Highlights of District 3 – Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Recently, Time Out magazine voted that District 3 of Ho Chi Minh City was honored to be in the top 50 coolest neighborhoods in the world.


District 3’s achievement in earning this title stems from its unique combination of local culture and cosmopolitan flare. Visit District 3, a thriving but less touristy area where interesting new construction blends in with the area’s rich history and architectural legacy.


Let SILA Urban Living’s serviced apartment show you the highlights of District 3 in the article below.


A buzzing, exciting neighborhood

District 3 is a buzzing environment with dynamic business, trade, and service activities. District 3 is located in the heart of Saigon and is the intersecting and connecting point of many important streets in the city. Because of this, it is convenient to move to other districts and famous attractions. This district also has many small and medium-sized offices next to many local restaurants and cafes, which is also convenient if you wish to settle down and live here.


A sense of history

District 3 is home to many ancient architectural works. Many French colonial-era structures that are eye-grabbing and fascinating live here. You can see them in ancient villas on Tran Quoc Thao Street, Ba Huyen Thanh Quan Street, and Tu Xuong Street. Some buildings resemble the styles of Japan, India, and Germany.


This place still retains the excitement of a “sleepless city,” but it is not too noisy once the sun sets.



The greenest place in the city

District 3 covers an area of 4.92 km squared and is bordered by District 1, District 10, Phu Nhuan, and Tan Binh districts. The current population of District 3 is around 200,000 people, with a population density of 40,000 people/km2, which is not as crowded as District 1 and District 5. District 3 is also known for having the largest green area in Saigon. Big trees line numerous streets, a rare sight in the city.



One of the coolest neighborhoods in the world

District 3 is home to some of the most well known street food stands in the city. In addition, this neighborhood is well-known for its live music venues, which draw both adventurous travelers and trendy locals. Visit Nguyen Thuong Hien, also called “Snail Street,” for some of the tastiest seafood you have ever had. This well-known spot serves fresh snails and shellfish in a variety of dishes, such as soup and noodles.


Do not let the city’s ubiquitous electronic music fool you. Saigon was once a bona fide rock ’n’ roll town. Vestiges of that culture remain at bars like Yoko Café, a favorite of locals and expats alike, where local bands take the stage to play live rock, jazz, and more.


District 3 is indeed the most worth-living district in Saigon.


For these reasons and more, Time Out magazine voted this place to be in the top 50 cities in the world, where exciting new developments coexist with a sense of history.
