At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Vietnam and some of the social media accounts you should be following if you’re thinking of moving there.Expats in Vung Tau
With almost four thousand members, this group is a goldmine of information for any current or prospective expats to Vietnam. Limited advertising is permitted so questions and events are easier to ask about and see without fear of being lost in a group of this size. If you are looking for help learning the language, a rental property or just beginning to start the visa process, someone in the group will have likely done it before and will be happy to pass on their experiences.
Vietnam Expat Living
A closed group, which aims to act as a safe community hub for foreigners choosing to make Vietnam their expat home. Travellers and expats, new and old, are welcome and encouraged to share relevant information within the group. Over five thousand members strong and the group still maintains a friendly welcoming atmosphere, there is no question too small to be asked and answered here.
Expats in DaLat Vietnam
Current as well as prospective expats are welcome in this open group. When English speaking services are hard to find, groups like this one really come into their own, ask for a recommendation and you will likely get five. A great group for any expat settling into a new home in Vietnam.
