I'm considering applying to a large British school in HCMC but am wondering if the lifestyle will suit me and my family. We have 3 young daughters and enjoy the outdoors (sailing, running, wild swimming, surfing, mountain biking etc.) where we live in Devon. Although we are looking to experience an alternative lifestyle and culture I'm concerned that we may not find the leisure options suitable in HCMC. Many of the posts here that talk of how great the lifestyle is mention cheap restaurants and cheap beer in expat bars, neither of which are of great interest to me. I'm a bit concerned about the traffic danger for kids crossing the road, the danger of cycling or motorbiking, and the down town air pollution. I wouldn't expect to be able to afford weekend flights to great resorts for all 5 of us. Do you think HCMC is suitable for a young family that enjoys the outdoors? Thanks for your thoughts.
