"District 5" Chinatown Tip by Audia

Chinatown, Ho Chi Minh City: 34 reviews and 41 photos


District 5 of HCMC is known as the Chinatown. I didn't explore through it though, just around Windsor Plaza Hotel, An Duong Plaza, and small restaurants along the road. If you prefer to walk around Chinatown, please make sure you are traveling in a minimum group of three since District 5 is not as safe as District 1.

There is a temple in the area called Thien Hau, but I didn't get a chance to visit it.

Address: District 5
