Bui Vien Street, Ho Chi Minh City

(3.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Walk under a jungle of electric cables, avoiding tuk tuks and scooters in Bui Vien Street, a super busy area of Ho Chi Minh teeming with young tourists and street vendors. Packed with bars, shops, restaurants, and cafes, this noisy street assaults all the senses, offering round-the-clock entertainment and activities to please anyone looking for urban adventure. A great place to have a local beer and inexpensive authentic food, the area features many clubs open until the wee hours of the morning. Mind your belongings and prepare to be hassled with massage offers as you walk the street. You may even witness an occasional police raid, as many shops openly sell glass pipes and tools used for smoking illegal narcotics.
