Famous for its Binh Tay Market, Chinatown (Cho Lon) - District 5 is full of teahouses, pagodas, and restaurants. This neighborhood dates back to 1778 and is popular among many tourists, but especially those from China and Taiwan. It was here that Chinese people hid from Tay Son and, later during the Vietnam war, American soldiers traded for goods on black market. Aside from shopping and eating traditional food, you can visit several sites in the district including notable mosques and temples.
