District 7 Overview

District 7's landscape

With the total area of about 3,600 hectares, District 7 stands on an important location in terms of developing Ho Chi Minh City’s waterway transport. The East of District 7 is surrounded by the Saigon River with specialized ports playing an essential role in transporting goods and services. The areas sharing District 7’s border are District 4, District 2, Nha Be District, District 8, Binh Chanh District, and Dong Nai Province.

Together with District 2, District 7 is often the preferred place to settle down in Ho Chi Minh by many expats. Despite located away from the city center, District 7 has made plans to become one of the most developed districts, especially in the housing industry. In the future, District 7 would be a standard district where the citizens can enjoy the best economics, social welfare, and security. Particularly, Tan Phong Ward in the Phu My Hung area has become a Korean town due to an increasing number of Koreans settling in this ward in the recent 10 years.

How to Get to District 7

District 7 is about 14 kilometers from Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN), so it would take you around 60 minutes to get there. If you opt for taking taxis at the airport, it would cost you roughly VND 180,000 - VND 200,000. There are no shuttle buses that go directly from the airport to District 7. However, you can take a bus from the airport to the city center then take another bus route or a taxi to go to District 7.
