Vietnam ranks 14th among world’s best places for expats

(VOVWORLD) - Vietnam comes in 14th out of 53 destinations in the “Expat Insider 2023” survey by InterNations, considered the biggest online global expat community.

The country secured first place worldwide in the “Personal Finance” index category.  “What I love the most is the low cost of living and the friendly people here,” InterNations reported, citing an American expat.

Expats are also happy with the “Local Friendliness” and “Work and Leisure” indexes.  It makes it into the top 10 in the Local Friendliness Subcategory. 

Vietnam also performs quite well in the “Ease of Settling In” index. More than four in five expats (82%) describe its local residents as generally friendly, 15% more than the global average. This is probably one reason why expats consider it easy to make local friends. The majority of expats also feel welcome in Vietnam, according to the survey.
