Antique Street, Ho Chi Minh City

2.5
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. Make Antique Street part of your personalized Ho Chi Minh City itinerary using our Ho Chi Minh City trip planner.

  • I came across a street where they are selling porcelain vases and others. I dont know the place. I bought many pieces with just 100 USD. Worth a buy.  more »
  • Interesting and a huge range of goods. Some obvious fakes and some maybe not so. A good way to spend some time  more »
