Enticed by the colourful culture and convinced to stay by friendly locals, Vietnam is a great choice for experienced expats
Vietnam has always been an attractive destination for those eager to visit the famous Halong Bay and soak up its beauty on the emerald waters. The appeal of Vietnam has expanded greatly in the last few years and in particular, serial expats are setting their sights on the magnificent landscape, lively culture and positive work-life balance. This has seen Vietnam rank as one of the most popular choices for expats who already have experience living abroad.
Most expats moving to the country say they were able to quickly adjust to the way of life there, feeling at home within the first few months of arriving. This is largely due to Vietnamese communities being welcoming and encouraging expats to get involved with their impressive calendar of cultural events leading to many strong friendships being formed within a short amount of time.
Expats are also pleasantly surprised by the benefits of working in Vietnam. Many receive salary increases which, given the relatively low cost of living, provides them with far more spending power to enjoy everything the country has to offer. With improved work-life balance, it is no surprise that expats find more time to invest in making new friends.
