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.

Still lots of people out and about. Street performers all around. I saw Spider-Man getting into dance act with some B-Boys.

During this day it´s too hot for walking around on the concrete ground but in the evening this is a very nice place to stroll around and enjoy the city lights.

Seemed like there was always something going on here by a group of performers. Lots of coffee cafes and restaurants along the boulevard and side streets (makes it hard to choose).
