For example, Pho, one of the most popular foods. Made from rice, Pho is noodles served in a bowl of soup with chunks of meat (beef or chicken), accompanied by bean sprouts and orange leaves. Another tasty and crunchy dish is Bánh xèo, a Vietnamese pancake made from rice flour, coconut milk, and turmeric sauteed with meat, shrimp, and pile of toge. Some other tasty dishes that are no less delicious are Chao, Goi Cuan, and Nem Ran.
Vietnam has a long and complicated history. In the 110th century BC, Vietnam is under Chinese imperial rule until independence in 938. In the 19th century, Vietnam again became a French colony. Not surprisingly, until now the influence of China and France is still very thick in the culture of Vietnamese society, including in food, tourist attractions, music, community culture, and others. This is why visiting Vietnam will give a deep impression.
To see the remnants of culture influenced by China, come to the Temple of Literature, an ancient university that educates the elite of Vietnam centuries ago.

To eat typical Vietnamese food, you can also enjoy it on the side of the road or in the nearest markets. For lodging, many cheap hotels are available in Vietnam for tourists. However, it is also important to realize that the tourism industry in Vietnam may full of fraud. For that, travelers are required to research fraud cases that occur.
