The Son Tra District is located on the eastern side of the river from Hai Chau, making it a beautiful coastal area. Recent years have seen a flurry of development in this district, inviting a young and hip crowd to new cafes and bars. The area has a long coast of beautiful, pristine beaches, mostly without waves. Housing here will be in villas and should be cheaper than in the main business district, although recent popularity has pushed prices upwards. Expect some tourists in this area, but a more authentic feel of the city and local culture. The An Hai Bac ward of this district, located just across the river from Hai Chau I is a popular and exclusive area filled with professionals.
