Vietnam is one of the best places to live with low living cost
According to InterNations, 91% of foreigners are happy with the cost of living in Vietnam.

InterNations, the world's largest organization for people living and working abroad, has released the Expat Insider 2017 report. They surveyed more than 12,500 people working in 188 countries around the world to know about their lives in another country.

InterNations evaluates countries based on 40 criteria ranging from finances to family life. On personal finance, countries are ranked according to the answers to two questions: "How would you describe your financial situation?" and "Is your income enough to afford the cost of living?". Participants will evaluate on a scale of 7.

The cost of living is also included in the report. Vietnam ranks the first place in both areas. In fact, Vietnam is the most ideal place to live for foreigners in terms of personal finance and the living cost. 91% of the participants were satisfied with the cost of living here and 43% said it was affordable.

Here are the 10 cheapest countries to live in the world, according to InterNations. The numbers are up-to-date (till September, 2017) and taken by Numbeo. The cost of living includes the cost for one-bedroom apartment in the city center, utilities, moving, coffee and beer.
