I take a walk through Thao Dien, a popular expat area of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam and talk about something you should know before moving out to teach English in Vietnam.

God, another annoying South African ""english teacher"" that can't even speak proper English without butchering his pronunciation. "Hallo, it's ze nenja teaher here!"

You watch ONE video on a Vietnam English teacher and get recommended 100 different videos.

Hey Alex,
This was a great video. I have never been outside of the US. Iam a laid back person and Iam open minded. Im board and frustrated with the prices of everything here in America. So I would like to visit Vietnam next year.

Exactly how bad are the rats? I can deal with almost anything, but I've got a pretty strong phobia when it comes to rats. Uuugh…

Been in Thao Dien just a month ago for 2 weeks. Really was struck down a bit by the calm that it provided compared to the other shore. Lots of construction work taking place, good balance between locals and expats, and great coffee! Totally agree that this area is still one of the most liveable for expats in Saigon.

Hey Alex, are you still out there 2019?
I'm planning to come out there by 2020 to get my TEFL and live in Vietnam for a few years.

How safe is Vietnam? I recently heard about the two teachers from South Africa who went missing

Good informative video. Thank you. I'm a U.S. and E.U. citizen and I have lived in the U.S. and in Germany/Sweden about 50/50 of my life. There are advantages and disadvantages in any county. I agree with the comments here. You cannot bring your home country/expectations with you. My fiancee is Vietnamese and lives in Vietnam. When I was there recently, I didn't expect the amazing hospitality, love, care, warmth, and laughter I received and even though many people have little, they still give a lot. Here, in the West, we can easily live in a hamster wheel and put more emphasis on a nice car than on a nice heart. I felt a calm, a peace, and happiness in Vietnam for the first time in life in many years. Vietnam is a gem that can become YOUR gem if you let it.

I've just moved to HCMC, been here less than a week and planning on being here for four months studying. You've given me something to think about.. I've been in District 3 and am looking at moving to Thao Dien but maybe that's not the right choice.. I dont know! But thanks for the great video regardless 🙂

Thanks for the great and informative video. Looks like an area where someone could find relatively quiet places to ride a bike.

I love your videos, thoughts and company. If I ever move to Vietnam I´d love to join. About this particular video, I wanna say that moving street vendors outside the city center is great and the right thing to do. Getting stuck just to be cool and feel "like Vietnam" does not make much sense. Moving forward is always welcome!

The 'whole bathroom is a shower' is also common in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and I'm guessing Laos and Cambodia.
The alternative is often to use a dipper to lift water out of a cistern.
If you want to live in Tropical paradise, eating wonderful food, you have to accept dead rats in the gutter after a heavy rain.

Damn moving out because of a cold shower 😂 i feel like maybe the priorities are a little off.

But so true! I feel like one of the best things about vietnam (or living in any other country) is being exposed to things that youre not used to and getting out of your comfort zone! I know its one of the main reasons i came here and i im sure it is for many others as well. It helps you grow as a person
