Tran Hung Dao Street

POINTS OF INTEREST

Tran Hung Dao Street

Once called rue Gambetta, Tran Hung Dao Street is now named after the revered Vietnamese warrior who repulsed Kublai Khan's Mongol hordes three times between 1257 and 1288. This long, tree-lined boulevard is the southern border of the French Quarter and a marked example of the stateliness with which the French imbued these east–west streets. Several diplomatic missions line the boulevard; among them, fittingly, is the massive French embassy (No. 57), which takes up an entire city block.
