  • I love being surrounded by books ... even if its in Vietnamese. A very intellectual ambience laced with some nice sculptors.

  • If you can read Viet it's perfect! Otherwise, walking and looking is till fun ;) Nice people all around!

  • Interesting little Street conveniently located right next to the central post office, hence the 4 stars rating as it is along the walking trail. Very popular with the young crowd and tourist. Some book stores line the walk path with a couple of small cafes. Choices of books may be limited but it is a sign that learning is inherent in vietnamese.

  • Lovely place for weekend, to fund a good book or just enjoy a cup of coffee during reading book

  • Amazing place and decent books
