Hi, I’m Ha. Welcome to Expatolife!

I believe that good planning makes your experiences better. The opportunity to travel and live abroad is both exciting and sometimes a little worrying, as you experience a whole new experience.

If you’re curious about your future journey, you’re in the right place.

What do I know about it?

I’ve lived in 3 countries and traveled to more than 30. I have had amazing experiences as well as haunting ones. I have made silly mistakes, and I have learned from them.

Over the years, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t.

As a writer, I love sharing my experience to help you enjoy the best of your experience.

In my articles, you’ll find information on budget travel tips, food reviews (my favorite!), travel stories & inspiration, as well as how to plan your expat life logistically.

In addition to Expatolife, I also offer advice and tips on Dev Handbook and Vietnamese Guide

I also have a group of writers who contribute to some of the guides too.

But who am I, really?

I was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and lived in Japan and Denmark.

With the advantages of my work, I have an opportunity to travel a lot.

I’ve spent time exploring many countries in Asia and Europe. On my trips, I love trying street food, experiencing the local cultures, and exploring off-the-beaten-path destinations. 

What else can I offer you?

I specialize in digital marketing, with extensive knowledge of SEO.

Having 5 years of experience working with international companies, I’ve helped brands grow, increased their organic visibility online, and ultimately driven more conversions.
