What does Saigon have? Saigon has a bustling Nguyen Hue pedestrian street, a coffee culture, a crowded West Bui Vien street, a skyscraper Bitexco building, sleepless nights,… Besides a bustling Saigon Thus, “Xi Street” also has an ancient, peaceful and beautiful Chinese Quarter like in Hong Kong movies. Besides the modern restaurants, there are still very “Saigon” shops. Let’s go to Saigon for a day!
1. Fresh milk Mười
With the whisper of a friend from Saigon, we woke up early in the morning to visit Muoi fresh milk. Saigon people, who live in Saigon, there is no one who does not drink fresh milk at least once.
Muoi fresh milk shop is just this small.
Menu at the restaurant.
But what does this idyllic 20-year-old milk shop have that customers keep coming in endlessly? It’s the cutest owner in Saigon, the shop is family-style, so everything is very simple and gentle. Those are plastic chairs for both sitting and making tables, Saigon people are also strange, the owner told about the first days of opening the shop, there were not many “tall” tables and chairs, but changed to plastic chairs. It’s okay, a lot of people come and go.
7 am at the bar.
It is a shop selling rustic foods that any age group loves, especially Muoi fresh milk has a cool milk taste, not too sweet, so it is very popular with people to enjoy!
2. turtle Lake
Going to Saigon for a day, no matter how tight time is, without visiting the Turtle Lake, is not considered a visit to Saigon. This work is also known as the International Square. Find your way to Con Rua Lake, you will come to the traffic roundabout connecting Vo Van Tan, Pham Ngoc Thach and Tran Cao Van streets.
Not only a cultural-historical work, a witness to the history of the country, this 50-year-old park is also a favorite hangout place for young Saigonese or tourists. The lake is designed in an octagonal architectural style, divided by borders on a lake, in the middle of the terrarium there is a block of 5 rows of reinforced concrete columns 34 m high, on the top there is an inverted arch. out like petals.
Relax in the lake.

3. Ho chi minh museum
We used to be infatuated with Bich Phuong’s Bua Love MV, so on this 1 day trip to Saigon, we visited the Ho Chi Minh Museum. This Art Deco building is your destination. Don’t miss it when going to Saigon for 1 day!
The stairs are full of magic.
The Bitexco court is far away.
The place I look forward to the most in this journey of discovering Saigon is the Chinatown in District 5, District 6. Making a Chinese Street are houses built in the late 19th century and 1920s, It has an architectural style imbued with Chinese identity, is a bustling Lon market, is the Chinese people living in Saigon for many generations.
To this day, Chinatown still retains its traditional identities. Chinatown of people from Trieu Chau, Fujian as a unique feature in the picture of the pearl of the Far East – Saigon. We chose the bus to move to this Chinatown because it will be much more interesting when you just walk and watch the lives of the people, the old-fashioned dormitory buildings, the rows of rows of streets. Shops along the way hang Chinese signs,…
Ha Chuong Assembly Hall
Making the unique feature of the Chinatown, it is impossible not to go to the Hoi Quan. Ha Chuong Assembly Hall (also known as Chuong Chau Assembly Hall, Ong Huoc Pagoda, Ba Ha Chuong Pagoda) has the unique architecture of the Fujian Chinese people with the roof tops sagging and the tops of the blades and the tops of the roofs soaring. giving the club the shape of a boat.

Tue Thanh Assembly Hall (Ba Temple)
Next to Mach Kiem Hung school, Ba Thien Hau pagoda – the oldest temple in Saigon – has a fairly large area and has typical Chinese architecture: on the roof, roof and porch The pagoda is densely attached with round statues, Ceramic reliefs look very eye-catching, materials in Hoi Quan are brought from China.
Each hanging incense ring is a talisman for peace and luck.
