The reason why the rich in Ho Chi Minh City move to the outskirts of the city

The upper class is tending to move from the downtown area to the neighboring districts of the city, forming a new wave of settlements.


In the past, when the land fund in the suburbs of Ho Chi Minh City had a lot of room and the price was “softer” than now, this area was the choice of settlement for the common people in society. Meanwhile, the inner-city area with expensive housing prices has become the “domain” of the rich. However, in the past few years, this reality has gradually changed.

While middle-income people have the goal of moving closer to the city center, the upper class in society is “upstream”, moving away from the inner city core to have a larger land bank, invest more in living space.

According to experts, the reason is that the inner city area is becoming increasingly secret with high population density, cramped infrastructure, increasingly narrow green space, polluted air… Core The center has many business advantages, however, choosing a place to live far from the center to have the advantages of area and green space while still being worthy of its position is currently the concern of the upper class.

For them, the house is not only a place of retreat but also the aesthetic taste, personality and owners enjoy the relaxed period with Family. At the same time, most of the rich have their own means of transportation and actively control their working time, so location is no longer an obstacle, especially when the traffic infrastructure is getting more and more complete.
