According to VNA, Vietnam makes it to the top 10 thanks to the strong financial security and positive work-life balance, in addition to its welcoming environment for newcomers.

Among over 22,000 expats worldwide responded to the survey, the majority said they were able to quickly adjust to the local lifestyle, stating that they felt at home within the first few months upon their arrival.

Earlier, an InterNation’s survey also listed Ho Chi Minh City among the world’s top 10 cities with the cheapest living-cost for foreigners by the prestigious Business Insider.
