InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Ho Chi Minh City

Hello to all Americans in Ho Chi Minh City! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Ho Chi Minh City? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Ho Chi Minh City 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: Ho Chi Minh City is a place of discovery. The financial center is a quickly growing city known for its blend of the old and the new, with skyscrapers and modern malls meeting templates, pagodas, traditional markets, and much more! With the affordable buses, taxis, and motorbike taxis as well as a first metro line scheduled to open in 2021, 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 one of the less central areas such as district 7, which are about a twenty-minute drive away from Ho Chi Minh City’s center.

Although Ho Chi Minh City 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 Ho Chi Minh City, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
