  • Vibrant street for any time of the day. Bars and restaurants are always open, with plenty of shops and even rooftop gems to visit. Fun environment.  more »
  • You have to choose. Street bustling with activity 24 hours a day, but especially at night: buzz, music, lots of bars serving a variety of spirits and the restaurant with a delicious and affordable food, street kitchens where you can try a variety of Vietnamese dishes, plenty of vendors and beaters. I recommend very Chi's Cafe in one of the side streets-very good food and friendly staff.
