You've come to the city you might as well see ground zero. Pretty crazy here but it's especially fun to see how they string all the communication lines down the street. No way to trouble shoot this stuff! If a line goes bad i assume...More

Very good experience and well entertained by the people there and the atmosphere. Pretty similar to Bangla road in Patong, Phuket but softer and nicer. The drinks not that cheap but reasonable price. Food, not bad but better dine outside. Good for a night out...More

I, by chance, stayed around here. It's very crowded, lots of bars and noises. but luckily the noise is only on this street, not affect our stay. I recommend the EGG Coffee shop on this road. The coffee here is so good :)

The best shopping, massage, food, walking distance to all. Locals are very friendly. Bottle shops like the ones we have in Australia are non existent. Circle K is the local eqvelent to a mini mart. I bought the ‘vodka hanoi’,fantastic, $7.5!!!

There are 3 different Phan Ngu Lao streets all close together, near Bui Vien Street in District #1. My hotel is located on the quiet segment! 100's of shops, hotels, restaurants, bars, street vendors and 1,000's of motorbikes!
