One of the many conveniences of the modern world is having access to mobile phone service anywhere in the world via roaming services. But then again, let’s be honest, most of the time it’s cheaper to just get a new Sim card in the country you are visiting and then using their local prepaid services. If you’re an expat or a tourist who is just visiting Saigon for a few days, make sure that you have your sin card activated by the vendors you buy it from.

Viettel

Viettel is owned by the Ministry of Defence and thus the Vietnamese army.
