“Worth a stroll but generally uninspiring”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Historically relevant but lacking much of its former charm with some exceptions. I agree that the side streets hold more interest and hidden gems (have one particular bakery in mind). Take it all the way to the river and stop in at the old Majestic Hotel, take the matchbox elevator to the rooftop restaurant & bar, and enjoy an inflated lunch or drink while overlooking the industrial Saigon River, understanding instantly why your room stocks bottled water.

“Main street, but take side streets as well”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is where the best shops and restaurants are. Come and walk along here but don't be afraid to walk down the other side streets for local fare

“worth a quick stroll”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I thought this street was over rated. Yes, there is a Notre Dame lookalike and the Post office is in the design of Musee DÓrsay but, really? I like the statue of Ho Chi Minh and the topiary.
