Living in Vietnam

Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered on the north by China, on the northwest by Laos, on the southwest by Cambodia and on the east by the South China Sea.

Vietnam has a population of over 86 million, making it the 13th most populous country in the world. Vietnamese (Kinh) is the native language. Other languages spoken include Tay, Muong, Chinese, Nung, H'mong and French. English is considered to be a second language and its study is mandatory in schools.

The country is characterised by a diverse cultural make-up of more than 60 ethnic groups. However, the Kinh, or Viets, make up 85% of the population. Four philosophies and religions have shaped the culture in Vietnam: Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and Christianity. Over the centuries, the three former belief sets melded with popular Chinese beliefs and ancient Vietnamese animism to form what is known as Ta Giao or 'Triple Religion'.

Attractions and Activities

If you are planning on living in Vietnam with your family, rather than commuting during your Vietnam Airlines job, you may like to consider exploring the country’s rich range of attractions during your days off.

  • Take a leisurely paced Cyclo tour around the city to soak in the historical sights.
  • Explore the beautiful tropical beaches along Vietnam's extensive coastline.
  • Make time to watch Vietnamese theatre and puppetry, music and dance.
  • Visit the dynamic, bustling markets to purchase fresh produce or to shop for a bargain.
  • Enjoy the varied Vietnamese cuisine of nearly 500 traditional dishes, known worldwide for being fresh and delicious.
  • Admire the traditional crafts of paintings produced on frame-mounted silk, religious sculpture, lacquerware and ceramics.

Your Base in Vietnam

Your base residence in Vietnam for the term of your Vietnam Airlines job will be either Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) or Hanoi. Like other Southeast Asian countries, the cost of living in Vietnam is fairly inexpensive. There is a range of accommodation options that vary in both style and price.

Houses and apartments are popular choices for our Vietnam Airlines pilots. Houses are generally cheaper than apartments, but many people prefer the ease that apartment living offers. An accommodation allowance is included in the monthly fee payment, to cover the cost of your chosen accommodation.

The quality of education is very good. There are a range of schools to choose from (International, British International, French and American) which offer a cosmopolitan atmosphere with children from all parts of the globe.

In terms of transportation, many Vietnam Airlines pilots choose to use a local driver with a car or purchase a scooter to get around – both of these options are very affordable. Taxi transport is also inexpensive and easily accessible. Public buses are everywhere and are incredibly cheap; it's just a matter of learning where to get on and off!

Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are both very busy cities, with many restaurants, bars, shops and markets. There are numerous sporting and entertainment facilities and high-quality medical facilities on hand 24 hours a day. Off-network domestic air travel is cheap, which provides a great opportunity to explore the many wonderful holiday destinations available within the country during your Vietnam Airlines job contract.

Centrally located, Vietnam is also the perfect base from which to explore wider Southeast Asia, with plenty of short flights to destinations such as Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Malaysia available.
