With a population of over 300,000, the coastal city of Phan Thiet, Vietnam offers beautiful beaches and bustling city streets. An expat in Phan Thiet said the best advice he received before moving to Phan Thiet was, "The only advice I've got was to forget everything and start from scratch. I did not realize that he meant really from scratch! In Vietnam, everything goes in another way than we are used to. I mean: everything!" Expats enjoy eating at Sandals Bar & Restaurant at the Mia beachfront resort and Breeze Restaurant.
