District 7 Overview

With a total area of about 3,600 hectares, District 7 is an important location for developing Ho Chi Minh City’s waterway transport. The East of District 7 is surrounded by the Saigon River, with specialized ports playing an essential role in transporting goods and services. The areas sharing District 7’s border are District 4, District 2, Nha Be District, District 8, Binh Chanh District, and Dong Nai Province.

With District 2, District 7 is often the preferred place for many expats to settle down in Ho Chi Minh. Despite being located away from the city center, District 7 plans to become one of the most developed districts, especially in the housing industry. In the future, District 7 will be a standard district where the citizens can enjoy the best economics, social welfare, and security. In particular, Tan Phong Ward in the Phu My Hung area has become a Korean town due to the increasing number of Koreans who have settled in this ward in the past 10 years.
