Vietnam is a captivating paradise, filled with incredible contrasts in every corner. The country’s unique geography means this relatively small sliver of land sees intense equatorial conditions on the south coast, searing heat in the southern capital, and cooler misty conditions in the north. Similarly, Vietnam’s world-renowned food culture features a clash of influences from nearby Cambodia, China, Malaysia, and from their former French colonial rulers. The incredible natural diversity of Vietnam, combined with a very low cost of living, makes this Southeast Asian nation a magnet for digital nomads. Accommodation is cheap, and co-working spaces and communities are starting to build in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city in particular.
Home to one of Southeast Asia’s largest and fastest growing economies, Vietnam has witnessed rapid recovery since the days of the Vietnam War and has ramped up gains in the agriculture, transport, energy, and telecoms industries.
