Cost of living in Vietnam

Apart from our program fees that help you get settled in Vietnam, it is suggested that you always carry a certain amount of pocket money so as to survive here during the time of your program.

In most cases, how much you will spend depends mostly on what you want to purchase or the services you want to use; however, in general the cost of living in Vietnam is around 50% lower than in the US.

Do you believe with just $ 600 USD/month you will have basically everything you need for your new life abroad, from housing, food, transportation to leisure activities???  

The following tables reveal the reasons why you can make it happen in Vietnam:

A. ACCOMMODATION

By accommodation, we mean a safe and private room which usually consists of the following conditions and is a great shelter for your new life in Vietnam. It is not a place for you to just sleep, but truly your second home in the world. 

 You can check out further details and pictures of the different types of rooms you can choose for your stay in Vietnam HERE.

I was extremely satisfied with the overall service SE Vietnam provided before and during my 3 months Hospitality internship at Pan Pacific Hanoi. Their assistance was helpful, especially to get Visa, mobile phone, city tour, trip to Ha Long Bay.
