Arriving in Ho Chi Minh City for the first time is inevitably a culture shock. Everything here is different. It is a country which in no way resembles its Asian counterparts.

Expat in Ho Chi Minh - Discover the City Life


Ho Chi Minh’s population is more than 10 million. The traffic conditions are atypical and can be quite intimidating as more than 4 million motorbikes take the road each day.
The city’s electrical cable system is unique in the world. Saigon is fortunately still relatively crime free. It is a city full of contrasts, allying tradition with rapidly increasing modernism.

Consequently, it is no easy task to blend in, integrate and settle down within a limited amount of time. 

Our goal is to provide you with an authentic overview of the city and expatriate everyday life so that you may objectively review your choices and make decisions based on relevant and genuine up-dated information.

Welcome to Vietnam!
