We are moving from Chicago to Vietnam, is there a "on the ground" English speaking guide, etc that can assist us in exploring the area?
Vitnam has developped a lot recently and there are many english speakers that can help you. There are lot of tour guides but i'm sure once you move there and ask the neighbours you will find a good person willing to assist you.
Hi there, for a comprehensive guide to expat life in Vietnam, take a look at the Expat Arrivals Vietnam guide. This should answer most of your questions when it comes to life in the country from getting around, working, education and healthcare, and much more!
All the best with your relocation and your exciting journey ahead!
