What is the time difference between UK and Vietnam? When travelling or studying between these countries, you need to consider that they are in different time zones. Besides, the UK has two different time zones in winter and summer, so this factor needs to be taken into account when calculating the time between these two countries. Wolo Tours will show you the details in this article. Read now!

>>>> SEE MORE: Visas Vietnam: Types, cost, requirements, policy & application

1. Time Difference between Uk and Vietnam

Vietnam time is 7 hours ahead of UK time. In the winter, the UK time will follow GMT +0. Thus, Vietnam time will be equal to UK time plus 7. For example, the current time in the UK is 4 am, then it will be 11 pm in Vietnam. Conversely, the UK time will be GMT +1 in the summer, so Vietnam time will be equal to UK time plus 6. The result is that Vietnam will be 10 pm if the UK is 4 am.

Furthermore, to understand why time zones in the UK are subject to daylight variation, you need to understand the definition of DST (Daylight Saving Time). DST is a temporary time zone that is altered due to the amount of sunlight which means fewer mornings and more afternoons. As a result, the time will adjust to 1 hour faster on spring days and back to a normal time in autumn.

1. Is Vietnam safe for Living?

Living in Vietnam is certainly safe for everyone. This country rarely experiences terrible natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis. However, Vietnam is a one-party communist country with a mainly agricultural economy. It also ranks low in terms of religious freedom with religious acts suppressed by the government if they violate the so-called “national interest” and “public order”.

2. 5 Tips for living in Vietnam as an Expat

Vietnam has entered the top 10 best countries for foreigners to live and work for the first time according to the recently released HSBC Expat 2019 report. Besides, some social evils such as theft or pickpocketing are still taking place but are not too terrible. In case you have any problems while living in Vietnam and need the intervention of the authorities, here are some tips for you.

2.1 Language

Vietnamese is considered by many foreigners a difficult language to learn. Therefore, it is still a long time for foreigners to communicate with Vietnamese people. There are very few Vietnamese who know foreign languages, including international languages such as English. This makes it very difficult for travellers and people who want to live and work in Vietnam.

2.2 Transportation

Vietnamese people mainly travel by motorbike because this is the most mobile means of transport possible to every corner of Vietnam. Many foreigners feel unsafe when travelling by this vehicle, but there are many foreigners in Vietnam who have also become proficient motorcyclists after a few years. Moreover, transport infrastructure is difficult and has not been invested in remote areas yet.

2.3 Weather Conditions

Vietnam’s climate is tropical monsoon. It has a rainy season, very hot summers, and cold winters. Although not too harsh, it is also not easy to adapt, especially during the season change. Many foreigners living in Vietnam feel unable to adapt to the weather here.

2.4 Vietnamese Cuisine and Dishes

Living in Vietnam as a foreigner is always an experience. You will have the best memories of warm evenings sitting on small plastic chairs on the street with friends enjoying a big bowl of pho and a few beers. Vietnamese street food is similar across the country with slight differences in the North, Central and South regions.

2.4.1 Street food

Most Vietnamese people have their meals on the street. It is only in the last few years as tourism has increased that the restaurant scene has begun to explode. If you live in big cities like Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, or Da Nang, you will have no problem finding Western restaurants.

There are also many luxury Vietnamese restaurants. They are usually geared towards large groups of tourists. However, the best Vietnamese food you will find is served on the street such as banh mi, bun cha, pho, dumplings, and more.

2.4.2 Groceries, Supermarkets and Markets

When you live in Vietnam as a foreigner, you can buy groceries in two ways. You can visit the local food markets dotted throughout the city or you can buy them from major supermarkets. During your time in Vietnam, you may eat some strange tropical fruits that you have never tried before.

Arriving at the Vietnamese traditional market at 6 am is a pleasant experience. The people, the noise, the smells, the sights, and the variety are pure madness. Do not be shocked to be pushed aside because everyone is trying to get the best products. At first, you can be fooled by the market, but once you get used to the face, you will know the local prices.

2.5 Health & Wellness in Vietnam

Conditions for receiving health care services of Expat living in Vietnam

Overall, Vietnam has a very good health system that is rapidly improving. The industry’s focus on prevention rather than cure is one of the reasons for Vietnam’s rapid response to the coronavirus pandemic. Most preventive health care services are free in Vietnam, including vaccinations and maternal and child health care.

Besides, Vietnam has a mixed public-private healthcare system, although it is slowly transitioning to a fully-public model. The healthcare model is far more advanced in metropolitan urban centres but is slowly reaching the countryside too.

Insurance for Foreigners living in Vietnam

Foreigners often choose to go to private hospitals in Hanoi or Saigon, as these hospitals are more likely to be staffed with English or French-speaking doctors. For this reason, you should purchase private health insurance, especially if you live outside of urban centres.

You may also want to consider adding medical evacuation insurance. The reason is you may find certain specialist treatments that require you to travel to Bangkok, Singapore, or Seoul. However, Europeans cannot use GHIC or EHIC in Vietnam.

Vaccination against covid 19

People who are not Vietnamese on arrival must adhere to a mandatory two-week quarantine period upon arrival. You will also need to submit a health declaration. However, the Ministry of Health is currently debating whether to allow visitors with Covid passports to enter without quarantine.

If you intend to come to Vietnam soon, you need to consult the local news or your embassy for advice, and prepare for the quarantine period when you arrive, such as arranging accommodation. In case you need a vaccine after arriving in Vietnam, you should be able to get one for free through your state’s health care system.

On the other hand, if you are a teacher, you may have more freedom in choosing where you will live, so you can think of some lesser-known cities.

3.1 Northern area (Hà Nội)

Hanoi is less built-up than Ho Chi Minh City and feels much more spacious. The city is now becoming more modern with hundreds of cafes, bars, restaurants, clubs, and festivals open all the time. You can find most expats hanging around the area of Ho Tay by the big lake drinking coffee with friends, reading books, and studying.

This is a special residential area for those who want to live in a more peaceful and less polluted area. Hanoi offers an incredibly relaxed experience with a good community of like-minded people. It’s a great city with lots of activities, meetings, and seminars.

3.2 Central area (Đà Nẵng)

This city is the perfect mix between the city, beaches, forests, and mountains. Among these sides, there is still give off a strong relaxation vibe with coffee shops everywhere, promenades, and spaces for leisure. The city also has close access to a huge national park. This provides access to hiking, waterfalls, camping spaces, and motorcycle trails.
