I Remembered Tu Do Street
Mar 2021
Dong Khoi was very famous during the Vietnam War and named Tu Do Street. You have to visit the Majestic Hotel and Maxim's. Of course the History was Continental Restaurant and Caravelle. I also recall the Brinks BOQ disaster. Not as many Bars as during the war but many restaurants and massage parlors remain. If you like Art, there were plenty of Art Studios. See this area once a week.

Walking along Ho Chi Minh's high-end street!
Jan 2020
The old "Rue Catinat" from the French colonial years has been renamed twice. Firstly, during the period of the Vietnam War, to "Tu Do Street", meaning "Freedom Street". Later, after the War, it was renamed to its actual name - "Dong Khoi Street", or the "Total Revolution Street". No matter the name, it has always been a center of glamour and charm, the true heart of Saigon's, or Ho Chi Minh City's, commercial life. Take your time and walk along this high-end street, from its Southern end, on Saigon River banks, up to "Notre-Dame Square", passing by some historical buildings as "Hotel Continental", "Hotel Majestic", "Grand Hotel", "Palais Café", "Saigon Opera House", "Central Postal Office" and finally, "Notre-Dame Cathedral". Check the top international brands stores, the beautiful cafés and the best restaurants in town! Unmissable! Bring your credt card and enjoy!

Shopping district of HCMC
Mar 2020
This is one of the main shopping streets in the centre of HCMC. Plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants along here as well as a few of the major hotels. There's also the iconic colonial era Opera House to see here. Metro still wasn't finished when I visited in March 2020 - seems to be taking a very long time for that to be completed.

Slightly Walkable Area, but Beware of Traffic
Feb 2020
Some parts of this area are walkable, but you still need to be hypervigilant, even on the sidewalk as motorbikes are apt to drive on it even when the road is completely empty. Not a safe place to walk with kids or a stroller. Be mindful and be careful.

Fashionable Street
Feb 2020
Lots of shops and hotels - a very fashionable street in central Saigon. Can't really miss it but not worth going out of your way to see either

Doing the Graham Green Walk
Feb 2020
Dong Khoi, formerly Catinat Street (in french times) is THE walk for this city. The old sites are the true highlights of the old town. Stop for coffee at either the Majestic or the Continental, or even both. Then cocktails at the Bitexco Tower near the river

All lit up
Jan 2020
As the lunar new year approaches many parts of Saigon are decorated to the max. This street was all lit up at night and is a pleasant walk and gives you many chances to make that dreaded challenge of crossing the road. Pick your moment and cross steadily without hesitation. The drivers will adjust to you as long as they know what you are doing. If you hesitate and stop and start then there is more of a chance of something bad happening.
