Settling-In

Finding what you need is the key to success!

Residing in Ho Chi Minh City requires a little effort and curiosity. For example, not all groceries can be found in one supermarket. That would be far too easy. The same scenario also applies for clothes, shoes, furniture, beauty products and the list goes on.

To happily live in Saigon, you will need to know all the ins and outs, the up-to-date spots and the "off the book addresses" in order to find just about everything: imported meats, exclusive cheese selections, a must have croissant or pastry, your child’s esteemed piano teacher, your church, your new group of friends, etc. 

This is exactly what Relocation Vietnam provides, a smoother transition and an easier integration into your new life in Ho Chi Minh City, from expat to expat, from friend to friend. 

We have created a comprehensive on-line guide “The Arrival Survival Bible” which you can easily start consulting today. This ultimate guide book uncovers all you need to know when living in Vietnam, particularly Saigon and its surroundings. We will reveal to you the major cultural dos and don’ts, our precious survival lists and tips, our best kept secrets, our top recommendations, our leading restaurant picks with our personal commentaries and much, much more. 

You will discover that living in Ho Chi Minh City is not so complicated after all!
