3A STATION WAS DEMOLISHED IN MAY 2017 FOR A NEW COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT.

3A station is a little creative outpost located in French colonial era warehouses on the Saigon river, featuring galleries, cafes, boutiques, shops and some offices. Pop by to check out local art, fashion, and work by graffiti artists - or to hang out in one of the cafes. There’s a small artist-owned bar called Papillon too. 3A Station's modest in scale for a city of the size and creative energy of Saigon - but there’s some nice stuff and a good vibe. The absence of motorbikes and cars is a major bonus. Saigon is starved of public space - and the cultural space crisis is even more acute. But like most heritage spaces here, Saigon's insatiable wrecking ball will soon descend on 3A Station too. Gotta wonder where Saigon's fathers are getting there "how to build a great city" advice? Young Saigonese flock here on the weekends, selfie sticks in hand - while they can.  3A station also holds events from time to time.
