Take a walk on Saigon's shortest streets

Take a walk on Saigon's shortest streets

Tran Dang Dang Khoa, 29, was inspired after reading reports about short streets in Hanoi.
Khoa, who has been living in Saigon for 10 years, decided to start similar research to learn more about the city he now calls home. 
He spent nearly half a year checking books and news articles to find the shortest streets of Saigon, before taking these pictures.
 Do Van Suu, according to Khoa, is one of the shortest streets in the city measuring only 45 meters long. It is in District 5, at one end of the Cha Va Bridge. It is as long as the shortest street of Hanoi – Ho Hoan Kiem.
 Dinh Le of 56 meters in District 4 has one single address number, which belongs to Xom Chieu Market. 
Phu Dinh Street in District 5 spans 65 meters.
 Tran Doan Khanh of 70 meters is rather quiet for a downtown street.
 Nguyen Thiep in District 1 is 90 meters long. The street, which was named Carabelli by the French, is now frequented by tourists.
 Hung Long Street in District 10 is 92 meters.
 Huyen Quang of 94 meters also has a long history. Before 1955, it was called Génibrel, a French priest who translated Vietnam’s epic poem "The Tale of Kieu" into French.
 Nguyen Huu Than in front of Binh Tay Market in District 6 is 95 meters.
 Phan Van Dat of 103 meters in the city downtown.
 Ma Lo, 115 meters long, near Tan Dinh Market in District 1 is nearly a century old.
