The Sun can be your enemy

In your home country, you may be a big fan of the feelings when you can soak in the sunshine. But in Vietnam, especially in scorching hot summers, the sun can burn you in minutes. As a tropical country, the average temperature in Vietnam can be up to 40ᶛC in mid-summers. That’s why you hardly see Vietnamese people expose their skin when they go outside or sunbathing below the heat. Besides, you may cope with many allergies related to skin.

Sometimes you need to scream to order your food

If you come from Western countries, shouting for your server is deemed to be rude and a quick way to receive glances from others customers. However, in Vietnam, it’s expected. In many local restaurants, servers may not come to your table unless you holler for them, or sometimes you need to scream in case this place is packed with people. You may feel impolite initially, but if you want to order a bowl of Pho or another plate of spring rolls, just take in a deep breath and shout “Em ơi!”, so the waiters can pay attention and come to serve you.

Horns are normal

When having a Vietnam private tour, you may meet the influx of people honking crazily during peak hours. Sometimes people blast this noise in fits of rage, but more often they use horns to let others know they’re nearby given the fact that Vietnam is home to a wide range of winding lanes with blinded spots. This is also the way to avoid the accidents. It’s odd for tourists, because in most of countries, you only hear horns when somebody is in a rush. However, if you spend your time in Vietnam, you can realize the simple fact that honking is an effective way to keep you alive among an ocean of vehicles.

Vietnam War is called the American War in Vietnam

In Vietnam, when referring the war between Vietnam and America, locals usually call it “American War”. It is understandable but it still takes some minutes to digest the first time you hear somebody say that. Nevertheless, in Vietnam, people don’t mention a lot about this war because of the amicable relationship between the two. Besides, many Vietnamese people are enthusiastic to American culture. Even the older generation has moved on, preferring to raise a toast to peace rather than being stuck in the shadow of the war.
