Condos in AC sold out befor the piling starts....resales snapped up...compare that to Jomtien with 50% lower resale prices than three years ago, about says it all....thats not to mention that a BK extra long chicken burger is 99 PHP..about 60 baht compared to 200 in Thailand...San Mig light in a bar at 18 baht compared to the mad prices in Thailand...clothes, dental work, opticians at a fraction of the cost here....oh....and easier visas available.

Sounds good - if you wan't to live in a condo. What about renting/buying a house outside the cities?

The service is fabulous in Vietnam in my experience, smiling faces , very welcoming, and they seem genuinely happy to have my business 

unlike Thailand.

i have no idea where u experienced bad service. Not saying it didn’t happen.

i regularly visit both countries and can tell you this.

poor infrastructure? Never seen flooded streets in Vietnam?????

s culture of quick profit??

thailand wins this by a country mile.

sounds like a response from yet another disgruntled Thai business owner!

Or someone who has never been to Thailand or Vietnam.

I think a really interesting thing here is that tourism used to be said to represent 7% of the economy which is sizeable. As the Chinese, etc ballooned arrivals I've heard 13%. The government has literally ignored tourism as an issue and I'm wondering when it's going to be damaged irreparably.

 

Another sector of the economy also related to outside funds is of course exports. Only until recently the government has been all but silent. Now, it pays lip service.

 

Both these industries employ poor, working class and middle class workers. The deplorables.

 

The government is literally ignoring 25% of it's economy of which I bet the majority of Thai are employed.

 

It's really africa-think

Yeah but still well worth it if you are staying there and the visa is relatively easy to get with no worry like Thailand is giving us.

As they not have nearly that numbers of tourists as Thailand. Wait a few years and we will see how easy it is to stay longtime in Vietnam.

You only look at this actual moment, but you can't be sure how it will change.

 

 

I was in Vietnam, and it is really cheaper than Thailand. But still not worth to change, as too many things are better in Thailand for myself. For others I can't speak out. And to tell the truth I don't care if others like Vietnam more or Thailand more, as this have to be a decision made by everybody themselve. Nobody really can't tell anybody which is the best country for them!
