Thao Dien Directory


Thao Dien, D2 is among the most foreigners concentration in Ho Chi Minh city, together with Phu My Hung in D7, Pham Ngu Lao area in D1.

Thao Dien is around 10km from Ben Thanh market, 14km from Tan Son Nhat International airport, 17km from Phu My Hung in D7.

To get to Thao Dien from D1, you can either ride bus no 53 or 56 or 35.

I’ve lived and been to different places of HCMc but at Thao Dien I feel home the most.
Currently I live in an unique spot in my opinion.

Ngoc My hotel is an old hotel, has not being renovated. The owner doesn’t do marketing so it doesn’t attract lots of guests.

The hotel has 5 floors: 1st floor is reception area, a dining space hasn’t been used for long time, parking space and an extended area which the whole owner family live.

The hotel has one security guy and one receptionist guy. They are cum cleaner, electrician and any task.

2nd, 3rd floors are for short term guests (renting daily). 4th, 5th floors are for monthly paying guests. For monthly paying guests, the owner accept Vietnamese only. Since it’s a hotel, none of guest are allowed to cook here. But I do steam & blend so it’s fine.

The room which I’m living has a window, a back door and a balcony. It views directly to Bitexco Financial Tower. Moreover, it views directly Sport Centre of District 2, so everyday I see people exercising. Early morning senior people practice Taichi and dancing using rod or conical hats. They finish by 6:30am. Later in the day: young people play basket ball, sometime kindergarten kids play with their teacher here. In the evening, normally a taekwondo class.

Daily rental of a room here is just 200,000 – 300,000 VND (10-15 USD). Opposite to the hotel is office of Animal Health Doctor.

Here I have few options to buy food. If walking distance I can go to Thao Dien market or VinMart Megamall. Thao Dien market works mostly morning time. I prefer this market because I can buy red rice with small quantity here. For other stuffs, if I want hassle-free and less time of asking price, negotiating, I go to supermarket. In Thao Dien you also can buy food in Coop Mart, An Phu supermarket, Aeon Mart and there’s a small market along Quoc Huong street.


Family Garden is a wonderful spot locate at no. 28 Thao Dien.

It’s a combination between nature (water, tree, garden) with office, coffee shop, restaurant. There are also products from the garden which you can harvest with price of 40,000VND/kg. The rent for a picnic activity here is 100,000 VND/person for 8 hours which you can bring food from outside. If you want to order food from them as a buffet party, minimum is 15-20 people and price is 500,000 VND/person


Thao Dien soccer field on the afternoon of Jan 30 was divided into 3 small fields.
The first 2 fields were football matches for the boys, and the last field was training football with coaches for both boy & girl.


There is a big community of expats live in Thao Dien, District 2, Ho Chi Minh city.
So updates about things happen in this area will be helpful.

1. Thao Dien now has its own gasoline station at no. 53, Song Hanh street
(parallel with Xa Lo Ha Noi), previously, people have to go to nearest gasoline station at Tran Nao to recharge their bike, car.

Name of this gasoline station is: “Trạm Xăng dầu Hiếu Phương 3”,
means “Hiếu Phương 3 Gasoline & Oil Station”


VinMart supermarket inside Megamall Thao Dien is one of my favorite spot to go to buy food. 1st, it’s walking distance from my place.

Peanut is my guilty pleasure, so I usually look for nuts & bean section.


Your new feelings in Ho Chi Minh city which you would be experience:

+ hot & humidity

+ lots of motorbike

+ people wearing masks

+ things aren’t organize like in your home country

+ when visiting Vietnamese here, you may experience using chopsticks or sitting on floor.

Note: all informations in this post: address, phone no, email are being listed in front of the businesses, mean anyone pass by can see the info. So I am not listing contact info which aren’t for commercial purpose of the owner.

Since I bought many things with small quantities, like one carrot, one gourd, one bitter melon, one cabbage, one corn, two limes, … so I asked the packer to pack everything in one plastic bag, so it would save plastic bag. So there are lots of plastic bags, then when I went to cashier, the cashier said it’s hard for him to scan the price. And he asked to call the packer. I told him to not blame packer, blame me, since I was the one who asked to do that. Then the cashier said: it’s fine to pack in one pack, but make the tags queue up to one line, it would be easier to scan. So, I take it as an experience, next time I will ask the packer to queue up the tags.

Market: There are few food vendors standing on the street. Many of them don’t list the price and may not speak English. Normally, when you buy, you give the money, and they give you the change. You may experience sometime seeing sellers listed price really attractive, like 15000/ 1 kg avocado. But sometimes, they write “/2” very small which is hard to recognize at first. So actually it’s 15000 for 1/2kg avocado. Or the avocado of 15000/kg is very few and not in good condition.

People of Thao Dien:

Family of Gaetane Brod & Hung (Franco – Vietnamese) at 46/1 Do Quang street.
Gaetane met a Vietnamese (hometown: Chau Doc, An Giang) when she was 10 years old in her town in France. And this Vietnamese impressed her a lot. Since she was a child, she has been wished to go to Vietnam. And now, she has been living in Vietnam for more than 7 years. She can speak Vietnamese. She met Hung (her husband) in Hai Duong, where she was teaching French, and he was the leader of French speaking club (although at that time he didn’t speak French at all). Hung was original a ping pong coach and lived in France for 6 years. They now have cute son, and has a tourism business. They also provide bike for rent for expats.

I met this family when I went with Rachel to visit the house (to find a room for rent). Gaetane was very enthusiasm to introduce to us every info about the room, the house and the place. Rachel was suddenly get tired and took a rest on sofa in the living room there. Gaetane and Hung guessed that she got hypoglycemia and find some medicine to give her. They (Gaetane and Hung) offered us some bread. Hung even helped Rachel to repair her laptop and brought her back to her hotel at Bui Vien, District 1. Our visit consumed lots of their time, their lunch was delayed but they just tried to find a way to help. Not everyone do like them. I’m so grateful that I’ve met this wonderful family and listened to Gaetane’s wonderful story.

They are owner of FVtourist
