From : travelingeast 1. Vietnam is the largest exporter of cashews in the world, and the second largest exporter of rice. 2. Instead of bells, traditional gongs are used to call the Vietnamese children to school. 3. Although Vietnam is a developing country, it has a literacy rate of 94%. 4. Among all developing countries, Vietnam has one of the lowest unemployment rates. 5. You can find a B52 American Bomber Wreck in Vietnam’s West Lake. 6. An estimated ten million motor bikes travel on the roads of Vietnam every day. 7. Ruou ran (snake wine), a Vietnamese specialty of rice wine with a pickled snake inside, allegedly can cure any sickness. 8. The most common surname in Vietnam is Nguyen. 9. The Vietnamese keep potbelly pigs as pets. 10.The Vietnamese language has six different tones. A change in tone changes the meaning of the word. This makes their language somewhat difficult to learn.
Awww, Tap! I'm so sorry. I had no idea you tagged me. I didn't get the notification. Seriously, I need to write to Vingle because it happens all the time. (>_<) Okay, I will get to work and let you know some fun facts. I'll tag you. :D Also, these are some fascinating facts about Vietnam. I knew a few, but the others are all new things I've learned. (^_^)
@Tapsamai thank you for the attempt of making me feel better about snakes but I hate theme ahhhhhhh nooooooooo :D
@ouahoo sorrryyy !! I did not mean to make you have nightmare :( I am really sorry for that !! But as I read somewhere, if in your dream, you see a snake, it does not mean it is a nightmare. It would give you some good hope in the future ;)
@Tapsamai well thanks to you I had a snake nightmare last night :-s
@Tapsamai nope I never ever think to even look at a snake, even the thought of theme give me nightmares, I'm not exaggerating, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night I check under my bed if there's one even if there are no snakes where I live it's a phobia, there must be an interpretation to this, I also hate lizards, almost all crawling thing ( ahhhhhhhhhh scream lol)
