Its clean and pretty so it's a place to pass time. It has all the usual brands like Versace on the street, but the part I like is further away from Ben Thanh market. Its the area where they sell art. There are random alley ways of art stores. If it wasn't for luggage space, I'd take a serious look... More

Our hotel was located on Dong Khoi, as a result we walked this street daily. Local shops, boutiques, hotels, restaurants, cafes, shopping centres, massage and spa, historical buildings; all there on or adjacent to this street. Regarded as the premier street in HCM City, it has something to suit all pockets but still worthwhile to venture further afield. Busy street... More

We returned to this street in the evening, this time, and did some window shopping in it, but ended up not buying anything. The honking of the scooters is non-stop. Literally. The area surrounding the opera house is beautiful, while the rest is, well - rather ordinary.

Restaurants, shops, books, hotels and souvenirs are what you find here. Great central location with all you need. Great photo ops can be had here as well. Just a great place to walk around.

Dong Khoi is great for shopping and there are some lovely restaurants to eat at. Do yourself a favour and visit Ice Blue Bar. Dung and the girls are bound to make you feel more than welcome and you will have a great time and a laugh.

The Dong Khoi section of the city of Saigon is the happening place for now. It has some of the best and most famous hotels in the city not to mention Saigon Center close by and many of the city's department stores are located either on the street or near it. It is "THE" shopping section of the city. Don't... More

To appreciate this famous street, it is really necessary to know a lot of history, and be able to see the places which are now gone, the Givral Cafe, once at the bottom of the Eden Building...spend some time doing the research, otherwise it is simply a place now where you get constantly approached by folk trying to sell something....for...
