Living and Working in Vietnam

Living and Working in Vietnam

From the delicious food to the the rich variety of crafts and cultural activities, Vietnam has a lot to explore.

Almost all foreigners find the tonal language very confusing – there are 6 tones for the 29 letters of the alphabet which first language English speakers tend to find difficult to adapt to. Take lessons and try to at least greet and order food in Vietnamese.

If you are vegetarian, the meaty diet can pose a challenge – you’ll need to learn how to order food without meat in Vietnamese and also keep your wits about you at restaurants. Sausage, for example, is sometimes considered a vegetable.

Travelling around Vietnam is also effortless and relatively comfortable. Vietnam has a very popular and refreshingly sophisticated rail network with hundreds of trains running up and down the length of the country, shuttling locals and visitors alike to cities and towns all along the way.


Sing Karoake!

Singing karaoke is a popular pastime in Vietnam and a great way to spend time with local people despite the language barrier.


Furniture in Vietnam

Furniture in Vietnam, especially in the North, is small and can be hard to use if you’re tall – and even if you’re not. Once you get the hang of folding yourself into a tiny plastic chair, it’s actually quite fun!
