Kiplinger recently placed Nha trang as the 6th best place in the world to retire


Reasons why Nha Trang is the most popular retirement destination in Vietnam.

·    Low cost health care and brand new modern hospital as of May 2012.



· Low cost food ( see e-book for individual prices). Fresh fish straight from the ocean or river (Nha Trang is a port as well and has a large fishing fleet). Vegetables, herbs and fruits straight off the farms all around Nha Trang. All year you can enjoy tropical fruit such as mangoes, durians, lychees, pineapples, mangosteen, coconuts, papaya, bananas, watermelon, passion fruit, dragon fruit…


·   As a result of cheap food and low wages dining out is cheap even at up market places ( except of course, the tourist traps)

·    Accommodation is very cheap.

·    Tours are cheap

·  Guns are not allowed in Vietnam so Nha Trang is a safe city to live in. They have normal police and tourist police to protect the citizens.

·   Nha Trang is great for health. It has cooling, refreshing sea breezes. It has public mud baths and hot springs that are therapeutic. Herbs like ginseng and ginger are cheap to buy and health drinks like Noni juice just 5% of the cost in Australia. Royal jelly, bee pollen and honey are also very cheap. Bird nest is collected in Nha Trang islands for bird nest soup and is reasonably priced compared to Western countries where it is really expensive. For about 30 cents you can buy a large healthy coconut and enjoy the cool refreshing milk and then break open to enjoy the succulent flesh of the nut. Being healthy can be expensive in western countries but not in Nha Trang. You can even join a gym for $5 per month!

·    Nha Trang has many attractions and many beaches. It also has island tours. 

· Most of the year Nha Trang is sunny and is not as hot as Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh city.

·    Nha Trang is usually not affected by cyclones or typhoons that occur further north.

·  Already thousands of expats from all around the world call Nha Trang home and L-O-V-E it!

Nha Trang girls are friendly and caring and less money orientated than girls in larger Vietnam cities.
