“Life in Vietnam is affordable and expats’ disposable income is more than enough to cover daily costs. People here are also happy with their career opportunities”, Business Insider said.

Integrating in Vietnam is easy and the locals are welcoming, a separate group of expats told HSBC earlier this year.

Every year, the InterNations expat network asks people from 187 countries and regions to rate various aspects of their home away from home, from the cost of living, to the quality of medical care, to the ease of making local friends. 

This year, the network interviewed more than 20,000 expats from around the world about their lives and weighed their responses to rank the top 30 countries in the world overall. Every country had a sample size of at least 40 respondents./.
