While Ho Chi Minh City may not be the most nature-friendly city in its region, it certainly caters to sports fans. Expats relocating to Saigon will have the opportunity to participate in plenty of hiking opportunities, join a sports team and make new friends if theyre interested.

As Ho Chi Minh City continues to gain a reputation as a hub for engineering and telecommunications, more and more international students are looking at it as an attractive place to further their studies. While there are plenty of options for international students regarding accommodation, leisure and sports activities, it can be a bit daunting for young students to move to a new country without knowledge of the language. Here are a few tidbits for people coming to Ho Chi Minh City to study.

One major benefit to living and working in Ho Chi Minh City is that its an ideal spot if youre a foodie. Often overlooked by neighbouring food hotspots like Singapore and Bangkok, Saigons restaurant scene is one of Southeast Asias best-kept secrets. While it is known internationally primarily for its street food scene, Ho Chi Minh City is jam-packed full of interesting cuisines and unique restaurants that showcase this notion. Here's a roundup of the best restaurants Ho Chi Minh City has to offer.

Moving to a new city and country can be a daunting and overwhelming challenge. Pair this with adapting to an entirely foreign business and cultural environment, and it can feel downright gruelling. Although there are plenty of networking opportunities for expats relocating to Ho Chi Minh City, they may find themselves wondering how to carry themselves in professional networking situations.
