But one thing is for sure - the Vietnamese LOVE the Americans.  They love them as much as they love the French.




It's not the question of love or hate. Vietnamese are kind and gentle people who are friendly to all foreigners. They just are people who look ahead and let bygone be bygone. 'Bathing' in the past and nourishing hatred will not help them on their way to build a modern and wealthy VN.

After that nasty little issue with Pol Pot - the Vietnamese figured what with America, it has a devil it knows versus the angel it thought they did.


do not be so happy. they remeber american bombings well. they do not think americans something like angel. if you read their history text books you find that.

A friend in need is a friend indeed. but vn never need bombings that americans dropped.

Just have a look for yourself. Visit Hanoi, HCMC, Da Nang or Hue and you'll quickly realize that the majority of foreign visitors are Chinese. You'll find them in the thousands. This is clear ...


satsu--just so you know most of the tourists in VN ARE NOT quite exactly what you have in mind...it was a coincidence that you WERE there at the right time to see/meet the chinese's tourists there.  welcome or not by the pure vietnamese IS NOT like they would prolly chasing us, chinese out of their country ev'rytime that they see us there...BUT in their hearts & their minds...and that's really hard to compromise!  the chinese vietnamese there are NOT like other overseas chinese...we ARE 110% fluently in their language & culture...BUT we ARE dum enough NOT to participate their political parties just like we are inany other countries around the world...money DO NOT have power (chinese used to dominate & controlled the economy in SAIGON..but now i guess you can figure it out easily w/o consulting wikipedia ).  WE HAVE TO SET OUR MIND in anyone's politics...not just busy of making money!

The animosity towards VN Chinese can be easily explained. During the war with the US most VN Chinese, if not all of them, collaborated with the occupational forces.

Still the fact remains, that VN attracts more and more Chinese group travelers. The figure for 2005 stands at more than 750k, almost as high as for Thailand with 800k visitors.

If you are interested, there is a study by prof. Chan, Y.W. available on the web - and no, certainly not on Wikipedia.
