The classic choice for dating - cinemas! Galaxy Cinema, Lotte Cinema or CGV with their ubiquitous locations are the most popular cinemas where local couples meet in Saigon. Among cinemas across Saigon, Galaxy Nguyen Du (Nguyen Du, District 1) is probably the most well-known thanks to its spaciousness and sophisticated design. In many cinemas, you can opt for the couple seats providing more privacy and intimacy. CGV Liberty Citypoint (Pasteur, District 1) offering viewing rooms with all couple seats can be perfect for a date night.
Parks in Saigon are quiet, peaceful, private and thus, ideal for dating. The most popular parks where local couples meet in Saigon are Tao Dan Park, September 23rd Park, Le Thi Rieng Park, among other public parks.

Ca Phe Bet (sit-down coffee) is a ‘specialty’ of Saigon, offered by coffee vendors in April 30th Park (or Thong Nhat Park), which is surrounded by so many landmarks of the city, including Independence Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral, Saigon Central Post Office and Nguyen Van Binh Book street. Sipping coffee while engaging in deep conversations with your loved one, that’s perfect for a date.

Exquisite bridges for pedestrians only like Anh Sao Bridge (Starlight Bridge) over Ho Ban Nguyet (Crescent Lake) in District 7 are meant for dates. Besides, Thu Thiem Bridge over Saigon River or Cau Mong Bridge is also popular, although Cau Mong Bridge is currently interrupted by works. Like Turtle Lake, these bridges are replete with street food vendors.

It’s almost impossible to find someone in Saigon who doesn’t know about this massive landmark. Nguyen Hue pedestrian street is where local couples meet in Saigon if they want a place with dynamic activity, grand sights of buildings and a leisure walk by Saigon River.
Just a stone’s throw from Nguyen Hue walking street is Bach Dang Wharf. This is where the first river bus station in Saigon and a breezy park to enjoy a spectacular view of Saigon River are located. Simply stroll along the riverside and extend your walk a little to streets in the city center like Dong Khoi to enjoy dinner in many fine restaurants.
