  1. The unique drinking style

I have done quite a lot of city tours with tourists from different countries, which brings me the ability to answer some tough questions that even hardly do locals give though to
If you have been to Vietnam, you may be wondering why Vietnamese sit on little chairs along streets. I explained that because it is more convenient for everyone to move once the police come (it is not legal to take a seat on pavements in Vietnam). In here the higher the chairs are, the more money you have to pay. If you go in restaurants offering you high chairs, nice atmospheres, you should be ready to be charged much more than in restaurants providing you with meals on small chairs. Would you be willing to sit on the ground to have a free glass of lemon tea? Just kidding!

Besides, this is also the time to get to know a little about Vietnamese language, how to bargain and travel experience

  1. Friendly and kind people

Whenever someone asks me about my type of girl I would love to get married to, I say that Vietnamese women on traditional clothes are my cup of tea.

What do you think about Vietnamese women in traditional clothes ( Áo Dài).

Not only the Vietnamese women but also the Vietnamese in general is so kind and friendly. They are willing to welcome you with opened arms no matter who you are, where you come from, what color of your skin. In Vietnam, some English local tour clubs are organized to help you find out easily about the locals, culture and landscapes with no charge. That is an example to answer the question how Vietnamese people is?
