More

I like Dong Khoi. There are many cafes and shops. Especially I found my Photo- Shop in the Lucky Plaza in Dong Khoi. Reasonable prices and good service.

Best food all along this street. Many good french restaurants such as L'Usine which I highly recommend, sit out on the balcony and watch the people come and go from the beautiful Opera House.
