Scientific Study from the year 2015 in the subject South Asian Studies, South-Eastern Asian Studies, grade: B, , language: English, abstract: Now, the confusion of road traffic in big cities in Vietnam has become serious a large number of motorbikes as well as many cars run on the roads. The living standards have improved around the country. Skyscrapers have been constructed in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Hanoi has a modernized shopping mall looks like Singapore. However, the income disparities between the urban areas and the rural areas are still remarkable, though reduced. I saw squatters in Hanoi some years ago. Heavy inflation is ongoing: though the price of pho ga (chicken rice noodle soup) was 5 thousand dong in 1999, it is about 50 thousand dong in 2014 in Hanoi. This book consists of three chapters. The first chapter describes the experience of visiting Vietnam as a tourist in the late of 1990s. Ho Chi Minh City, with its many pickpockets, motorbike robbers and street girls, was thrilling then. The second chapter is on the Vietnam boom amongst Japanese people (and Japanese businesses) of the early 2000s. What effects will this boom have on the Vietnamese economy, society and culture? The third chapter aims to apply the Japanese study of social class composition to Vietnamese society.

Welcome to a city of eccentricity, lauded throughout world history and throbbing with the iconic and the alternative. Black taxis, red buses, famous clocks, flashing skyscrapers, wine bars tucked down labyrinthine alleys...and thats all within an hour of landing in this chaotic capital. London is mad. From the throngs that gather on tiny Trafalgar Square to the disused toilet cubicles turned into coffee joints, theres something peculiar and bizarre at every turn. Even the breakfasts dont look ℜ is it really possible to start your day with six different fried foods? Mugs of tea with milk, pints of real ale, opulent shopping experiences, grubby atmospheric basements, glorious architectural relics, or graffiti ridden streets...welcome to London and welcome to an incomparable travel experience. But which side of London are you going to see? Perhaps the funky neighborhoods of the East, bursting with vibrant color and pop-up markets. Maybe the elegant townhouses of the West, standing proud in all their Victorian splendor. Of course, few want to miss out on the bright and famous; Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street theater, Westminster flickering over the River Thames... Londons greatest appeal is its diversity. In the space of just two Underground stops you will travel to another borough, a disparate entity in the overarching sphere that calls itself London. Most Londoners never even venture into the center, stoically sticking to the sights of their own local borough. Likewise, most tourists never venture out of Underground Zone 1, missing out on the rich tapestry of culture and experiences that await in the outlying boroughs.
