After having experienced the Vietnamese culture for the past two years, we are convinced this is truly a remarkable country. Our first few months found us floundering, unsure about this new experience, trying to adjust. Having experienced other Asian cultures, adjustment to this one did not take as long as we first thought it might. The culture shock was not as intense as what we had experience in Beijing and Hong Kong, nor was it as uncertain as that of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, having toughed it out, we have found this to be a wonderful home, one that we will continue to enjoy for several more years. We pray our blog and the sharing of our experiences will help you discover Beautiful Hanoi.
