Named after a national hero and a world cultural celebrity, the street belongs to two districts 1 and 5. On the street belonging to District 5, there are only two hotels, which are Tay Nguyen and Thanh Ngoc.
Keep walking along the street, passengers can find a pagoda named Ba Thien Hau. The ancient pagoda was built by Chinese from Guangdong in 18th century so it has a Chinese featured architecture. Besides being a beauty spot, the pagoda also attracts visitors on Lunar July and August full moon days. Another architecture built by Chinese on the street is Nguyen Trai hospital. At first, Chinese built a pagoda in 1909 and then it became a hospital.
There are various Chinese food restaurants on the street such as Hai Ki noodle, Tan Hai Van sui cao, Dan Ich fish hot pot and vegetarian restaurants. Every Chinese food restaurant has a special feature, which is Chinese and Vietnamese signboard. It is a pity if someone visiting Cho Lon without enjoying Chinese food here.
