This street is the place to go if you want to be over charged. At the moment it is nicely lit up at night, but other than that I would avoid this street. If you want to et a real taste of Ho Chi Minh City venture down the side streets or embark on a journey to one the districts... More

Activity day and night. Some decent restaurants surrounding, but high western pricing. Shops sell higher quality items, but shop with care as a lot of junk surrounds it.

Dong Khoi Street is an upscale part of HCMC but along the streets you also see plenty of local art works being sold as well as art supplies.

After Hanoi, it was so nice to walk on a sidewalk! Nice shops with AC. Some pricier than others. We enjoyed popping in and out.

On this street you have the large shops, small souvenir shops and other in between. Good pricing on items and not too far away a nice walk along the river. Lots of traffic but they will drive around you if you make the effort to step out.

The whole street is filled with more upmarket souvenir shops & 5 stars hotels, & lots of traffic near the t junction at Riverside. Nothing particularly appealing to us, but it's good to pop into the high end hotels & malls to look at the architecture.

Dong Khoi is lined with shops and is crazy with traffic - and there are several big brand stores and designers here. Historically, it's interesting to see the Continental Hotel, Opera House and the Majestic Hotel, each still stands proudly wearing its European heritage. There are souvenir stores here too, but the prices reflect their downtown location. At night, the... More
