Great location for a bit more upscale shops. Look up and see the historical buildings. This is such a beautiful street!

This is an upscale HCMC street, very different of others in the area. There's the famous and beautiful Saigon opera along with many high end fashion stores, art galleries, exclusive hotels and restaurants. Such a street is very usual for Europe, but here in Saigon, after the street vendors and bikes madness it seems like being from another planet.

Dong Khoi Street is HCMC's "5th Avenue", complete with the fancy shops carrying international name brands... there's also a number of locally owned stores that sell Vietnamese items too, as well as some sidewalk vendors selling trinkets + snacks... coffee shops are found here & offer a respite from the afternoon heat :)) (Note that these places are priced "ala...

Known as Rue Catin under the French, it is anchored by their cathedral and post office at one end, the the fabulous Majestic Hotel on the banks of the Saigon River at the other. Not a particularly long walk, but you will pass the famous Hotel Continental and the Opera House, as well as the Caravelle Hotel.

This street represents the modern, upper class Ho Chi Minh. There are 4 to 5 stars hotels, boutique shops, targeting the up market consumers. Lucky Plaza, Parkson, Vincom Centre and Opera House are located here. It is much brighter and cleaner. It is in stark contrast with Biu Vien Street, with many small shops, eateries, small bars, targeting backpackers. Go... More

The area has all the high end designer shops, but there were some reasonably priced clothing shops in the area too with quite nice designs. Not cheap though, just more reasonably priced. I found shopping in Vietnam tricky because nothing fitted and I didn't really like the fabrics used. I'm quite small but still nothing fitted so I quite enjoyed... More

This street should be the pinnacle of walking through the city for admiring architecture of the street, with little shops and restaurants. if you are young, it is still oke, you can zig zag your way between the street vendors, heaps of motorbike taxi's and cars, waiting to pick up local shoppers. The Pavement (which was redone in 2009) is... More

Stayed in hotel on side st. Mixture of small souvenir shops and high end ones, like Gucci, Yves st Laurent. Post office was interesting. Cathedral was closed. Very noisy with traffic. Thousands of scooters, some even on the correct side of road. Interesting architecture, mix of French, modern, and old. Pavements have many hazards on them. Piles of stuff, motorbikes,... More
