What do I need to know before moving to Phan Thiet?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Phan Thiet, they said:

"Try to find an expat with experience and ask advice and assistance. One can not prepare himself for what he, or she, will find when you arrive in Vietnam. Knowing the right people, especially if you come here to conduct business, is very important! Vietnam is not waiting for expats to come and live here. 1 wrong gesture can break your dream without you realizing it; until you run out of cash," explained one expat.
