Nguyen Hue street runs from the Ho Chi Minh City Hall to the Saigon river. The present reconstruction is scheduled to reopen on 30 April 2015 for the 40th anniversary of the Reunification of Vietnam. A total rebuild will make it a pedestrian walking street. Flowers, trees, indirect lighting, statuary displays and a new Ho Chi Minh statue will be the highlights.
Nguyen Hue is the most central and busiest street of Ho Chi Minh city. It gathers many 4-5 star hotels, finance buildings, boutique shops and food shops. It’s the central of the center. Years ago, it used to be the flower street before TET holidays when all artisans and florists came and displayed their botanical flower trees. In Vietnam, Nguyen Hue is really a famous street.
Bach Dang ice cream shop was established since 1940s. This is some of the best ice cream in Ho Chi Minh city. There are lots of exotic flavors, making this place an ice cream lover’s paradise. Toppings consist of many fresh fruits. This is a long withstanding shop within proximity to Ben Thanh Market. It is always swarming with people, so it is hard to find a table. Service is quick, the staff is efficient.
If you’re looking for authentic Vietnamese food, come to Com Tam Cali restaurant. Actually, it is a chain of 10 restaurants in all districts of Ho Chi Minh city. “Com Tam”, or broken rice, used to be the most popular dish of Vietnamese during the subsidising period when Vietnam lacks foods to cover the domestic needs. When the economy got developing, “Com Tam” had been pushed in the past, but in early 2000s, a Viet Kieu “Vietnamese overseas” person woke it up by opening some restaurants serving this kind of rice in a new style. The food is tasty, the setting comfortable, the service fast and efficient and the choice of meals on offer is vast. Give it a try if you are in Ho Chi Minh and would like to sample the local cuisine.
