Support Us

Founded in 2017, Urbanist Hanoi has emerged as one of Vietnam’s most popular English-language websites, covering lifestyle, arts & culture, street food gems and everything else that makes Vietnam a special place for both local and international audiences.

We’ve come a long way over the last 2 years, publishing more than 3,000 stories while becoming an indispensable read for many seeking to understand a dynamic Vietnam.

Even though our advertising partners have helped us produce the product you enjoy today, your support is crucial in enabling Urbanist Hanoi to increase its editorial output and produce higher-cost content like videos and illustrations. Donations will also allow us to continue bringing unique, English-language stories from Vietnam to the world that would otherwise go overlooked by the mainstream media.

We believe in offering our content free and available to all, and so have not chosen to erect a paywall.

If you have enjoyed and benefited from our work, or if you believe, as we do, that Urbanist Hanoi's voice is an important one to have, please consider being a patron.

Pledge any amount you’re comfortable with in the form of a one-time or recurring donation from as low as $1, so we can continue bringing you the stories you love to read.

You can make your donation securely through the DonorBox widget on the left and make your payment via Stripe, Paypal, Apple Pay or Google Wallet. Recurring donations can be canceled at any time.
