In this video I visit Lương Như Học Street in Ho Chi Minh City's District 5 for their annual Lantern Street for Mid Autumn Festival In Vietnam. This is a great way to take part in the festival as most of this 4000 year-old celebration is centered around the family gathering. District 5 is one of my favorite places to wander in Saigon. It's filled with alleys full of character and heritage. Old Chinese style shophouses, colonial and art deco architecture along with modern Vietnamese architecture of the 19 1960's can all be admired here along with some of the busiest wholesale markets in Ho Chi Minh City. Lương Như Học Street is in the heart of District 5, I'll leave a Google Maps link below. The lantern street starts about 2 weeks prior to the Mid-Autumn Festival, 15th day of the 8th month of the Lunar Calendar every year.
