Welcome Oi!

 

Welcome Oi!
Expats and tourists alike are always on the lookout for English-language publications in Vietnam. It’s not so much about getting Newsweek and Times magazine but English magazines published in Vietnam like Asia Life and Word.  Such magazines serve as a roadmap to everyday living in Vietnam and show what else what one could be missing out on.  With most news and features show on TV in Vietnamese, suffice to say that a lot of non-Vietnamese are missing out on a lot of things.
Copies of these magazines are usually available in restaurants expats hang out and are free but with a burgeoning English-speaking crowd in Vietnam, there’s always room for more publications.
Making their debut is Oi Vietnam. They released their maiden issue this March with a slightly bigger magazine compared to what is already available.  With bigger photos and longer articles, Oi has put in much meat into its pages. The business listing is not as thick as the other magazines but that may well change in the next few months.  Oi has also taken a more “slice of Vietnam” cover than the stylized thematic cover we’ve grown accustomed to with Word and Asia Life.   
Oi also has its magazine available online for viewing which is pretty standard nowadays for free local publications.  Check out www.oivietnam.com.
This two letter word, Oi, has always been a part of Vietnamese language conveying shock, joy, and endearment.  If the maiden issue is anything like the next ones that’ll come out, Oi may just have endeared itself to its readers.
