The Chinatown here is too broken. The Vietnamese Chinese were deprived of their property after 1975. I ran into an aunt who bought a pie at the temple. She made delicious pie. The aunt’s ancestral home is an old man from Nanhai, Foshan Auntie, a second-generation Chinese aunt who can speak Cantonese and Mandarin. She said that when she was young, she worked in Taiwan for four years. She said that Foshan, Mainland China, has heard that it is developing very well and is very beautiful. She would like to go back to Nanhai, Foshan, Guangdong to take a look. But she works part-time, and she needs more than 1,000 dollars to go back. She has no money to go back. Very sad after listening! The embankment (Cholon) is located a few kilometers southwest of Pham Ngu Lao Street. Similar to Chinatown, there are many old houses.
The embankment is the largest Chinese community in Vietnam. Many Chinese are here, and there are many buildings with period characteristics. Many movies have come here for shooting. If you have time, you can come and take a look, take a good taste
Large community, suitable for walking. But I am afraid it is not suitable for children, because the sidewalk is not very good, or is often blocked, because people often park their mopeds there, so they can only walk on the road. It is a very busy and old community. Old building. Real city conditions. Lots of great photo opportunities. Bustling markets and mom-and-pop shops. Pass by a modern shopping mall called the Garden Shopping Center. There are also temples located here.
For me, who lives in Guangdong, walking into the embankment is like returning home, because Cantonese is unimpeded here. Before arriving at the embankment, my first impression of this place came from movies such as "The True Colors of Heroes 3" starring Anita Mui, "Lover" starring Leung Ka Fai, "To the Wrath Sea" directed by Xu Anhua and "The Story of Hu Yue". When I came to the embankment, I found that this place is completely a Chinese community. There are many stories waiting to be discovered here, but I have nowhere to go. This is the largest Chinese settlement in Vietnam, and it still retains the traditional Chinese way of life. However, these traditional lifestyles have long since declined in China. The street scene of Embankment looks like a small city in Guangdong in the 1980s. There is a Catholic church with a combination of Chinese and Western architectural styles. It is said that there is a basement here, where Wu Tingyan, the president of the South Vietnamese regime during the Vietnam War, committed suicide after being overthrown by his subordinates.
The embankment is also a very interesting place. It is also a very good place in Ho Chi Minh. It looks very good. You can also see the very good buildings in Hanoi.
