    I was reading that 25% recently born Korean's have foreign mothers and native fathers.

    I know a lot of the men in rural areas are getting mail-order bribes from SEA and Eastern Europe but didn't think the numbers would be that high.

    Yes but I quit because I couldn't stand the corporate world. Sitting in a gray office all day made me want to blow my brains out. Plus I wouldn't have the freedom I do now.

    Two of my best friends are Vietnamese. Very hard working and their success is due to their parents who taught them that anything is possible in America.

    After the fall of Saigon most Vietnamese went to California, Louisiana and Texas. We have a large Vietnamese community here in New Orleans.

    I hear ya, freelancing is normal in this field, I'm in IT, but work at a small marketing agency right now. I will admit, career wise its good, the constant projects and tight deadlines will improve your career by alot. Its like camp for your career.

    Got my ticket to Hanoi. Staying there for a week. Other than Halong Bay and the Hanoi city itself, what is else there to do around the area?

    I wanted to go to Danang and Hoi An but it's too far.

    Spent months in Vietnam years ago loved it.

    Hanoi is a shit hole. Really didnt like that city. A week is way to long

    IMO further South you go the better it gets Hue is amazing if you can get there. Old imperial capital, castles and shit everywhere and a good party scene.

    Hoi An is one of my favorites.

    ho chi minh city has some intersting things clsoe by (Vietnam War related)

    Also look into going to Cambodia.

    The reason I looked into Hanoi is because two of my friends who spent the better half of a year traveling asia told me Hanoi was their favorite city by far. So a lot of direct flights from Korea to Hanoi. Another option of Danang but I heard it's very touristy and flights are even more expensive due to it being a popular spot for Koreans.

    After my experience, I'll have to decide if I want to visit Vietnam again to check out the south.

    Hanoi is just a big city with no real "awesome" features worth checking out imo. Use it as a gateway for Halong Bay and Sappa but besides that its just meh.

    Way better places in the country.

    Had few vietnames housemates once. Nice people but they nearly drove me insane.

    Their language is one of the worst sounding one I ever heard in my whole life.

    Oh well, it's too late to change it now. I didn't know about Sappa though so I'll look into that.
    What are some good places you recommend though? Like bars or restaurants? Do you think it's relatively safe there?

    I will say DONT walk past government buildings at night, heavily armed guards do not like it. I had to bribe my way out of it because according to them they could of arrested me (probably a scam but I wasnt going to argue with a dude in military clothing carrying an AK47).

    An specifics, hmmm been WAY to long to remember exact places but french quarter is ok for food. an it wont be hard to find a bar theres a lot.

    Go to Madam Tuyets restaurant in Hanoi. Amazing food. It’s like eating in someone’s dining room. Get the steamed fish plate for sure and the glazed chicken takes 45 minutes to cook so you need to order it when you sit down. Everything we ordered was great.
