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.

Great internship here in Vietnam. I recommend Westerners to go there at least once to see things differently. A bientôt Vietnam!


HUGO BOITEL

I don’t think there is anything that SE Vietnam could’ve done better. They gave me all the support I need to get through my internship in Vietnam.


HEATHER JOANN SHEFFIELD

I would definitely recommend this program to my friends/colleagues or anyone that are interest in doing internship abroad in Vietnam.


ANDREW NGUYEN

I get lots of support from my Vietnamese local buddies and become real friends in spite of different interests. 


ISABELLA T. SULLIVAN

I was extremely satisfied with my internship in Vietnam experience in general and the service that was providedby SE Vietnam in particular. The staffs always listened to my worries, and they tried to keep my safety and that really relieves my anxiety being in a foreign country.
