Exotic property in Ho Chi Minh

Ho Chi Minh is always the favourite city of many tourists. Aside from being the capital of Vietnam, the city's role in the history of the country is undeniable. Tourists can easily walk to various locations with historical significance to learn more about its ancient history and the Vietnam War.

But aside from history, the country is also popular because of its rich culture. The religious sites such as the Quan Am Pagoda and the Phung Son Tu Pagoda are found in the city. Chinese temples also abound in Ho Chi Minh and the Notre Dame Cathedral stands tall in the middle of the city.

For tourists who are looking for nature-related activities, the historic Saigon River should never be missed. The river is actually one of the "secrets" of Ho Chi Minh because people can actually swim in this beautiful river. There are also a variety of water parks in the city and most notably is the Dam Sen Water Park. Tourists who wanted to stay in the city for investment purposes can seek to lease an area in the city. Although purchasing a property is not allowed, tourists should be able to enter a "long term lease" plan. Foreigners should be able to rent the area for 50 years. This will give them enough time to develop the area and establish business.
Ho Chi Minh is a very exotic city that will surely entertain anyone who visits the city for the first time. Its history, culture and natural beauty will definitely draw more tourists in the future.

Reasons to invest in Wellington

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand. Aside from being the country’s political center, the city is also the country's center for arts and culture. A highly developed city, Wellington is often visited by tourists because of its remarkable natural surroundings.
The current landmass of the city has significantly expanded since mid 1800s because of reclamation. Signs have been put up near the coast of the city to signify the start of the reclamation area. Reclamation started in Wellington after the 1855 earthquake.

The natural beauty of the city is based on its beaches and mountains. The Wellington Harbor is home of various parks and small beaches. The southern end of the city boasts of sporadic, small beaches that provides a bit of privacy because of its size. The western end of the city features hills with impressive views of the city and the beach.

As the capital of New Zealand, finding Wellington and going around the city is very easy. The Wellington International Airport is just 5 kilometers. Tourists can go around the city through bus, train or even by foot. The waterfront is a long stretch but can be a relaxing and learning experience for tourists.

Surprisingly, real estate in Wellington is not very aggressive. Experts agree that real estate prices are not expensive compared to other major cities around the world. However, investors are encouraged to grab a property as soon as possible before the price hits the lowest point. Tourists should be able to find rent-to-own properties in Wellington or simply lease to know more about the property before entering into actual business transaction.
