District 7 feels like an alternative universe compared to other districts of Saigon. The streets are wide, congestion hardly exists outside of rush hour traffic and the atmosphere is mostly free of the blaring horns of downtown Saigon. The district is home to a large population of Korean expats and is the place to go for great Korean food. Inside D7 is the satellite city of Phú Mỹ Hưng, which is characterised by tall apartment blocks and modern shops and restaurants. There are lots of Japanese and rich Vietnamese, too. You can find great local and international schools as well as the city’s best shopping malls here. Several peaceful parks are available in the district, and are great for picnics with friends and family. D7 is around 15 minutes from the city centre outside of peak hours, and relatively free of flooding.
