Ho Chi Minh City is the largest financial and economic center in the country. Two streets Nguyen Hue and Le Loi, up to this point are the two streets with the most expensive real estate in the city.

Such a high price is because the two routes Le Loi - Nguyen Hue are considered the center of the city. This is home to many cultural works of the city for more than 100 years and is the first choice for shopping, dining and entertainment activities of tourists.
With a central location in District 1, the New Year holidays in this area often welcome hundreds of thousands of visitors and have fun every day. In the near future, when the Ben Thanh - Suoi Tien Metro project comes into operation, it is predicted that the land in this area may increase even more.
