Vietnam is a fast growing economy with improving living standards and declining numbers of people living in poverty. It is also a member of the World Trade Organisation, which speaks for further development and better living conditions.

 

The country is a territory with history dating back to the centuries before Christ. Many dynasties has changed over the past, followed by the French Indochina period (under French rule) and iconic Vietnam War (1954 – 75), which was a war between South and North Vietnam and technically a cruel and long fight against the oppressive communist regime and its reforms where United States were included.

It resulted into a merge of both South and North Vietnam, which laid the first brick towards the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. However, the war itself had devastating results with massive numbers of casualties.

The final culinary experience is unforgettable.
