I’ve been living here 2 years and still haven’t died so I had to get married to over come the visa issue 🤷🏼‍♂️ 
The roads aren’t anywhere near as bad as they’re made out to be. If you travel around with your head up your ass you will be risking your life every time you venture out. It just takes a bit of extra care and attention to play safe in traffic

Vietnam food is way better

This is why our choices are so personal to us..... I find VN food very much lacking compared to Thai and it’s a major factor in why I wouldn’t live in Vietnam

There are definitely fewer Westerners here now. Over the past few years, in my own experience, I have seen people leave--either moving to other countries or dying off.

 

Another metric that has been mentioned is there scarcity of Western goods that can be found in Thai supermarkets. Years ago, Tesco-Lotus had all sorts of things. Now, not so much.

 

yeah we can all blah blah about numbers but the markets know - they'll only restock what they sell so if the western products disappeared then the westerners _________ (fill in the blank!)

I think the reality is that Tesco can’t or doesn’t want to compete with Villa and Foodland for the foreign market.

Just got my 1 year visa over the internet and as per my previous 3 will only need to see immigration at the airport when traveling in or out of the country 

I don't know very much about Vietnam visas but could you provide more details? Business or tourist? Are you American? Do you need to leave the country every 90 days or not?

I not yet been to Vietnam but i am very confident that the visa proces all together will be much more pleasant there.

In fairness I once had a grilled swordfish steak that tasted good, but I imagine it was the limited ruination opportunity afforded by something that simple. I often wonder to myself when people post how good the Phils are : What do you eat?
