Antique Street, Ho Chi Minh City

(2.6/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
Antique Street, the oldest street in Saigon, is not only a great shopping spot, but a place where people can get an inkling of a small piece of Vietnamese history by observing or even buying objects dating from various periods of the past. However, be careful, as not all items on sale are genuine antiques, furthermore, only 20% of merchandise is estimated as authentic, whereas everything else is only a replica. But that’s the charm of this small street packed with Buddha statues, ancient gongs, old coins, pottery, ceramics, furniture antiques and much more, because it’s real-fake nature turns casual shopping into exhilarating treasure hunt. 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.

  • We visited this short street (about 150m) as it was near to Ben Thanh Market. There were only a few shops selling similar stuff, such as porcelain ware, bronze objects, old notes and coins etc. Seller...  more »
  • The advantage is that it does not take a lot of time because there are only about 20 shops offering all the same... Good location (near the market Ben Thanh and bus station). Excessive prices. Prohibited export or false object (a lot of so-called silver coins are steel: do the magnet - a magnet - or test).

  • Even if you don't plan to buy anything, just for the sake of "general development" walk on this street. A lot of interesting merchandise, including a huge number of various statues of Buddha. True, prices are inflated, probably due to the fact that each salesperson in a separate shop. However, if you can buy a purposeful search for truly rare thing for a good price. In General, be careful and patient, if you want to buy something).
