How about a Vietnam sub-forum?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

After reading about the new visa requirements there won't be any need for a new forum as there won't be anyone there

Better to have a Southeast Asia subbie, I reckon.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Agreed. Vietnam can just get a thread like this one, not enough interest for a full subforum.

Don’t need too many subforums.

Yeah, I'm starting to feel the same way. The 30 days and out rule will smack just about every expat in Vung Tau, for example. It will become a ghost town, no exaggeration. A lot of the visa dodges have been shut down, no long-term visas any more and some expats actually had their (expensive) Temporary Residency Cards confiscated upon arrival last year. Nothing but bad news.

I am in Vietnam currently, for a 1-month long holiday, from Phnom Penh. It is my first time here and I am very positively impressed by the country and seriously considering the options of moving here. It is generally cheaper - electricity is 1/5th, nice apartments are $5 a night if you know how to find them, western food is half price to Cambodia, new car taxis the same prices as tuk-tuks in PP and motorbikes are cheaper too. It is more developed, more shopping options and cleaner, plus the country offers more landscape-wise (cool mountains, un-spoilt beaches). Visas for the long term, if you are not an American, seem to be a pain but I am sure are possible with some research.

A sub-forum would be great, so those considering a move could share knowledge and tips.
