I have just been offered a job in Vung Tau and at first lept at the opportunity, envisioning myself living in a beach hut and riding to work in a bicycle. After reading numerous posts I am starting to doubt my exotic South East Asian dreams have a chance of coming true in VT and would love some insight from people who are living there at the moment or who have considered moving there. My main priority is the beach and its cleanliness. Swimming amongst plastic bags and oil/petrol is less than ideal. Also, being a young woman on my own, I am concerned that the social life may not be quite as fresh and exciting as Hanoi. While on occasion I would love to hear about 'the old days' from war veterans, I wonder if there is a younger community around and about?
Thanks so much for your help/advice.
