First off, I'm sorry if this seems rude, I know that 3K is a lot of money in Vietnam. I'm not trying to brag or be a jerk. I'm still choosing which country to live in and I'm just looking for information so I can make the best choice for myself.
I'm wondering about what kind of lifestyle 3K usd/month (68M vnd/mo) would get me in HCMC. 3K would be my entire budget for a single person: housing, transportation, entertainment, Vietnamese language lessons etc. I don't usually have expensive tastes , and I'm not looking to spend money just for the sake of spending money, but I do like to go on dates (true romantic here) and I'm interested in the occasional vacation so I can see more of Vietnam and SE Asia. If you could give me an estimation of what to expect from my budget I'd appreciate it.
Thanks everyone! And I've greatly enjoyed reading all the posts on this site, everyone is so helpful in this community
