‘Book’ Street, Saigon

There is a beautiful street, the most beautiful, in Saigon between Hotel Intercontinental Asiana and the Notre Dame Cathedral that is lined with cute little bookshops and a book cafe. For a bookworm like me, it was a gem in this bustling city.

If you are ever here, it is well-worth a visit. Though most of the books are in Vietnamese, they are lovely:

And after a blissful late afternoon at the cafe in Book Street, may I suggest that you take a leisurely stroll to this lovely place for an early dinner?

It is called Quon An Ngon 138.  It’s a beautiful, open-air colonial building that housed stalls selling local fare. You can even watch the chefs cooking it for you!

The address is: 138 Nam Kỳ Khởi Nghĩa, Bến Nghé, Hồ Chí Minh, Bến Nghé.

And for a romantic finish to your idyllic day, do pop into Cafe Soi Bar for some mellow live music. No children allowed!

Have a good stay ❤
