We are delighted to offer the new updated Resident Guide to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). We have designed this to meet the information needs of not only expatriate residents, incoming new residents and those firmly established in the country, but also high net worth Vietnamese who are faced with the same choices in goods and services as expatriates in key sectors such as education, banking, insurance, health, real estate and many other businesses.

The publication reflects the same quality production values as the City Pass guides, and it is more information rich in content. It is the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide in the Vietnamese market. A dedicated team of international and Vietnamese writers have combined to produce a guide that serves the needs of expatriates and residents alike, but also providing unique local Vietnamese insights and perspectives. One of the key purposes of the City Pass Resident Guide is to successfully blend Western and Eastern social perceptions to better understand everyday life in HCMC.

The guide contains the most detailed map of HCMC ever compiled, and is paired with the first easy-to-understand bus map of the city. These are complemented with comprehensive and up-to-date area maps for each district. In addition to this industry-leading book, we promote our clients’ goods and services through two mediums: www.citypassguide.com and our free applications on iPhone, iPad and Android.
