Everything about Vietnamese culture, language, food and business & social.
Vietnam is an amazing country with over 85 million people that lies in the middle of South East Asia. It boasts large tropical forest, numerous ethnic groups, colourful history and yet its strong resilience to pessimism is what defines the Vietnamese people.
UK is the home of more than 50,000 Vietnamese, many are first generation who first arrived in the early 80s. They are now joined by over 8,000 overseas students from Vietnam. London has the largest concentration of Vietnamese, and is the best place to experience Vietnamese culture.
