Similar to District 2, District 7 is chosen as a place to settle down and live by many expats. Though it is a little further out from the city center, District 7 is being touted as the future face of Ho Chi Minh City with the developments in housing and infrastructure taking place in the location.
This District caters strongly for the expat community with the ever growing availability of Western type foods available for purchase at the local stores and supermarkets. Coupled with the ever increasing amount of fast-food type restaurants, this is sometimes seen as a home-from-home for some people.
District 7 also offers an array of good quality restaurants, bars and shopping malls to make this an ideal place to settle down in Saigon.
