Antique Street, Ho Chi Minh City
(2.6/5 based on 45 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.
