What’s Special about Vietnam?

A crossroads for trade and a melting pot of cultures, Vietnam fuses local customs, regional influences, a torrid colonial past with France and a difficult legacy of war with the United States into one of the most multifaceted places in Asia. Experience the whirlwind of Vietnam life on a walk down its dynamic streets.


Cheerful, relentless, quick with a smile and even quicker with a deal, the Vietnamese pride themselves on being engaged and having a wicked sense of humor. Industrious and hardworking, they are courageous in the face of their contentious history.


Especially in the south, humid, warm conditions are the norm in Vietnam. Monsoon rains bring downpours during the summer, and typhoons strike the coast in both spring and fall. Winter brings cooler, dryer conditions, verging on cold in the mountainous north.


Vietnam’s large cities and tourist centers all have a wide selection of bars and nightlife. For more local fare, try an evening of Hat Tuong, a Vietnamese variant of Chinese opera, or the delicate and distinctively Vietnamese art form of water puppetry.


As you might have guessed from the innumerable flavors in the food, Vietnamese culture combines a number of local, regional, and international influences — from traditional family customs to Chinese Buddhist principles and the Parisian grandeur of Hanoi’s opera house.


Vietnamese is the official language of Vietnam and is spoken by most of the population. Minority and regional languages include Chinese, Khmer, and Cham. The younger generation and quite a lot of locals learn and speak French.


An ancient kingdom at times annexed by China, colonized by France, and the stage for one of the bloodiest confrontations of modern history, Vietnam today strives to carve out a place for itself in the world without compromising its culture and values.
