It would almost seem a world apart from all the rest of the city. The Dong Khoi street is a beautiful road in the heart of HCMC. It was nice to walk down this street full of shops and fashion boutiques, luxury and beautiful colonial buildings, in short, seems to be somewhere else for a moment, cleanliness and order, I... More

Dong Koi is an interesting street to wander, there is the Opera, the Old Post Office, the Cathedral at the North end.

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 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
