District 3 is considered by many to be the ideal place to live in Ho Chi Minh City. As a common local expression goes, "Go out in District 1, eat in District 5, and live in District 3". The area's close proximity to the sights and activity of District 1 allows for expats to stay close to the action but also escape for more peaceful, quieter sleep. Many young expats opting to stay close to the bars, restaurants, and shops of District 1 choose to live in this area as it still offers a range of recreational activities and parks.
