Vietnam, having been closed up for almost 30 years since the American war, is now a valiant country, able to forget about the
ugly part of the history, and move on to become one of the fastest-growing country in Asia.
My impression of visiting Vietnam was always like visiting 1980s' China. This trip not only completely erased that impression, but also I saw
something that will bring Vietnam ahead of China.
Food in Vietnam is another high point of this trip. Generally, Vietnamese meals are small, and they eat many meals in a day. Coffee is strong but cafe is
always full of people.
The beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage site lies inside a maze of unexplainable natural architectures. Fast growing tourism here brings fortunes to
the local people, at the same time it starts ruining the natual wonder because of lack of standards and monitoring.
A lot of people confuse Vietnamese food with Chinese food. Please don't, because Vietnamese are very proud of their own cuisine.
They always say, "Chinese food is too oily, Vietnamese is much healthier". I personally find this quite true.
