Vietnam is undoubtedly one of the most interesting and picturesque countries you could visit- let alone live in. Despite its history of war and conflict, the country is home to some of the most tranquil environments on earth. The people are generally friendly and welcoming of foreigners. As with neighbouring Cambodia and Laos, Vietnam is probably a location better suited to teachers seeking adventure and cultural enrichment than those seeking constant western comforts. The country has a relatively new ESL market but it’s also one of the fastest growing in the world. There are a range of opportunities available- particularly in the major cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
