Apartments for Rent in Binh Thanh District
Unknown to many tourists, there’s more to Ho Chi Minh than the busy downtown. If you take a short ride off the hectic areas of District 1, you’ll reach the neighboring Binh Thanh District. Here, you’ll witness the best of both worlds—the life brought by the modernization of Vietnam and the vibrant culture of old Saigon. Squeezed between District 1 and District 2, Bin Thanh offers a bunch of cheap housing options, making it a go-to place for expats teaching at international schools.
Attractions in Bin Thanh may not be as popular as the sights in District 1, but it surely offers tranquil places to spend your days off. Take an afternoon stroll at the Van Thanh Park for a quick reprieve from the bustling city life. For more one-with-nature experience, an oasis of foliage sticks out in the northern part of the district, offering a sight to behold of Saigon River. And if you hunger for a more palatable experience, Phan Van Han is a foodie’s haven, with a stretch of various food carts offering popular local cuisine.
