Tips

May 04, 2019

  • From on-demand motorbike taxis to apps that get your housekeeping done with a single tap, here are 10 Vietnam apps designed to make living life in Ho Chi Minh City so much easier.

     

    Moving to Vietnam can be a little daunting, but the advent of apps has made life a whole lot easier. Having trouble with the language? No problem, use a translator app. How about trying to find your way? Use a navigation app. Here are the ones Culture Trip finds most useful.

     

    Foody

     

    Foody is the Vietnamese equivalent of Yelp and Burpple, allowing users to share restaurant and street food recommendations with one another. In a city that can only be described as a giant open-air restaurant, this app comes in handy when making the difficult decision of where to dine next. Lucky for foreigners, the Vietnam app even includes an English language option for easy navigation (though a big chunk of the reviews remain in Vietnamese).

    Price: Free

     

     

    Cốc Cốc Map

     

    Cốc Cốc Map is a wonderful Vietnamese substitute to Google Maps, and it is even more user friendly. It easily allows you to find a certain type of venue in your district such as cafes, ATMs and petrol stations. Simply plug in your city, and then choose a category, and all the results that fit your category will light up in green on the map.

    Using taxis and GrabCars everyday may take a toll on your wallet, but with the Busmap.vn Vietnam app users are able to take advantage of the 100 plus bus routes and 2,000 bus stops scattered around Ho Chi Minh City. You even get the approximate waiting time for the next bus (but we don’t guarantee that the buses run on time). The app comes in English too, but is only available for Ho Chi Minh City specifically.

Users may be delighted to know that Grab Bikes are a thing in Vietnam, as they are able to navigate the traffic congested streets more easily.
