Description

Bach Dang Wharf is in the centre of District 1, near the Monument of General Tran Hung Dao which was built on Ton Duc Thang Street to commemorate the glorious victory against the Yuanmeng invaders in 1288 on the Bach Dang River.

On the occasion of the 300th anniversary of Sai Gon – Ho Chi Minh City (1699-1998), Bach Dang Park was upgraded with some architectures to serve the locals and tourists. Bach Dang Wharf has a total area of about 23,400m2 with a length of 1.3km and it is a green space of the city.

Nguyen Hue Street is a broad walking promenade in the middle of District 1 city centre. This pedestrian area is flanked by some beautiful French colonial architectural wonders like the People’s Comittee, the Rex Hotel and a luxury shopping mall. In front of the People’s Committee you find a statue of Uncle Ho Chi Minh and a fountain show by night.
