2 Ways to get a Vietnamese IP address
1. Use a VPN service
Using VPN services is the option that I recommend for getting Vietnamese IP addresses. Especially if you need it for streaming an unblocking restricted websites. Plus, the VPN is more secure than proxies.
As mentioned above there are not many providers that offer access to servers located in Vietnam. Here are the ones that I found and the locations of the servers:
- HideMyAss VPN – Ho Chi Minh City (1 server)
- ibVPN – Saigon (1 server)
- PureVPN – Hanoi (2 servers)
- NordVPN – Hanoi (1 server)

2. Use Web Proxies
Web proxies are a free alternative to commercial VPNs. They are very easy to use, but it is not suitable for online streaming as they are usually too slow and unreliable.
In order to use such a web proxy simply visit the proxy site, type in the desired URL and press the Go or Submit button. Thus, the site is loaded from the IP of the proxy not from your IP address.
One such a web proxy with Vietnamese IP address is Teleport. If you know more feel free to share them in the comments below.
Before using web proxies make sure you read: Risks of using a proxy site.
To conclude there are options to get access to a Vietnamese IP address. Not many, but they exist. My two cents is to go for a VPN service especially if you are interested in streaming or downloading, but you may also try the web proxy listed above.
