    • Vietnam is part of South East Asia, bordered by ocean on the west and south, with China to the north and Cambodia and Laos to the west. Vietnam is about the size of New Mexico (329,560 sq km), but shaped in a long, narrow “S”.

      Cambodia, officially known as the Kingdom of Cambodia, is a country located in the southern portion of the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is 181,035 square kilometres (69,898 sq mi) in area, bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east, and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest.

    • Both Vietnam and Cambodia have a hot tropical climate in the south and a monsoon climate in the north. The Vietnamese hot, rainy season lasts May to September and warm, and dry season is October to March, whereas in Cambodia, they occur from May to October and November to April, respectively.
    • Vietnamese is the primary language. It is a tonal language, relatively easy to read but difficult to speak. Luckily, English is growing in popularity. Khmer and related languages are spoken in some areas. The 65 tribes speak their own languages Mon-Khmer and Malayo-Polynesian.

      The Khmer language is a member of the Mon–Khmer subfamily and most common in Cambodia. French, once the language of government in Indochina, is still spoken by many older Vietnamese and Cambodians. However, the increasing number of tourists from around the world has resulted in the shift from French to English.

    • Rice is an integral part of life in Vietnam and Cambodia. They are both agricultural countries with most Vietnamese living in rural areas and making their living by growing rice.
    • A part from Hoi An, Hanoi is Vietnam’s only city where ancient streets can be found. These streets still keep the same appearance that they had at the end of 19th century. According to historical sources,they have been the true core of Thang Long since its foundation nearly a thousand years ago.

    Traditional toys are diverse among which rotation drums are very prevalent. This kind of toy is made of paper stretching across one side of a clay hoop to form a drum head, often decorated with a star painted on top. The drum-head is then attached to a straight bamboo handle, which is used to twist, by two wires. As the toy turns, a “drum stick”, suspended between the two wires by a rubber band, repeatedly, hits the drum-head, making loud clicking or drumming noises.

    Traditional New Year PaintingYou may have seen them before. They adorn the walls of Vietnamese restaurants everywhere in the world and Vietnamese overseas hang them up as Lunar New Year approaches. In Vietnam, production of these folk paintings peaks right before Tet as merchants stock up in anticipation of heavy customer demand. These paintings are traditionally used to decorate homes for the New Year festival. Producing Dong Ho paintings is a trade of time-honoured tradition of the village of Dong Ho. It is Dong Ho paintings that make Dong Ho village famous across Vietnam as well as in the world. In fact, only Dong Ho village’s people can turn out real Dong Ho paintings.
