WELCOME TO INTERNATIONAL LADIES IN VIETNAM Ho Chi Minh City
ILV is a social organization of approximately 250 women from over 45 countries living in Ho Chi Minh City. We meet every Thursday morning for coffee at 10:00AM at the InterContinental Hotel. Our members find this to be an excellent time to meet new people, make new friends, and learn about Ho Chi Minh City and life in this hectic yet fascinating city. ILV meetings also often include guest speakers who tell us about a variety of interesting topics.
We also have weekly activities and periodically have special outings and evening meetings. Browse our Activities & Outings page to learn about all the fun we have!
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.
