Ho Chi Minh City is home to many art galleries which host the most talented local artists. However, for copies of famous pieces of art or for original paintings by lesser known artists, visit the “painting street”. Like shoes, there are not one but two streets that are chock-a-block full of painting shops! More locals shop at the painting stores in District 5 than the one in District 1, but you will surely find a great selection wherever you choose to go!
