Thao Dien - A quieter heaven of Saigon

Formerly a backwater peninsula, today’s Thao Dien is the definition of Saigon’s fast rising affluence. Lying northeast of the city’s centre, Thao Dien has grown to become a gentrified quasi-oasis for cultural diversity, short-time retreat, and not without the city’s signature paradoxes.

Define the city of Saigon however you wish, it will evade your perception gloriously: exclusive multiculturality; smalling shelters filled with expanding hopes and dreams; immense sunbathed flatness up-nailed by breathtaking skyscrapers along beautiful meanders; motional and visual paradoxes skirting near-perfect harmony anytime, just like its world-famous traffic.

The city has never been this gorgeous. Come to this picture Amanaki Thao Dien: upon this land, we establish a concrete (literally and metaphorically) hill of hope, embracing a trove of quieter, calmer stories of Saigon for its visitors.

Concierge Recommendations

Starting to explore Saigon from Thao Dien can be a pleasant surprise: you start quiet, admit chaos, and return quiet.

Amidst such chaos, people on vehicles are fluctuating like musical notes within and out of the boundless, winding staves - the dazzling streets and smaller alleys - in what appears little less than non-stop, meticulously orchestrated soundscape soaked in colours. To quote Rebecca Solnit, the city then “always contains more than any inhabitant can know, and a great city always makes the unknown and the possible spurs to the imagination.”

We make sure that you can make the most of your stay in Saigon, with memories to keep and stories to tell to others.
