Cholon district is the largest Chinatown in Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City also has a Chinatown. There is a Chinatown in every big city in Southeast Asia.
When I entered the square where I found while walking in Cholon, children were playing on the wall. Beside them, a peddler wearing a conical hat called Nón lá was resting. She was carrying a large plastic tub and seemed to be peddling cold drinks. The four of them were very close to each other, but they didn't seem to be interested in each other.
Looking at these four people, it's hard to tell that I was in Chinatown. Maybe that's because the conical hats are so typical Vietnamese that they take away from the Chinatown look.
