Dong Khoi Street in Saigon

Dong Khoi Street belongs to District 1- a luxuriant central urban Saigon central district. It is over 600 meters long and starts from Notre-Dame Cathedral at Saigon Paris Square and ends at Ton Duc Thang Street by Saigon river.

Dong Khoi Street is one of the most bustle and crowded streets of Ho Chi Minh City. Beside Le Loi Street and Nguyen Hue Street, this is one of the three streets with highest land price in this city. It is also one of the city’s two main commercial centers (the other is Nguyen Hue Street). This street is the gathering place of a great number of big restaurants (Nam Kha restaurant) , famous hotels (Caravelle Hotel, Sheraton Hotel, Majestic Hotel), luxurious trade centers (Lucky Plaza, Yamaha Showroom), popular stores (Parkson Department Store, Xuan Thu Bookstore)…

Especially, on this street are three original French architectural works: The Saigon Opera House built in 1897 by French architect Ferret Eugene, Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica – a cathedral established by French colonists and constructed between 1863 and 1880 and Saigon Central Post Office designed and constructed by the famous architect Gustave Eiffel. They are all famous tourist attractions which draw the attention of millions of visitors every year. Tourists to Saigon usually combine Saigon city tour with a trip to Cu Chi tunnels which is located 60km far from Saigon center.

With the advantage of numerous boutiques, shops, café, shopping centers, restaurants… which are convenient for day and night walking, on each festival, Dong Khoi Street becomes the walking street of the city.

During the French occupation, it was the centre of glamour and was called Rue Catinat. It became Tu Do or Freedom Street during the Vietnam War. When the Communists took over Saigon in the late 1970s, the name changed again to Dong Khoi, which means Total Revolution.
