Check out the old apartment block at N°42 Nguyen Hue. This 9 story apt building is full of hip, independent cafes and fashion boutiques. Start at the top and check out the cafes or boutiques until you find something you like. It's fill of trendy Vietnamese youth. One of the highlights of Saigon and stands out compared to souvenir or western brand shops. Our teens loved it. It has a bit of a grungy feel to it but each shop is so wonderfully and uniquely designed it works. There are several of these throughout Saigon including 14 Ton That Dam St, District 1 which is the original 'apartment' that was converted into hip businesses.
