The changing face of Vietnam

Posted on September 21, 2017 at 3:57 am

Vietnam is a wonderful country to visit, and it’s very much a tale of two stories in many ways. The North Vietnamese people act differently around tourists to their South counterparts, and some say the Southern people are more welcoming and friendly. The country is more united than ever before, but there are problems it’s facing with regards to tourism. Let’s take Nha Trang as an example. This is a major tourist area where it’s predominantly packed with Russians and other Eastern Europeans. It doesn’t feel like Vietnam, the local people are working for their Russian owners, whilst beaches are not treated with respect. The plastic is everywhere swimming in the sea and you feel like your in Benidorm at times. Vietnam should remain true to its culture and not lose its identity for tourism cash. That is of course easier said than done, but too many towns and cities are losing their identities as the country expands and grows.
