    Ho Chi Minh is currently the second fastest-growing city in the world (after Bangalore) and attracts more and more foreign investors. In comparison to Bangalore, foreigners are at least allowed to own properties in Ho Chi Minh City.

    The city is a melting pot, still, the real estate market is not as mature as Thailand’s, for example, which has resulted in a more narrow selection of agencies.
