Living in Vietnam

Why you should consider moving to Vietnam

Southeast Asia has become one of the most popular places in the world to travel to and is now also an attractive place for expats, digital nomads and retirees who’s looking for a place in the sun. Although Vietnam is still not as crowded as Thailand, it is still very well-known amongst foreigners. If you’re also tempted by the idea of moving to Southeast Asia, here are some reasons why you should consider moving to Vietnam.

It’s safe

As with most of the Southeast Asian countries, it’s generally safe, although petty crimes might occur. But violent crime is extremely rare. Safety is always important and you wouldn’t want to move somewhere where you feel unsafe. So that’s why Vietnam is a great choice in terms of safety.

The expat scene is already big

When you’re moving to a new country, you’ll want to meet other people who’s in the same situation as you. We tend to seek out other foreigners because it’s easy to talk to someone who’s also moved, just as us. Luckily, the expat scene is huge in Vietnam and you’ll soon find yourself surrounded by people from all over the world who has also decided to take the leap and move to Vietnam.

The cost of living in low

Vietnam has always been known as a cheap destination and although the rising tourism has made prices go up a bit, it’s still considered a very low-budget country. You don’t have to earn heaps in order to live a good life here. The monthly cost ranges from 700-1,400 USD per month, depending on where you live, what you do and how much you choose to spend. Bear in mind that locals earn about 150 USD per month and they can live with that cost, so if you’re on a really tight budget, you can easily spend less than 700 USD per month.

The food is amazing

Who doesn’t love food? The food scene in Vietnam is incredible and diverse. If you’re tired of local food one day, you can find all kinds of international cuisine such as Indian, Japanese, Italian or why not Korean. What’s better is that since it’s cheap, you can eat out every day if you’d like to. There’s plenty of good local restaurants that will serve you world class cuisine and you only have to pay a couple of dollars for it. Pretty nice, right?

Vietnam is beautiful

Besides being cheap, having great food and being safe, what attracts people the most to Vietnam is the beauty of the country. You have everything here – lush mountains, tropical beaches, jungle, rice paddies as far as the eye can see and much, much more. If you live in Vietnam, you’ll be amongst this beauty every day and you’ll have access to so many attractions too. Living in Vietnam is fun, it’s exciting, it’s beautiful and it’s cheap. Tell me, who doesn’t love that?
