WELCOME TO INTERNATIONAL LADIES IN VIETNAM Ho Chi Minh City
ILV is a social group of approximately 250 women from over 45 countries who live 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.

The ILV Annual General Meeting was held on March 22, 2018
Thanks to every ILV member who attended the AGM. We had a nice turnout and an enjoyable time was had by all. With business out of the way, the new Committee was announced. Each of the new Committee members is committed to making this a fabulous year for ILV.
If you would like to work with the Committee and find out what the positions entail, we will be looking for sub-committee members to help organize outings and events and to help with the various tasks of each position. This can be a nice way to learn more about ILV, and your help will be greatly appreciated. If you are interested in helping make 2018 a wonderful year for ILV, please contact the relevant Committee member by clicking on their email button on the Committeepage.
Also, as most of us are here on indefinite assignments, ILV occasionally has unexpected committee vacancies which need to be filled during the year. Being on the ILV Committee as a committee or sub-committee member is very rewarding, and is a great way to provide your valuable input for the benefit of all members. The Committee wants YOU!
We had a Blast at the Recent Bowling Outing!
After a lovely breakfast at Au Parc, eight teams of ILV ladies took over the bowling alley at Diamond Plaza on Wednesday, January 31st. There were prizes for best costume, best team, best bowler, and more. A fun time was had by all! Photos are up on the Photo Gallery page. Have a look!
The photo below is of Doris receiving her Best Bowler trophy from Parla and Jay. Well done, Doris!
