If you are out and about Saigon, this street is too good to miss. Take yourself to Nguyen Van Binh Street. It is opposite the Notre Dame Cathedral and around the corner from the Saigon Post Office. If you are on the tourist trail you will be sure to happen upon it. On it you will find 20 small bookshops selling new and vintage books. If you are desperate for a good read, in English, do not despair, you will find a few here. I cannot vouch for the selection or choices in other languages but you will have fun looking.
