A walking tour around district 1, centre of Saigon

For those who love walking and taking streetlife pictures, a walking tour around bustling Saigon (Vietnam) - district 1 will start at administration area (Post Office Centre, Notre Dame Cathedral, People Committee, Reunification Palace) to Little Japan Saigon (Le Thanh Ton street, Thai Van Lung street), then Saigon backpacker area (Bui Vien street, Pham Ngu Lao street, De Tham street, Do Quang Dau street), back to Ben Thanh market and end at the beginning.

As a walking tour, you might be in many streets. It depends on what you would like to see or to take pictures, or what suddenly lead you into. Some streets that you might pass over: Le Duan street, Nguyen Van Binh street, Hai Ba Trung street, Ton Duc Thang street, Le Thanh Ton street, Thai Van Lung street, Nguyen Hue walking street, Tran Hung Dao street, Pham Ngu Lao street, Bui Vien street, Do Quang Dau street, Le Lai street, Nguyen An Ninh street, Ly Tu Trong street, Pasteur street... Please be noted that "đường" in Vietnamese means "street".
