Vietnam is booming! Forget about the traditional real estate hotspots like Hong Kong and Singapore. Vietnam is becoming Asia’s latest property hotspot. In 2015, Vietnam opened up to foreign real estate investors, and it has become one of the hottest topics among the real estate community ever since. Currently, foreigners can purchase as many real estate units as they want, provided that they do not buy more than 30 percent of the units in each new residential project.

With a relatively strong economy (data released by the General Statistics Office of Vietnam estimated a 1.81 percent growth to Vietnam’s GDP in the first half of 2020. The numbers are promising as Vietnam is one of few countries that achieved positive growth during the pandemic) and an ambitious infrastructure plan.

For newbies, you may have heard of Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. But Vietnam is more than that. In this article, we’ll introduce 4 cities that you should pay attention to in 2021.


Hanoi is the country’s capital and the second-largest city. It is also the cultural and industrial centre. Life in Hanoi is very enchanting for those who love to explore Vietnamese history and culture. The city retains its Old Quarter, which features very distinctive Vietnamese architecture and tradition. Meanwhile, Hanoi is where embassies, start-ups, and NGOs locate, which increases the size of the rental market. The average price of apartments in Hanoi is estimated to be US$1,493 per sq. m. in Q2 2020. Despite rising prices, Hanoi’s luxury apartments seem like an attractive deal for wealthy investors from regions like Hong Kong and mainland China. Thanks to its strategic location, flying to Hanoi takes you less than 2 hours from Hong Kong and about 5 hours from Shanghai.

Ho Chi Minh City
