What if I told you that, with a couple of top tips, you could rent a great room in in the center of District 1 Saigon with private bathroom, TV, air conditioner, fridge and a nice big window, I am living proof that my claim is absolutely legitimate for the cheapest price per month all inclusive?
Renting in Ho Chi Minh City is like leaping into a jungle. The possibilities are almost endless, but unless you know exactly what you’re looking for and how to find it, chances are you’ll never get past those first, very obvious obstacles. The reality is that the best apartment for rent in Ho Chi Minh City often require a bit of searching. But how do you start?
Too many people come to Saigon and sort of want to rent an apartment, sort of don’t really know how or what, and sort of
just end up somewhere… Take the time to consider what it is YOU actually want! Prioritize things, cut some non-essential features out, and figure out your budget based on your requirements. From experience I will always priorities a private bathroom and fast, reliable Wi-Fi. Other friends need air conditioning, a TV, a fridge, etc… It all depends on your lifestyle.
And then there’s the question of money. People usually think about their budget first, but it’s actually better to put it last. You can mold a budget to a dream, but if you mold a dream to a budget you’re bound to be dissatisfied! Line up a list of the things you need in a home, be brutally honest, and then figure out if you can pay for them. Prioritize things, cut some non-essential features out, and figure out your budget based on your requirements.
