There are fewer vendors selling English language newspapers in Saigon these days but they can still be found along Dong Khoi Street in the heart of District 1. Otherwise, it’s worth checking the lobbies of any of the five-star hotels in the area for titles like The New York Times, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, or The Australian, which are generally available a day or two after publication in their home countries. Local English language daily papers Vietnam News and the Saigon Times are also distributed. If this area draws a blank, try the biggest bookstore in town:
