Looking for friends

Hey guys,
I moved to Saigon (district 3) a month ago and I feel very lonely. I came from Germany for a volunteering job in a school but I think it's very hard to find new people out here.
I'm looking for some nice people to meet, drinking a coffee or beer and having a great time. Maybe you have some tips for activities or whatever. I'm open for every helpful advice!
Or do you have any recommendations for good places to meet nice people?
Please help meeeee!
Thank you very much!!

Hi, also looking to meet some nice people for nice conversation over a coffee / beer. Pls leave comments here or text me when you guys are free / planning to meet at some point. Thanks.

Hey. I'm not in Saigon untill Tuesday but after that I'd like to do something

How long you will stay in HCMC?

For a year

if you haven't tried yet, check out meetup dot com.  you can find several meetup events around town that include foreigners/expats and locals.  another popular spot on saturdays only is the saigon soul pool party at the new world hotel in Q1.  Usually packed with foreigners/expats but locals also come.  They have a facebook page (google it!).

I would like to make some friends in HCMC and learn more about the Vietnamese culture. i'm sure we have alot to share.
