  • Dong Khoi street

    Formerly known as Rue Catinat during the French colonial days and Tu Do in the 1960s, this street was reborn during Doi Moi as the centre of Saigon’s commercial and shopping district.

  • District 3

    Bordering District 1 in the centre of Saigon, District 3 is quieter, more local and a touch more scenic than its disorderly neighbour.

Check out Thanh Da Island in Binh Thanh and Martyrs' Cemetery ...

  • District 5

    More popularly known as Cho Lon, this is Ho Chi Minh City's Chinatown. Unfortunately, it is decidedly less Chinese than it used to be due to the anti-Chinese campaign in the late 70's when many fled the country. Saigon's District 5 is home to the largest market in Vietnam, a deluxe shopping mall and charming Chinese pagodas such as Nghia ...
