InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Hanoi

Hello to all Americans in Hanoi! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Hanoi? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Hanoi which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Hanoi is a city that manages to combine ancient and colonial history with a modern new appearance. The Vietnamese capital is a very elegant city known for its Old Quarter, a growing arts scene, famous street food, busy local markets, and much more! With the extensive bus system as well as affordable taxi and motorbike taxi options, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in outer districts, which are less than an hour away from Hanoi’s center.

Although Hanoi has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Hanoi, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
