Attention! On the pages of Our planet, we (the authors and editors of the website) always try to stick to a neutral objective point of view, giving only the narrative places or events in our guidebooks. The information below are personal point of view, because we see no other way to answer the question – "how in Vietnam are Russian?". We apologize in advance if this point of view has offended or hurt the feelings of the inhabitants of Vietnam.

Tourists from Russia and other Russian-speaking countries of the former USSR should not expect special treatment by the Vietnamese. Some naively believe that the people of Vietnam will be more friendly and kind to them, remembering the warm friendship between the two countries and the Soviet Union in hard times. Unfortunately, all is long forgotten by the older generation. New and quite unfamiliar to the younger generation. You can even find Vietnamese, who do not know what Russia and especially the Soviet Union. Yes, imagine, we met locals who traditionally were interested in where we came from but could not understand what it is, "rashia", "RUSIA", "Russia", "Moscow", "Putin".

And this is manifested not only in a personal relationship of Vietnamese to Russian tourists, but also on cultural and state level. For example, in the museums of Vietnam, although you can find many artifacts from the times of the Soviet Union and even Russia (mostly military equipment), but almost no information about the fact that it was fraternal assistance. Anyway, sometimes one gets the impression that the story about the participation of the USSR on the side of the Vietnam conflict with the United States is deliberately glossed over. But with all that in museums you can see many exhibitions about the heroic deeds of the soldiers of the U.S. army, and postwar fraternization with the Americans, who, by the way, almost wiped Vietnam off the face of the earth.


In the end, the attitude towards Russian and Russian-speaking tourists in Vietnam are in most cases neutral and is the same as for all other foreign visitors, although very rarely, you can meet and overt negative attitude. In Vietnamese there is even a term for naive tourists that can and should cheat to get more money out of them, and most often he refers to the Russian.

If you have a different opinion and experience on this matter, we will be glad if you share them in the comments or on the forum at the bottom of this page. Just do not confuse the attitude of the Vietnamese towards tourists and Russians who settled in this country for permanent residence. It's a completely different thing.

Hello! I'm shopping full 0 and do not quite understand what it means "factory of things", but in Ho Chi Minh city can be taritsya:

the lanes around the market Bintan in the evenings, there are many shops offer;
on the market in the Cholon district of Cholon (to go quite far from the tourist area, on bus # 1).
Walk from the tourist area easy access to Sagon Tax Trade Center, Saigon Square. There are still there large shopping centers in the area, now all of not remember the name.
