Housing in Ho Chi Minh City takes many forms, but it is not an exaggeration to say that apartments and condos make up the majority of people’s living experiences here. Everything from basic Vietnamese housing blocks, reminiscent of the American projects to extremely high standard superbly appointed condos; all are available throughout the city.

The majority of the city’s expats congregate around Districts 1, 2 and 7 and it is here that you will find some extremely upmarket apartments. The condo blocks generally come with swimming pools and shopping facilities. Increasingly they are incorporating shopping malls, cinemas and even ice skating rinks. They are going up fast, really fast; with some fifty tower blocks scheduled to be build in District 2 alone between 2015 and 2018.

The older, more Vietnamese style are normally recognised by smaller windows, though this is getting a bit blurred with even high class developments like the Lexington Residence, scheduled for completion in 2016, copying this trend. The Lexington is one of the new breed, with a huge shopping mall covering the five floors of a central block, with the swimming pool on the roof. This in turn is surrounded by four twenty-six storey towers, housing one thousand three hundred and ten, one, two and three bedroomed units.

Traditionally, District 7 has been seen as the place to be for upscale, high quality expat living. This looks certain to change as District 2 develops into a city within a city. The Phu My Hung area of District 7 is still, though, a great place to live and there are many apartments covering a range of prices. The proximity to the main business area of District 1, is the appeal here.

District 1 is still the place to which many people aspire. However, ever-spiralling land prices here mean that the development of high rise apartments has slowed in favour of retail developments. Many people living in the city centre, do so in shared houses, in the small hems (side streets) that fill every nook and cranny of this fascinating city.
