Antique Street

“It’s only 100 metres or so in length,” explains Rusty Compass, but that short street opposite Ben Thanh Market in the centre of town is “packed solid with small shops cramming in colonial memorabilia, Buddha statues, old coins, art, furniture and more.” But beware: “the majority of the stuff are fakes, priced as if it was unearthed in Angkor. Unless you are an absolute expert and know what’s what, proceed with extreme skepticism,” notes Travelfish.
