The expat community is often made up of fascinating, knowledgeable, and talented individuals. They choose to become expats and move to another country due to job requirements, a desire for freedom, adventure, or a love for the culture, lifestyle, and people of that country.
In recent years, Vietnam has become an ideal destination. Many people choose Vietnam for the opportunities to develop their talents, increase their income, and get a stable life. Simultaneously, strong economic integration has also led to an increase in the number of foreign experts sent to Vietnam by international companies and corporations. Combined, these factors have contributed to the blossoming expat community in major cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.
The expat community is often categorised as a high-income group. They have experienced all sorts of high-class living spaces before, which explains their strict requirements for the home.

Similar to successful young Vietnamese people, they place a strong emphasis on criteria such as diverse facilities, spacious living area, and a convenient location to experience a comfortable life, like in developed countries. The neighbourhood community is also an important consideration factor when expats choose their living space. They want to have similarities in culture and lifestyle, as well as find long-term cooperative relationships.
In Hanoi, Tay Ho is a popular destination for the elite expats to live and work. Located in the middle of the area is West Lake, which is the largest natural lake in Hanoi. The lake is well-known for its poetic landscape and fresh air, an ideal choice for nature-loving expats. In addition, Tay Ho is planned to become the new administrative centre of Hanoi, so the infrastructure is well-invested, making it convenient to travel to the city centre, outskirts, or the airport.
Furthermore, Tay Ho has a high-quality and wide range of facilities and services. Foreign residents can easily choose international schools for their children or international hospitals and clinics for themselves and their families when needed. Restaurants, cafes, and bars are also diverse, bringing different vibes from many regions such as Asia, Europe, America, Latin America, among others.
The vibrancy of West Lake has been heating the real estate market of the region. Many high-end units, suitable for the convenient and luxury lifestyle of the elite customer group, are being developed. Among them, the SOHO (Small Office, Home Office) model is catching people’s attention. A SOHO unit can be used flexibly as both a living home and an office. Although this type of model has already been popular in developed countries, it has only been emerging in Vietnam recently.
