1st, about the apartment:
It's a 4BRs apartment, area 157 m2: 2BRs have private toilet bath, 2BRs using common bathroom.
The attractive point of this apartment is: it views directly to Saigon river,
with very beautiful view, and lots of winds (I personally don't use aircon).
I live in one bedroom without river view and using common bathroom.

(fly back to their country) on Dec 3, 2016.
So at that time, there will be 3 rooms available:

Room B: has river view and private toilet bath;
Room C: no river view, has private toilet bath
The apartment is on 20th floor of Hoang Anh River View, 37 Nguyen Van Huong, Thao Dien, D2.

Around 30% people live here are foreigners.
