With a foreigner, you can think about Vietnam as much as you want. But to feel Vietnam, you have to live here. By and by you will no longer think about it but sympathize with it. You and Vietnam will get along in a way that any expat who has lived in Vietnam for a long time will feel.

It depends whether they have interacted with Vietnamese or not. mostly I can mention about:

Vietnamese is hard-working

Vietnamese is anti-social, bad at communication skill

Vietnamese is generally smart

In Singapore, people probably think that Vietnamese is good at Math & Computer Science

Vietnamese girls are beautiful (Japanese view)

Vietnamese goods are good & healthy

etc

Original question: As a foreigner, what do you think about Vietnam?

I think that Vietnam is populated with an astonishing people. The French learnt this at Điện Biên Phủ - there are not a lot of people who would carry artillery over mountains, after all.

My opinion is that a Vietnamese child must learn about hard work and making money at about the same time they learn to eat rice. They are a beautiful and placid people, until they become tenacious.

I further think that if it wasn’t for an astonishingly ignorant US State Department and presidency, then the letters written to President Truman by Hồ Chí Minh would have been taken seriously; both the US and Vietnam would have been spared a great tragedy.

The very concept of a Vietnamese communist is something of a contradiction in terms.

I also think that this is the sexiest national costume on the planet.

Also, this is the most surprising thing I can serve to guests:

Those would be my thoughts about Vietnam.

What do foreigners think about VIETNAMESE?

This group is far too large to generalise. There’s no short answer for this question. Here I’ll list a few notable traits that I personally think associate with most of the Vietnamese I know.

Disclaimer 1: “Most of the Vietnamese I know”, not all of the Vietnamese.

Disclaimer 2: Everything listed here is relative to another group I’m familiar with. Please don’t comment things like “you obviously haven’t interacted with [insert another nationality]”.

THE GOOD SIDE

Hospitality. To foreigners, most are generally welcoming and polite. Things like skin colours and races don’t bother them as much (Perhaps unless you are Chinese). They would easily tolerate if a foreigner breached the “code of etiquette”. More and more would approach foreigners for conversation and practicing their English.

Passive. This can be good or bad. Most mind their own business and won’t actively bother or disrupt others. Most don’t want to get into fights or arguments.

Competitive. Seems to contradict with passive . However, a lot of students push very hard. Many would attend top Universities and do well.

Hard-working. Many Vietnamese here work 10 hours a day 7 days a week.

Law-abiding. Overall their crime rate here is low.

THE BAD SIDE

Cunning, greedy, selfish. Have you ever seen someone trying to negotiate the price in McDonald’s? There are many scams. They do many things that are convenient for them without caring what big of a burden they could be on the others. They litter, avoid tax, block the traffic,... Many of them love gossiping, and would do it behind somebody’s back.

Jealous. They are jealous when others do better than them.

Personally I don’t think about Vietnam. If you ask me about Vietnam, the first and last thing I think about is the Vietnam War.

The only place I ever was that was as close to being as HOT was the Panama Canal Zone and Sunny South Texas, where I live. The southern monsoon was something I will never forget. I was not used to rain living here in Texas.
