Thailand VS Vietnam? Which one will be better in 5yrs?

I spent 1/3 of the past few years in Thailand, 1/3 in Vietnam and the rest elsewhere.


Yes, Vietnam is behind Thailand for some conveniences - ie not many luxury condos (yet)


But they are investing and building fast.


BigC in Vietnam is almost 50% cheaper for the same items in company with Thailand. Wine and beer dirt cheap, food similar.


I don't like HCMC personally, but the north and central up to Hue / Danang / HoiAn are great.


Personally I prefer VN by a small margin, but this margin is just growing bigger. Just the no hustle visa, super friendly immigration make it worthy. It is becoming pain in the ass to stay in Thailand unless you want to waste 500k on elite visa.

How they manage to stay long term when the maximal period is 3 months? The cost for 3-4 border runs a year (if flights are used) may add considerably to the cost of living. Any other option available?
