Ask anything related to living and working in Saigon or Vietnam. All that I ask in return is that you look at the existing topics and try to help others with any information that you know.

internet access to US sites

I'm a web developer thinking of moving to Viet Nam for a year. Can anyone comment on access to US based sites? Are any sites blocked?


From your perspective the only thing you will have trouble accessing is Facebook sometimes, and maybe BBC. Otherwise, there are some Vietnamese-language blogs that are blocked but you probably aren't reading those.

I've previously written about censorship in Southeast Asia.

I recommend having a VPN somewhere which you can quickly switch on both to access any sites which expect you to be in the US and to protect yourself from snooping eyes.
