"The People" Top 5 Page for this destination Vietnam Favorite Tip by iwys

Vietnam General: 299 reviews and 295 photos


Fondest memory: Warm, friendly people.

I had read some visitors' opinions that Vietnamese people are quite rude and aggressive. From my personal experience, this is not the case.

I found people everywhere to be warm, friendly and helpful. The problem may be that often, the first Vietnamese people many foreign visitors encounter are the cyclo riders of Ho Chi Minh City. Some of those guys are so desperate for money that they do tend to forget their manners. If you see the Vietnamese film, "Cyclo", you'll know why.
