Antiques

Le Cong Kieu Street, near Ben Thanh Market, is one of Saigon's best kept secrets. One hundred metres long and packed with more than 60 antique shops, every store is in turn jam packed with hundreds of items. Rummage through the treasure trove of stone statues, lamps, ceramic pots, clocks and coins and you unearth a rare find. Be aware that only 30% of the goods on display are real antiques, the rest are reproductions. Cap your day with a visit to the HCMC Fine Arts Museum only a few blocks away.

Saigon's antique market holds many interesting finds regardless of authenticity. The shops on Le Cong Kieu are crammed to the rafters with art, coins, Buddhas (of course) furniture, clocks - even old European electronics! Make an afternoon of it by walking over from Ben Thanh Market, a short distance away. After you tire of browsing antiques head to the Fine Arts Museum a short stroll away.
