I agree with a lot of the other reviewers. I am in Vietnam a while so have time. I went in the evening. Apparently they close at 21:00 but most of it was dead at 19:00. The ones that were open were rude and unfriendly as if I was a nuisance. The antiques looked more like junk from old living rooms rather than authentic items which were thrown in shops. Nothing was well arranged and shops were dusty. The area is seedy particularly in the evening. If you do go, I would recommend only going if you have a lot of time like me or have a real interest. Also suggest going earlier in the day when more vendors are open. Roughly an eight minute walk from the main Walking Street. Use the gps on your phone. Easy to find.

Very rude shop owners, many that are asleep. All items in these shops are extremely expensive! You can get the same types of items, many that are Chinese, in Cambodia for about 1/5th of the cost. And, of course they price everything in dollars.

I thought I might be able to find some nice interesting bargains, antique or fake, as I have an antique shop in Australia. What a joke. Nothing priced so you know straight away they are going to try and rip you off, but when you pick something up that you can buy for $50 in Australia and they want $400USD, that's bad. When they start hat high, you can't get a sensible price for something that the husband is sitting there making copies of "oh his is old, very old" says one lady, don't worry about the fact that the stall next door but one has the same thing.
Again, I say don't waste your time. I feel sorry for the gullible ones that fall for this rubbish

I'm quite into antiques and even I struggled with this one.
Quite a small street lined each side with many small antique shops. Nothing is cheap and not much appeas authentic. Prices are high and not readily negotiable.
In comparison there is a largish store for vintage items at the very end of Dhong Koi St near the Grand Hotel that is in itself 14 times more interesting. I purchased a 40 year old bowl there for $5 US that I personally don't give a hoot if it is authentic or not and it was packed for me into a woven bag for free that they are selling in the saigon backpacker district for $3 US.

This street is not far from Ben Thanh market, so you could pop over. It is a small street with many shops, don't know if the products are real or not, but I wouldn't really bother to be honest. Many large items of course dusty as it seems like very few customers. The owners do not harrass you though, generally they are nowhere to be seen. Seems like some items have come from a garage sale.

Lots of genuine and fake Asian “antiques” in this short street. Some nice stuff on display especially Art Deco lamps and Asian ceramics.

The shops in this street are mainly in older colonial era buildings making it a pleasant stroll. The shops are full of a variety of objects including porcelain, lots of brassware, old wooden objects with mother of pearl inlay, lamps and the usual bric a brac such as watches and jewellery.

We found the shopkeepers weren’t at all pushy but you’ll need to bargain hard to get the price down.

This is a great place to spend an hour if you’re interested in old things.

Fun little street to shop if you are looking for antique porcelains. Not inexpensive but lovely things. We bought several vases and bowls. A must if you are looking for something special. Right near the Ben Tranh market.

Have bought some nice pieces from Antique street over the years. Need to pour over what is available to find something that you like. Priced as antiques, but a lot are simply replicas or mid sixties era stuff.

Work out what want and how much you are prepared to pay and enjoy your shopping.

This has about 60 shops crammed together on either side of the street. In each shop you have hundreds of fake and real antiques. The stall owners are very honest and if you ask them from where and when they will tell you.

If you dig hard you can find some great things but be careful when leaving Vietnam as the government controls the antiques that come and go so keep your receipts and pray they let you keep it.
