1. Cheap living cost
Cost of Living is probably one of the main elements that anyone is looking at when thinking to move abroad. And the fact is that living and traveling in Vietnam is very affordable.
A good quality studio or one bedroom apartment anywhere here is between 200-350 dollars a month. More spacious and luxurious flats will cost you more. It's easy to find a hostel which cost only 10$ on Airbnb, Traveloka, etc.
You don’t need to find a very high paid job to survive in Vietnam. Food, accommodation, entertainment, gas and public transportation is so affordable that you will almost forget about such a thing as bills and payments.
There are even many free accommodations, free tour guides, free local hosts and so on that you can save your budget.

The great thing about Vietnam is the fact that you can find employment opportunities in small towns, as well as in large cities like Hanoi, where many people go to work in NGOs.

3. Light Visa Requirements
Vietnam is one of the most relaxed countries when it comes to visa procedure and stay allowance.
Visitors from most countries are allowed to live in Vietnam completing their visa runs every three months. Of course, if you are traveling in and out of the country on a regular basis, you should have proof that you are not illegally working here.
Other than that entering and leaving Vietnam is easy. We met people who applied for one year visa, paying a few hundred dollars, and are living in Vietnam now while working remotely.
5. Climate & Nature
Vietnam is not like most other countries in South East Asia where it always gets hot and sticky. Because of Vietnam’s stretching length and different climate zones you can comfortably live and travel within the country any time of the year.
