Cost of living in Vietnam – an open book to all expenses you need to know. How does that cost compare if you selected to live in Thailand instead? Digital nomad, expat or wanting to retire in Vietnam this is the complete 2017 costs.
We spent 3 months living in Hoi An tracking all our expenses and we’ll share all of the cost of living details you need, then a comparison between Chiang Mai, where we spent 4 months.
Hoi An is the highlight of Vietnam, it’s a bit tricky to get established and settle in but it’s a great way of life, beautiful place, costs are low and there are plenty of other digital nomads.
Chiang Mai is such a great place, and with low living costs we can’t recommend starting your Digital Nomad journey in Thailand any more because it’s just a little easier to get apartments and settle in.
Either way, travel to both and if you’re looking to retire it’s a tough pick between the two!
