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.
