Vietnam is in constant growth, with over 90 million inhabitants and frantic expansion in the two main cities of Ho Chi Minh in the South and in the Northern capital of Hanoi. Despite rapid urban expansion, approximately 70% of the population still live in rural areas with families holding strong ties to their ancestral homelands. Vietnam is a fast-paced country on a dynamic journey towards a more conspicuous consumerist culture. Its a place I found the people regard hard-work, fun, balance and meditation in equal measure.
