Antique Street, Ho Chi Minh City

#47 of 120 in Shopping in Ho Chi Minh City
Antique Store Shopping
Antique Street, the oldest street in Saigon, is not only a great shopping spot, but a place where people can get an inkling of Vietnamese history by observing or buying objects dating from various periods of the past. Here's the caveat, though--not all items on sale here are genuine antiques. If you don't mind paying a premium for the real deal or picking up a few fakes as interesting souvenirs, consider Buddha statues, gongs, old coins, pottery, ceramics, and furniture. Our Ho Chi Minh City itinerary planner makes visiting Antique Street and other Ho Chi Minh City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
