  3. Even in the most affordable parts of america, the cost of living is so much more expensive than vietnam. I am more and more interested in spending time in vietnam for a few months. I need some adventure and a change of scenery lol

  4. To live in India you need atleast $500/month. It's cheaper here, but the apartments won't be that great in the price. In a better accomodation it can go about $700/month

  5. I make $4000,00 CAD per month in Canada and all of it is gone on just mortgage and bills, gas, and food. I can't save anything. I've been doing this for 20 years already with no end in sight.

  6. Hi! Van, Recently started watching your videos and enjoying 'em. I have a question for you If you don't mind.
    How are you able to speak English (in American accent) so fluently given that you lived in the US for only about 7 years?!

  7. Thanks for the well explained info.. very clear and concise!
    Wow what a bargain it is there.. I live in Hawaii and for $650 you won’t get very far😳.. just for housing alone typical rents are $1500-$2500 a month or more.. A simple trip to the grocery store with one or two bags of groceries can easily be $150 – $200 dollars..
    And for transportation you pretty much have to own a car which is pretty expensive with insurance upkeep and gasoline.. and there are so many other expenses as well.. it all adds up to about three to $4000 a month for basically no frills!
    Hanoi here I come😊

  8. Living in Scotland for one person you're looking at about $2000 – $2250 per month for reasonable comfort. These numbers you have are amazing, I'm tempted to move there and live like a king!

  9. Here in London, you need to be making at the very least 55k-60k per year (dollars) to have a basic standard of living (including rent). It's insane. Otherwise, you can flat-share or stay with your parents and it will be cheaper.

    Edit: You have such a nice accent, even though I'm a native speaker, I wish i could speak like you. It's so clear and confident.😁 If you have any recommendations on how to speak like that, do let me know (or make a video if you like).

  10. Although west lake is a beautiful area, that's really expensive. for the local economy.My monthly rent is less than that (with one paying roommate) but we live in a house in one if the best neighborhoods near the port if Milwaukee, about 130km north of Chicago

  11. Vietnam is a communist country. Wage and salary in Vietnam are very dissimilar across occupations and contrast starkly between urban and rural areas. The average wage per person in Vietnam is around 3.45 million VND ($150) a month and differentiated by many factors.

    My sister and two brothers (three people) in Vietnam combine income is 9,78 million VND ($426 US dollars) a month, which is about $142 US dollars for each person per month.

    One bed room apartment rent in Vietnam is ranging from $400 to $ $900 US dollars depend on the district where you live.

    My siblings apartment rent is in low end = $527 US dollars a month Water+electric+internet+phone …= $100 US dollars

    Total monthly expenses = $627 US dollars,(NOT include food and transportation)

    Total monthly income = $426 US dollars

    My siblings, of course, don’t have enough money to live in Vietnam. We have to send some money to help them out. I have submitted emigration applications for them. I hope they will come to US soon

  12. I really Love Vietnam. We visited Vietnam for the first time in 2018 (my idea). We visited Hanoi, Hoi An, and Saigon (HCMC). We've decided that when we travel aboard for 6 month tour of Asia, Africa, and Europe, we will make Hanoi, our home base. So instead of traveling back to the U.S. for the next adventure, we will go back to Hanoi for rest and retooling for our next country adventure. We will rent an apartment there during that time. The food is fabulous and so are the people. I love it.
