Lying in the heart of the city, the district is well-known and boasts several famous tourism hotspots.

The district is described as "a buzzing but less well-trodden neighborhood where exciting new developments coexist with a sense of history”.  Visitors will find colonial-era churches and villas alongside Buddhist pagodas such as Vinh Nghiem and Chantarangsay pagoda of the Khmer people and Tan Dinh Church, commonly known as the “pink church” and arguably one of the most Instagrammed places in the city thanks to its vivid colors and unique architectural features.

Visitors are also directed to one of the most popular hangouts for young people – a circular pond at the intersection of Pham Ngoc Thach and Vo Van Tan streets that locals call Turtle Lake.

Local authorities have intensified measures to beautify the district in order to make the city a more popular destination for tourists from both home and aboard./.
