ILV - Friendship, Support and Information

International Ladies in Vietnam

Welcome to ilv

“ILV is a social group of approximately 150 women from over 30 countries who live in Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon as we also call our hometown. We meet every Thursday morning for coffee at 10am at the Park Hyatt Saigon. Our members find this to be an excellent time to meet new people, make new friends, and learn about life in hectic yet fascinating Saigon. ILV Coffee mornings include speakers about a variety of interesting topics or workshops on different themes.
We have weekly and monthly activities, special outings and evening events. Browse our website to learn about all the fun in store at ILV! This year ILV is turning 30, so we will have even more things happening this year to celebrate our magnificent Anniversary. We are proudly the oldest social group in Saigon.
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 to learn more about ILV and the many member benefits. Membership is available to ladies of all nationalities and is renewable annually.
Please contact us by clicking here if have questions about ILV or want to join. We can’t wait to meet you!

See you soon,

Kelly Ginley, ILV President”

Upcoming Outings and Workshops

ILV organises outings at least once a month. They may be taking place in Saigon or they may be longer day trips outside the city. Signup to these takes place at the Coffee mornings. We inform our members about the outings via Newsletter, our Whatsapp group and at the Coffee mornings. Please contact if you are a member to be added to our Noticeboard Whatsapp group or if you have not received the monthly Newsletter.
You can read more about ILV’s regular activities on the Activities page.


Every third Thursday of the month at 12:30 p.m. (after ILV Coffee Morning), at a restaurant near Park Hyatt Saigon.

This lunch is primarily for those who have become ILV members in the past three months, but all members are invited to join in.

It is an opportunity for new members to learn more about ILV and about living in Saigon, including the best places to shop or dine or have a coffee, where to get what, and all the questions you want to ask. You will also meet some of our Committee members and other newcomers. An Evite will be sent to ILV newcomers about a week before the lunch. Watch your inbox for the Evite, or let us know if you haven't received it.
