Niveau de vie et déplacements dans les métropoles vietnamiennes : Hô Chi Minh ville et Hanoi

Abstract : Living standards and moves in the Vietnamese metropolises: Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi - In the current “metropolisation” process in the large Vietnamese cities, a sliding of the population from centre towards suburbs and a “gentrification” of the city-centre appear. While living environment is generally improved for these intra-urban migrants, the distances to be covered (for example from home to work or from home to school) increase considerably. The lack of infrastructures is also desperately felt in the recently built peripheral zones. The role of living standards, measured by a “wealth index”, is emphasized. Contrary to the initial expectation, there are rather “rich people” which have the longest routes to be gone through, what is enabled by their better transportation means. The fight against disparities in the city still inevitably arises the question of the development of public transportation means.
