A Growing Economy, a Thriving Population
The country is an affordable and safe destination for tourists and expats alike. Vietnam is large enough to have several climate zones, ranging from zones with very hot/wet summers and very frigid winters in the north, to zones that are more temperate year-round.
Like many countries, the cost of accommodations depends on where you choose to live. Expats can live fairly cheaply, but many choose to be in prime areas of the city, which come with larger price tags, but also afford many modern conveniences and more safety as well.
The first McDonald's restaurant in Vietnam opened Feb. 8 2014 in Ho Chi Minh City. It served 400,000 customers in the first month of operation and not less than 22,500 during the first 24 hours of operation.
Due largely to the growing expat population, schools in Vietnam have gotten better and more plentiful over the last several years. With this growth also comes an increase in costs, but most feel that the increased fees are worth it for the international curriculum.
