A place with an incredibly rich history, culture and cuisine: arguably the best food in South-East Asia. Vietnam is a rising star and right now is the perfect time to hop on and move along with the flow that this country is in. 

Financial crisis? Not in Vietnam, where the economy is booming. The result of that can be seen everywhere around you. International businesses settling in the country, new companies popping up like wildflowers and opportunities everywhere for the taking. 

Not only work-wise a great chance to learn and develop, but also an opportunity to experience living in a country that is probably very different from where you’re from. The rich and strong culture offers many interesting opportunities to try new traditions, holidays and food. And no matter what environment you wish to surround yourself with, Vietnam has got a place that meets your wishes. Big, lively cities, small villages, beaches, islands and stunning countryside.
