Hi, We are a family considering relocation from the UK to HCMC. We have children aged 4 and 7. I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on popular expat areas and british international schools. Also - is there a thriving expat community? With my husband working and the children at school, I'm a little worried I'll know what to do with myself!! Any advice gratefully received. Lorna

Distric 7, where has too much foreigners live here, is a good place to live.The environment in there is fresh and modern ...Moreover, you also can live in District 2.I think you should live in a apartment than live a house in vietnam.The security in apartment is absolutely and it has conveniences right there.Example : pool, kindergerden, spa ....There are so much international school near there.It takes few minutes from there to District 1 - center of HCMC. To get more informations, please contact me , i will help you chose a suitable place to live. my facebook : https://www.facebook.com/FuGi.TriDoan my email : tridnx.bds@gmail.com

Hi all, Specifically I'm moving here from SoCal where I pay $1650/month for rent and spend about $800-$1000/month on everyday needs (food, clothes, electronics) I got a job offer in SG near distrct 1 for about 30,000,000 VND / month (about 14-1500USD/month) I think after taxes its about 26,000,000VND/month I want to maintain a slightly above average lifestyle. I'm not looking to buy cars and sport the latest gadgets. The company is covering my gym, lunches, money to learn new languages. I like to live close to work, use the gyms and eat. I don't drink. I need dishwasher and laundry in-unit. So my question is, based off my brief description, will I be able to live comfortably? Or how frugal will I be living with this alloted salary?
VascoDoan replied on October 30, 2014 with:
If you get the job with the salary is 26.000.000 VND (1250$/m), you would chose a apartment about 550 - 650$ Bình Th?nh district.it takes 5- 10 minutes from Bình Th?nh to district 1. please contact to me if you have a difficult problem in finding the place to live. I am so enthusiasm in helping VNmese expatriates and foreigners.Please ask me any question, i will answer for you if i know. email : tridnx.bds@gmail.com skype : xuantri_tgbds I am Xuan Tri - Vasco ?oàn, 1992.

ralphnhatrang replied to the thread Marriage ceremony and family presence requirement on the Vietnam forum on October 26, 2014:
chive69 initially posted:
Hello, this question is for locals, from the south especially. I have a girlfriend in Da Nang, and we love each other and have thoughts about marriage, but she said that in order to marry, my Mom, and at least other 2 members of my family, have to be present and participate in some aspects of the ceremony. However, my Mom's health is fragile (she could not take the twenty something hour trip to VN and deal with a different altitude and climate and food and jet lag without her health being affected) so she cannot attend. My girlfriend says that, because of that, her family will never let her marry me, and therefore, our fate is sealed...is that true? I there any way around it? We both want to stay in VN and I'm aware that marriage ceremony traditions vary among the different regions. Thanks

MarkinNam replied to the thread Booking one way ticket to Vietnam on a tourist visa? on the Vietnam forum on October 23, 2014:
filausophy initially posted:
I have a curious question on my intention of trying my luck in finding a teaching job in Vietnam, initially on a Tourist Visa, but do not plan to buy a return ticket since I will assume i'll find work quite easily and just do visa extensions within the country. I am coming from Australia direct to HCMC and I know most airlines require a return ticket, where in fact I would not know exactly when I would return home. How would I go about this?
MarkinNam replied on October 23, 2014 with:
pretty sure you need return ticket booked plus show place of residence in VN must be hotel, how many days doesn't matter. let me know what you do with the return ticket, some times you can extend , how many time I don't know.
filausophy replied on October 20, 2014 with:
Thank you:) I think I am quite happy with the response and feel somewhat assured that a one way ticket won't be questioned entering Vietnam especially if I am armed with a tourist visa on my passport. Unless certain airlines want to be pains in the a**, but worst comes to worst I'll just have to book a cheap ongoing flight elsewhere on the spot(which I hope won't happen) Appreciate the help!:D
