Only visit this place at night. It gets very hot walking this street in the afternoon. Plenty of restaurants and shopping to see. Very vibrant at night with colourful lights and loud beeping from cars and bikes :)

The heart of District 1, Dong Khoi Street has a wide range of shops from small souvenir shops to high end retail outlets such as Gucci. The Parkson Centre, Vincom Centre and Diamond Plaza are all located on this road - these are the big 3 in shopping centres. Most of the high end hotels are located on this road... More

We walked along this Dong Khoi Street every day from our hotel near the Saigon River to the Central Post Office, Notre Dame Cathedral, and beyond. There are several high-end hotels, shopping centres, boutiques, and restaurants in this street. On the way to the cathedral, you will walk past the Opera House (on your right). It's a comfortable walk as... More

A very touristy street, lots of eateries and lots of souvenir shops along this street. It's clean, safe and located in downtown of the city.

If you are a first-time traveler to HCMC, and wondering where to stay, you would have made an excellent choice if you were to opt for a hotel in Dong Khoi Street, which has from mid-tier to the high end hotels. For travelers who prefer hotels with a bit of 'character', there are quite a number of those - Majestic... More

This can be compared to the Orchard Road of Singapore. You can find all the luxury brands, 4-5 stars hotel and high-end cafes, souvenir shops and spas that offer cheap but very relaxing foot and body massages.

Walking in the hot day in early rainy season for Ho Ci Minh City is not a good choice but to avoid the heat you can enter high end stores or department store which located along the street, or enjoy the afternoon in the park nearby.

With the cathedral, post office and opera house all on the same street, this end of Dong Khoi is an essential visit. Further down, towards the river, the 5 star hotels and high end shops predominate before the more affordable cafes, souvenir shops and a market nearer to the Saigon River end can be found. Worth a walk down to... More
