Hi, I had been offered a job in Hanoi, with 5000 USD/month as my salary; I just wanted to know - What would be the approx. net amount after tax deduction? - Is 5000 USD a good amount for a family of two (myself and my wife) to live a decent lifestyle in Hanoi. Thanks

Hi Ankur,

I think its possible to live well on USD 5000 per month in Vietnam. You biggest cost will be accommodation and schools fees (but maybe your employer will be covering this.)

You can use the Cost of Living in Vietnam page to get an idea of average expenses you will have in Vietnam.

Good luck,
.

You or your company may pay 700$/month-1000$/month for housing. 1000$/month for eating and consupmtion 500$/month for travel You still save 2500$/month If you need any my help about service apartment in Hanoi, pls let me know as I have 6 years in working real estate in Hanoi.

The average vietnamese earns 200-400 a month. You will pay more than them due to being an expat, but 5k USD a month you will live like a king.
