Nguyen Hue Walking Street - Flower Street (Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam)

Nguyen Hue walking street put officially into operation on April 2015. This pedestrian area is flanked by some beautiful French colonial architectural wonders like the People’s Comittee, the Rex Hotel and a luxury shopping mall.

In a city where pavements in the downtown area are dominated by motorcycles, often riding at speed, a proper walking space, free of motorbikes, is a welcome development. Shame about the overuse of pavers - a national obsession - and the sparing use of greenery and shade. But Saigon now has its additional tourist attraction. That is Nguyen Hue walking street which becomes an ideal destination not only for Saigon people but also for tourists near and far.

From Nguyen Hue street other sightseeing places are easily reached, you find the Saigon Opera House and Dong Khoi shopping street only 100 metres away. Besides this, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Reunification Palace are only a five minute walk. In the surrounding area you also have a wide variety of restaurants and bars to spend your time. Therefore it is an ideal location to do some sightseeing and relax afterwards.
