What is it like to live in Vietnam? If you are considering living or visiting this country, then there are a few things that you should know. First of all, most people in the country speak Vietnamese and not English. The food is also very different from what we eat in North America. Let’s take a look at some interesting facts about living in Vietnam!

What is the average cost of living in Vietnam?

In the Vietnam capital of Hanoi, the current monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment is around $600. For ex-pats, this might seem like an affordable price to pay for housing in terms of US dollars. However, in USD, that equates to roughly 58 million Vietnamese dongs (VND). That means if you want to live in Hanoi, you’ll be paying approximately $600 x 24 = 17.28 million VND per year ($978).

In the Vietnam capital of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), the current monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment is around $900. In USD, that amounts to roughly 41 million Vietnamese dongs (VND). That means if you want to live in Saigon, you’ll be paying approximately $900 x 24 = 21.92 million VND per year ($1274)

Other expenses come with living in Vietnam, such as electricity, water, and gas bills. Depending on how much power your house uses or what type of water you use, your monthly bills can vary.

How do I find a place to live in Vietnam?

The first thing you need to do is research the different places that are available. Many websites, such as Airbnb or Expatistan, will help you find a place to live by location and price. These sites allow for reviews from locals and other ex-pats who have lived in these locations before, so it’s an excellent way to learn about the place you are considering.

The next step will be contacting the landlord or person who owns the property and discussing any questions that may come up before signing a contract. Be sure to get all terms in writing, including deposit amount, rent payment dates/times, etc., so there are no surprises down the line.

What are some things that I need to know about living in Vietnam?

Vietnam is a beautiful country with many diverse cultures. Some of the things you need to know about living in Vietnam are: -The language and alphabet, which consists primarily of Chinese characters known as “Han” (though there are some Arabic phonetic letters), but Vietnamese has its unique writing system called Chữ Nôm that was used until 18th century when it became largely obsolete-How different traditions might shape your day-to-day life like offering meals for Buddha before eating or setting out fruit and flowers on altars during special occasions -The culture and norms for socializing, such as how much to tip or the nature of business meetings.

There are several hobbies you can adopt while in Vietnam. If you’ve decided on some sports or games you’ll love to play, visit leisurehead.com. On our homepage you will find so many options like a Springfree trampoline; suffice it to say that they are considered to be the safest, which is a pretty big deal when it comes to buying trampolines.

What are some ways to save money while living in Vietnam?

  • Buy local foods, avoid luxury brands.
  • Avoid the use of air conditioning and fans to save money on electricity bills. This is best done during the summer months as it’s not necessary for heating or cooling during wintertime in Vietnam.
  • “Brown bag” lunch at home instead of eating out. Often there are cheaper yet healthier and tastier options available in local markets.
  • Walk or bike to work if possible, avoid car expenses such as gasoline and insurance that are unnecessary for people living in a country where there is no need for public transportation.
  • Buy used clothes from street vendors instead of the pricier items found at department stores.

What are some things to be aware of before living in Vietnam?

  • Avoid wearing jewelry that you hold dearly. It can easily get stolen. If your home is broken into or burglarized while you’re away, this will also increase the likelihood of theft.
  • Keep a low profile and don’t advertise what country you’re from.
  • Learn some Vietnamese to get around, as not many people speak English in Vietnam.
  • Become very cautious about the water and food you’re consuming when traveling abroad to a place like Vietnam, where hygiene standards are lower than what we have back home in North America.

 

 Tips for living and working abroad

Living or working abroad can be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about a culture different from your own and make the most of this experience. It’s essential, however, that you take some time in advance to prepare for these new surroundings, so they don’t come as such a shock. Here are some tips on how best to do just that:

  • Figure out what kind of living situation will suit you best before moving into one
  • get enough sleep each night by finding quiet places outside where it is dark if necessary;
  • limit caffeine consumption earlier in the day (or better yet, switch over all together);
  • eat high protein meals often with lots of vitamins and minerals; leafy greens like kale because our bodies need good fuel when adjusting to changes which we might not be used to;
  • cut down on or eliminate alcohol consumption which can dehydrate us and affect our moods.
  • Figure out what kind of work you’ll be doing (and prepare for that) in advance.
  • Learn about the culture before traveling there, so you don’t feel so lost when you arrive – it will also help with any struggles while living abroad.
  • Keep an open mind! When coming to a new country.

 

 In the end, I think this article has shown that while living in Vietnam can be an exciting and eye-opening experience for a foreigner who is unfamiliar with Vietnamese culture, there are many downsides to living here. It’s important not to romanticize or glorify life abroad because it’s different from what you may imagine. For me, my time as an ex-pat was short-lived but very rewarding and memorable. I would recommend traveling if you have the chance!
