As the economic center of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City is unrecognizable from the small fishing village it once was. Major industries include finance, technology, construction and tourism. The city also hosts a growing number of universities, including international and English language institutions. With an expanding labor market, growing economy and foreign chambers of commerce to provide guidance, job searching in Ho Chi Minh City is encouraging. From the museums, theaters and botanical gardens to the zoos, underground tunnels and teeming shopping markets, your life in Ho Chi Minh City will never be dull. When searching for a property, it's advisable to seek the advice of a relocation service or excellent realtor to navigate the districts of the Ho Chi Minh City metropolitan area. When traveling around the city, motorbikes, buses and taxis are the most common methods, but plans for an underground rail service should ease the burdens on city roads in the future.
