Question: What do Vietnamese people typically look like?
A picture is worth a thousand words. Coupled with the photos, I’ll also list the Vietnamese region where they are from (north, central or south). These looks are what we Vietnamese see everyday from people around us and I can say it’s the average looks of the majority of Vietnamese.
In most of the cases, we can not tell the difference between northern or southern Vietnamese and the only way to differentiate is hearing them speak, and guessing based on their Vietnamese accent.
