Thinking of accepting a job in Vietnam, but...

Post Posted: Sat Apr 15, 2006 1:49 pm

Hello,

I am thinking of accepting a job in Vietnam, Hanoi to be exact, but I want to do a bit of research first to find out how it is over there. I know for one that the cost of living is inexpensive, that's what I have been told. Are there any expats here that can shed some information about the country, cost of living, people, etc.

I would appreciate any feedbacks whatsoever!

THANKS so much in advance!

I LIVE IN VIETNAM AND MARRIED TO VIETNAMESE FOR 3YRS. IT IS VERY CHEAP COMPARED TO WESTERN COUNTRIES,BUT THE LOCALS ONLY EARN ABOUT $80 PER MONTH,IF YOU ARE ON EQUIVALENT TO WESTERN WAGES HERE YOU WILL BE FINE,BUT IF EARNING SAME AS LOCALS AND YOU DONT HAVE ANY SUBSTANTCIAL SAVINGS BEHIND YOU,THEN IT MAY BE DIFFICULT.
YOU WILL NEED WORK PERMITS FROM THE GOVT,ITS BEST TO GET THE COMPANY WHO IS EMPLOYING YOU TO DO THAT HERE,IT CAN TAKE SOME TIME.
