Being an expat in a foreign country can feel lonely but what makes it easier is meeting a bunch of other people who might have come from the same country as yours. Ho Chi Minh City has a huge expat community which is why it's easy to find your fellow countrymen who might currently be living in Saigon just like you. The easiest bet would be to go to Facebook and search for a page for upcoming events and social gatherings for your fellow Dutch. Here's a few pages to visit:

Nederlandse Vereniging Vietnam
