Saigon’s City Center To Be Blocked Off For Reunification Day Celebrations

Navigating your way around downtown Saigon will be a tad nightmarish over the next week, as numerous streets will be closed off for the upcoming Reunification Day celebrations.

Following a month-long closure of sections of Le Duan and Pasteur in front of the Independence Palace, the Department of Transport has announced that from April 22 to April 30, the area bounded by Nguyen Binh Khiem, Nguyen Huu Canh, Le Thanh Ton, Pham Hong Thai, Cach Mang Thang Tam, and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Streets will be cordoned off and restricted to pedestrian use only at various points over the next week:

7:00 am to 11:00 am on April 22, 6:00 pm to 12:00 pm on April 24, 4:00 am to 11:00 am on April 26, and 4:00 am to 12:00 am on April 30.
