Nguyen Hue Street, Ho Chi Minh City

Explore Nguyen Hue Street, a commercial hot spot for restaurants, cafes, and hotels. This pedestrian street formerly hosted the city's main flower market. Today, the street boasts lively crowds, packed restaurants, and modern multistory buildings. Take a walk around and people-watch, or dine at one of its many popular establishments. Though the market moved to a different location years ago, an annual flower festival still happens here during the Tet holiday. Nguyen Hue Street is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Ho Chi Minh City Edition.

    A huge place but it's better to come at night. U can see a very different side of it from such a quiet and boring one daytime.

    Looks fine on nightime but during daytime, avoid if you font want to be friwd with the sun and the heat. The street is filled with teenager life during nightime with improvision performance, group dance competition, or just simply chill out. Along the street are plenty of up-trend food and drink shops, book store... Bad things... dirty. Garbarge everywhere, some due to overflowed trash cans. Gum waste everywhere.

    View is surrounded by quite tall, good looking building. Lively crowded place. Free public toilets available (with mediocre cleanliness). Sometime you can be bothered by peddlers.
