Culture-rich Vietnam is quickly becoming a popular retirement destination for North Americans. And with its French colonial architecture, endless natural activities and incredible street food, what is not to love?
Affordable destinations for expats include the seaside town of Nha Trang and the bustling city of Da Nang, where around $1,000 can cover your living expenses for a month. There is a growing expat community in Nha Trang and expanding services for both westerners and locals. Da Nang is modern, international and welcoming, and its pleasant climate will allow you to enjoy the city. In the cities and tourist centers of Vietnam, English is widely spoken. But you will need some knowledge of Vietnamese to communicate in the small towns and rural areas.
