Expensive drinks in most of the places but relative cheap food. Sometimes, it is extremely crowded (can't almost walk).

This area is basically the hub of the nightlife in the city, it has lots of hotels and cheap bars for backpackers, spa's to relax in for the ladies many places to eat and there is something for everyone and if there isn't there will be close by.

The bad thing is the tourists get drunk and make trouble with the locals which creates tension and then some issues occur and wild fights break out.

Be street smart don't wear gold chains hanging out and watch your pockets, don't leave your phone out on the table and keep a good grip on your handbag ladies.

Those are my tips for Vietnam and most Southeast Asian countries.

The street is full of pubs, restaurants, Barber and massage as well as some nice hotels and guest houses.
The beer is cheap and the food is so so. This is the place to hang out at night for the persons who want see many people passer by and lot of tourists.
Just one evening is enough.

If you're looking for HCM's nightlife then this is a good start.

A string of bars that try to invite and seat you, cheap beers, and loud music. This is the atmosphere you want if you're looking to get drunk! I highly recommend trying some of the food vendors that walk up and down the road. Very cheap and delicious caramelized squid and grilled octopus. Chicken wings are delicious as well.

You should definitely come here your first night to really take in the humidity, knock down some drinks and get a feel of Ho Chi Minh!

It has so many bars and restaurants and thousands of people. We stayed in a hotel there and every night it was so funny being there.
