Nice selection of shirts, blouses and dresses. Owner was very professional and helpful. We did not try to bargain as prices seemed very reasonable for good quality clothing. She can also tailor to order fast.

Awesome street for clothing and fabric articles. Silk sleeping bag liners are plentiful and woven silk scarves. This street also has a mighty good selection of massage salons so shop and then drop in for a massage. Perfect!

Don't try to bargain with the shop owners. They get really pissed. Tried to buy an ao dai and their prices were around VND650,000 and above.

Great shopping place, especially if you are looking for souvenirs. However, be prepared for some hard bargaining.

It is a very busy street with a lot of commercial activities, mostly for tourists. There are many tailors, silk shops and bazaar like shop. A lot of street traffic. OK but unremarkable.
