Finding a reliable electrician in Saigon can be complicated, especially for expats because if you're not from the area, you might not know where to start. Also, despite several posts or pages that might turn up when you go to the forums or look online, there are no standards to speak of. Here's a quick tip: ask questions related to a guarantee of work and minimum charge for a visit before agreeing to any work. 

For any house call, most companies will have an electrician visit the site to assess the scope of work and if it is a minor job, give an on the spot quotation. Electrician companies often put pamphlets in mailboxes with their telephone number. You can also find your electricians the “Vietnamese way”: ask your landlord, the person who sold you the apartment or your neighbours for their electrician. They often live nearby and are ready to come after a quick phone call. More good news is that often they are a jack of all trades: fixing machinery, plumbing and even taking care of your damaged wooden floor. Maintain a good relationship with them and you will see how much it simplifies your life.
