Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) Modern Apartment Tour + Helpful Tips!

I felt like there were a lack of these videos when I was apartment hunting so I made this to help out! This is a tour of my modern apartment in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam plus some tips on apartment hunting here.

For $700, I got a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom fully furnished place in District 2 with a gym and pool in the complex. Utilities are not included, but they end up being pretty cheap. The apartment complex is called Masteri Apartments.

**Important Fact**
Most locals refer to their city as Siagon instead of Ho Chi Minh. If you would like to learn more about that, please read the pinned comment below. I refer to the city in my video as Ho Chi Minh, because that is the official name that most foreigners know.

  1. Very beautiful condo. Also, allow me to share some fun facts about the city you're living in. Ho Chi Minh real name was Nguyen Sin Cung and Ho Chi Minh city was formerly known as Saigon city. Saigon was found and established by the general Nguyen Huu Canh in 1698. Saigon eventually became Vietnam's largest economic city. Before the Vietnam War, Nguyen Sinh Cung (later known as Ho Chi Minh) went to China to gain military support to invade Saigon. During his stays in China, Nguyen Sinh Cung adopted a Chinese name – Ho Chi Minh. Later when Ho's government succeeded taking over Saigon, they changed the city name to Ho Chi Minh city. To many Vietnamese people living in Vietnam and aboard, the name Ho Chi Minh reminds them of war, deaths, and pain. Many Vietnamese people still feel allergic to the name Ho Chi Minh. However, the name Saigon not only easier to memorize, but it's not sensitive as Ho Chi Minh city. Thanks.

  7. The Vietnam people fight against capitalism 45 years ago know this new generation like money 💵 so they actually enjoy become capitalism I don’t see communism no more in Vietnam 🇻🇳

  8. Thank you for your video Alison! You said it's buyer's market in rental market in October 2017. How about purchase an apartment? How much does a similar unit sell for? I am planning to visit Saigon in February 2018 and buy an apartment in District 2,4 or 7 for investment to hold and sell for a higher price in the future. Do you think it is a good plan? Do you know about the real estate market in Saigon?

  9. $700/mo. Wonder what a 1 bed costs at Masteri?
    That Honeycomb RE site has expensive units showing up!
    Also, the underlying deep anger over the city's name is not a good sign.
