CHINATOWN OVERVIEW

The largest Chinatown in Vietnam is Cholon which is located in district 5 and 6 of Ho Chi Minh City. Cholon’s current status was the result of political developments during 18th and 19th centuries. Today, as modern buildings emerge in Cholon, the historical clan associations, temples and monasteries which have been served as markers of history, still reflect the relationship between the Chinese community and the state, continue playing their roles as centers of Chinese cultural activities.
