Living in Ho Chi Minh and Da Lat 
Can life in Ho Chi Minh City be considered a paradise? It is so difficult to 
respond to this question. Nowadays, there are so many people nationwide who choose 
Ho Chi Minh City as their second home because they think they will benefit a lot 
from this city, such as schools, hospitals, or money. Those having lived in Ho Chi 
Minh and Da Lat for ages will easily recognize that these are three typical differences 
which make Da Lat a better place to live in than Ho Chi Minh: weather, 
transportation, and cost of living. 
One noticeable difference between the two places is the weather. Ho Chi Minh 
City has two distinct seasons: a very humid, rainy season and a long, hot, dry season 
throughout the year. The highest temperature climbs to approximately 39°C around 
noon in late April and the lowest might be about 16°C in the early mornings of late 
December. In the dry season, December through April, it is really hot and humid. The 
hot climate is hard enough on the people that they have to turn the air conditioner all 
day. In the rainy period of May to November, it is a little cold but still humid because 
it has been constantly raining during this period of time. It is not easy to live in such a 
hot city because one always breaks into perspiration and feel uncomfortable in a daily

routine. Like Ho Chi Minh City, Da Lat also has two separate seasons that are rainy 
and dry seasons, yet these two seasons are clearly marked by distinct weather 
changes. In the dry season, November to April, it is somewhat hot but windy. This 
makes Da Lat more beautiful than the other. It can be considered an ideal point of 
time for students, who are out of school for summer, to go flying kites. The average 
daily high temperature peaks at 22°C at the end of June. The average relative 
humidity ranges from over 90% in the morning to around 60% the afternoon. The 
rainy season in Da Lat, May through October, is cool and rainy, with temperatures 
averaging in the upper 18°C to lower 22°C during the day and in the 13°C to lower 
17°C at night. This makes people living in Da Lat feel cool and comfortable 
throughout the year; therefore, one can enjoy fresh air and comfortable temperature 
all day. With such weather conditions, Da Lat definitely has more exclusive and 
desirable weather than Ho Chi Minh City. Overall, Da Lat is currently one of the 
most preferable places nationwide for people to visit for different purposes, such as 
settling in. 
Another major difference is transportation. It is true that Ho Chi Minh, one of the 
popular destinations, tends to be crowded and congestion occurs at any time, 
especially the time of getting off from work. Congestion takes on many faces, occurs 
in many different contexts, and is caused by many different processes. For example, a 
person has to go to work by motorcycle every single day. It takes him about an hour 
to come and leave the office because of heavy traffic congestion during rush hour. 
Besides, a growing number of local public transportation, such as taxis, buses moving 
on the narrow and down-graded roads all day also accounts for the chaotic and

disordered traffic flow models. Moreover, the volume of cars in Ho Chi Minh City is 
considered as the leading nationwide which causes perpetual traffic jam daily, 
especially during rush hour. Conversely, there is not much traffic in Da Lat. For 
example, students can spend approximately 10 minutes cycling to get home from 
school 2 to 3 miles away even if in the rush hour. Population in Da Lat is still lower 
than in Ho Chi Minh City’s. This leads to the use of vehicles in Da Lat is also less 
than in Ho Chi Minh City’s, especially cars. This apparent distinction of 
transportation makes Da Lat unique and much more attractive to people who tend to 
settle there. 
The most visible distinction between the two places is cost of living. In Ho Chi 
Minh, an average cost of living was about 2,000,000 VND/person a month (20,000 
VND ~ 1 USD) with an average salary per a worker per month from 2,500,000 VND 
to 3,000,000 VND (equivalent to $125 to $150) in 2010. This showed how high 
living expenses are in Ho Chi Minh City at the time. Moreover, it is hard for those 
who want to own a piece of small land to raise or plant anything on because land cost 
here is terribly much expensive and valued. An average cost of 100 square-feet house 
here estimated over 1 billion VND (equivalent to $50,000) in 2010. Conversely, in Da 
Lat, it only cost 1/4 times of cost of living/person/month in Ho Chi Minh while an 
average salary per a worker was between 1,500,000 VND and 2,000,000 VND 
(equivalent to from $75 to $100) in 2010. Compared to Ho Chi Minh, it is really 
cheap because one can plant any vegetables and raise poultry he wants in order to use 
fresh food and save a huge amount of money to live better. Moreover, nothing tastes 
as good as home grown, fresh-picked fruits, and vegetables. For instance, one can

raise a small garden for vegetables and raise chickens and ducks for eggs and meat. 
When vegetables are needed, it just takes a few minutes to pick them, or if one is in 
need of chickens, he could catch one from a herd of cattle. This not only saves 
money, but energy. Further, housing opportunities are available for everyone, 
especially low income workers because it does not cost too much to own one. 
Average cost of a house here was approximately 200,000,000 VND (equivalent to 
$10,000) in 2010 for a 100 square-feet house. This is really important information for 
those deciding where to live in order to save money and cover all living expenses. 
Thus, cost of living is both significant and prerequisite for one’s reference before 
making a decisive action for a better place to settle in. In general, the cost of living in 
Da Lat is less than Ho Chi Minh City. It is still a preferable choice to live in. 
The difference of weather, transportation, and cost of living between Ho Chi 
Minh and Da Lat bring them some advantages and disadvantages. With such the cool 
weather throughout the year, little transportation, and less cost of living, Da Lat is an 
ideal destination for people who are really looking for quietness, fresh air, and 
coolness to settle in. It is in such perfect condition that the population in Da Lat has 
been gradually increasing in recent years. Now, it is a strong recommendation for 
those definitely wanting to live in Da Lat that life in Da Lat can be considered a 
paradise. Therefore, living in Da Lat is still the best choice to consider future 
settlement and investment.
