What do I need to know before moving to Ho Chi Minh City?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ho Chi Minh City, they said...

"Find a couple of real estate agents in the area and look at a lot of apartments before choosing. Consider whether you need to be close to a supermarket. Consider whether you'd like to be near a swimming pool. Consider your transport options: taxis, rent a scooter or is there a bus route close by?," remarked another expat who made the move to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

"Before moving to Ho Chi Minh City, expats should be aware of the city's tropical climate, with hot and humid weather year-round. It is important to be aware of the local customs and culture, as well as the language, as English is not widely spoken. Expats should also research the cost of living in the city, as it can be quite expensive. Additionally, expats should be aware of the traffic and transportation system, as it can be quite chaotic. Finally, expats should research the availability of healthcare and medical services in the city," explained one expat living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
