Bookshops in Ho Chi Minh city

The best area to look for maps, books and stationery is along the north side of Le Loi street, between the Rex Hotel and Nam Ky Khoi Nghia street, in the Dong Khoi area. There are many small, privately run shops as well as the large government-run ones.

On De Tham street, around Pham Ngu Lao, there is a handful of shops dealing in used paperbacks and bootleg CDs. Here you can also swap books. Check out the following places.
