Vietnam History and Culture

       Scientists say that Vietnam is one of the earliest cradles of human race. Vietnam, as a nation called Van Lang was formed 4,000 years ago by the Hung kings. Myths said that the Dragon and Fairy met each other, then one bag of hundred eggs was born. In order to control the country easily, fifty of them went up to the mountain with Mother, the Fairy and the other fifty went down to the ocean with Father, the Dragon.
Now, there are 54 groups in all living under the same roof. Vietnam has suffered nearly 1000 years Chinese domination, 100 years French invasion and 20 years American occupation.
However independence and freedom have been the utmost ever long wish that help the Vietnamese gain many victories and now Vietnam is a socialist country
