Vietnam captures many headlines in the media and opened up to foreign investors as late as 2015.
Here, you’re able to buy units from commercial projects on the primary market. This is often not a big issue, in the end of the day, foreigners mostly look for new or off-plan condos and villas in places like Ho Chi Minh, Bangkok, and Manila. Marcus Sohlberg reports on asiapropertyhq.
