  • This would perhaps be the most happening place to be, if you like to indulge in the night life scene. It is good to visit and walk down the street for a while to feel the atmosphere like what I did.  more »
  • Open-style bar street, go to love at once! Late at night there are a lot of different countries gathering in a piece of music to enjoy the bombing, crazy Hot Dance, recommended to Ho Chi Minh City must go to a trip!
