Ho Chi Minh City

ILV is a social group of approximately 200 women from over 40 countries who live in Ho Chi Minh City. We meet every Thursday morning for coffee at 10:00AM at the InterContinental Saigon Hotel. Our members find this to be an excellent time to meet new people, make new friends, and learn about life in hectic yet fascinating Ho Chi Minh City. ILV meetings also often include speakers who tell us about a variety of interesting topics.

We have weekly activities, special outings and evening events. Browse our website to learn about all the fun in store at ILV!

Whether you have yet to move, are newly arrived, or have been here awhile, we would love to have you join us at a coffee morning or other activity to learn more about ILV and the many member benefits. Membership is available to ladies of all nationalities and is renewable annually.
