Sitting on the sidewalk to drink beer, looking to the street is the delight of many visitors.
Photo: A cafe on De Tham Street. Actually, it is not only a cafe but also a pub, a restaurant or a bar although it does not have a dance floor.
The restaurants and bars located at the corner always impress visitors and are preferred because of the broad vision and wide sidewalks. This is the Go2 Bar on the corner of De Tham - Bui Vien, which is quite famous in the “Pho Tay.”
This is Crazy Buffalo Bar, also located at the corner of De Tham - Bui Vien Street, with a superficially impressive and overwhelming outlook.
A lot of people in a small area. No problem, as long as it is fun and harmony in the life of the pavement.

A tourist office on Pham Ngu Lao Street. Although it's late, some visitors still come to book tours. It seems that the travel services here are available 24/7.
