District 10 Overview

The land which is now named District 10 was a deserted place between two big cities in Southern Vietnam in the 19th century, Saigon (old name of Ho Chi Minh City's center) and Cho Lon. A myth about an area in District 10 bordering with District 3, Dan Chu Roundabout, maybe one of the reasons why few people chose to reside here. It was told that mass graves of many soldiers that had sacrificed in the uprising of Le Van Khoi, the son of Marshal Le Van Duyet, against Emperor Minh Mang, were found here, and thus the place is “cursed” and deserted. However, people from Central Vietnam and other parts of Vietnam had come to settle in the land because it was convenient to commute between the city center and suburban areas.

This district is now a place for busy trading activities for big and small businesses alike. The neighbor districts of District 10 are District 3, District 5, District 11, and Tan Binh District. With the total area of 10 square kilometers, District 10 is one part of the Chinatown or Cho Lon in Ho Chi Minh City and also has many attractions like contemporary historical attractions and religious sites, especially temples and pagodas, to visit.

How to Get to District 10

Because the distance to the center of District 10 is about 8 kilometer, from Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Tan Binh District, it would take about half an hour and VND 100,000 for a taxi ride. If you choose the yellow bus No. 119 at the airport, the time should be a bit longer and drop you at some stops in District 10 including those on Ly Thuong Kiet Street, Bac Hai Street, Thanh Thai Street, and Nguyen Tri Phuong Street. From District 1, going through District 3, the distance is shortened to 5 kilometers. You can reach District 10 in about 20 minutes.

Went through here on a food tour. Lots of options and very crowded. Great to see the more local side of Saigon.
