Born and raised in Hanoi, I strive to protect my Vietnamese identity while being a global citizen. Having lived in the UK, the US, Italy and visited m...ore than 30 countries, I am now more eager than ever to re-explore my beautiful country Vietnam. It would be rewarding to discover new things about Vietnam through the perspectives of both a local and an outsider, as I used to live abroad for many years. One of my favorite quotes is “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science” (Albert Einstein). That’s why I travel to experience not only the beauty but also the mysteries of the world. Let me share with you some of the mysteries of Vietnam, which might make you decide Vietnam is your next destination to discover.
