Vietnamese people eat dogs and cats
This is probably the weirdest thing about Vietnam. Dogs and cats are very popular to eat in this country. Vietnamese claims that the best meat is from the young dog. The older the dog is, the more tough and gristly its meat is. They also said that every dog breed tastes differently.
In Vietnam, Dogs are raised at home where they live with people and when they are about two years old, they are killed and eaten. It’s also worth to know that Vietnamese buy stray dogs from other Asian countries like Thailand only to eat them.
Not every Vietnamese eat dogs. Some of them treat dogs and cats as pets. They must take very good care of them- kidnapping and killing animals is very common in Vietnam.
Vietnam is famous from weird drinks
Snake wine is a very popular drink in Vietnam. This drink is prepared by putting a whole snake and scorpion or just a snake into the bottle and than pour the rice wine into it.
The best liquor is from the venomous snake. Its venom is denatured by the ethanol so it is harmless.
Vietnam is a spiritual country
Vietnam, like many Asian countries, largely follows Buddhism, and as a result, you’ll find countless beautifully decorated temples and shrines across the country, everywhere from subterranean caves to mountain peaks.
Vietnam has sun all year round
There is literally never a bad time to visit Vietnam.
It also has high altitude destinations where the weather is downright cold. When you’ve had enough of chilly mountain air, you can head to the southern lowlands for tropical temperatures and plenty of sunshine.
