There is also still a Soviet style here which is most obvious in local apartment buildings and companies which look quite ugly and old.
Besides that, there are hundreds of cute houses and beautiful villas around the city, some of which follow the French style and some just a very simple style.
As you can see from my pictures, some houses are almost falling over because the government built new roads. I think it's quite impressive that people still live in these houses, ignoring the dangers waiting for them at any moment. Do you think it's worth it to risk your life like that?
I do agree that the expression "Land is gold" is right for Ho Chi Minh City, where the tiniest space is used for doing business. It's also the reason why there are so many narrow tall buildings in this city. I hope this satisfies my readers who wanted a comparison of the Architecture In Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city.
In my opinion, both are beautiful even though there are distinct differences.
