Residential Areas Information
Ho Chi Minh City is currently the best cities for expats, especially for international families to live.
For those who have 0-year experience in Vietnam, we recommend properties in District 1 and Binh Thanh District. For those who have more than 2-year experience familiar with the life in Vietnam, living in District 2 can be an enjoyable. There are also expats whose children are studying in the Saigon South International School, or the Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese School choose to live in district 7, although in the recent years’ traffic density in this area is becoming a problem.
If you need to find a place with convenient access to international schools for your children or your working place, please do not hesitate to give us your requests so that we can find suitable properties for you.
For those working in the central of District 1 and don’t have many time to travel from their living place to office. we recommend properties in District 1, nearby Binh Thanh District and District 3. Many apartment and serviced apartment with prices ranging from $ 400 to $5000 and from 30 Sqm to 200 Sqm. Sometimes, staying in CBD means that you need to stay with the noise because of the construction and traffic noise. With a large data of properties, we are confident that we can meet your tastes and budget.
District 2 is ‘Western Town’. Specially in Thao Dien area, there is a high population of European and American expats. Also, there are many restaurants, cafes and stores, which you cannot see in other districts. This area is surrounded by river and there are not many tall buildings constructed, so the air is very fresh. We also recommend this area for those who love the English speaking environment.
Are you looking for an area to experience a true Vietnamese lifestyle? In this area, there are many good quality properties at relatively low rent. Moreover, Binh Thanh District is located next to district 1, so if you have motorbike or bike, it is very convenient to commute from this area to the city center, rather than from District 3 or District 1. In District 3, the traffic jam is getting worse in some places, though this area is still considered the center, similar to District 1, by the local. Phu Nhuan District is located between the airport and the city center, so it is very suitable for those who frequently travel. Once in Vietnam, this is an area where you should try out.
In recent years, the traffic congestion in this area is getting worse. For the foreigners, the area near the airport is not as convenient as the central area. We recommend this area for those who frequently travel by air or for those who work near the airport
In recent years, Vietnam attract a lot of investment from foreigner countries to open factory or high tech industrial zone. The living cost is very reasonable but we recommend foreigner should not walk around this area at night. We recommend this area for those who work near the Industry Zone
