42 Nguyen Hue Apartment - The most unique entertainment spot in District 1

Translated by Bing
National Geographic UK once shared an image of 42 Nguyen Hue apartment with the caption: "This is an old apartment complex renovated for coffee business, restaurants, workspaces to attract a large number of young people." Located right in front of the pedestrian street, visitors are not too difficult to find this interesting place at the first time.

The apartment building has 9 floors. Guests can choose to take the stairs or elevator at a fee of VND 10,000 / time. Each shop here has its own color, so it is quite interesting. Some cafes also attract guests because of the balcony area with direct views down the pedestrian street. Not only Vietnamese tourists, but 42 Nguyen Hue apartment also attracts foreign visitors.
