Hi to everyone.

I'm a book writer and I'm looking to move between Vietnam and India.
I'm searching to find which country is cheaper because I will stay there for months.
I don't care if is not a tourist city but I care to be safe and cheap.
(some weeks ago i was thinking about Thailand, but someone inform me that is expensive)
What is your opinion?
Vietnam or India???
And how much cost an apartment with 2 bedrooms in India and how much cost in Vietnam??
I really need your help...!!!!!!

Thank you, Michael

    Hi Michael
    How about staying in Goa, it is very cheap especially after April when the monsoons come. It is cheap to eat/stay, the people are friendly and the food is fantastic. Just a one hour flight from Mumbai, very chilled out. You can contact Laxman at for apartment rentals.
    I am just a holidaymaker but loved Goa, going back again at Easter.

    Hi Jo. Thank you for your answer. I really need help :)
    I thought Goa is a tourist area and is expensive.
    I must stay there for months (less 3).

    A 3-month visa is cheaper and easier to get in India I think, Vietnam is about $50 for a 30-day visa
