Vietnam is the perfect tourist destination for the adventurous traveler ready to chow down on bowls of spicy noodles, study history, get their feet wet in rivers and rice paddies, and hike in the gorgeous jungles.Cuisine
Vietnamese cooking is spicy in the south, mild in the north, and tasty wherever you go. The national dish, called pho, is a clear broth soup with rice noodles and studded with meat and vegetables. Pho is served with herbs, chiles, and other condiments on the side that you can add to the soup to your tastes. Pho is not only the national dish, but also a fast food staple. Street side restaurants keep broth simmering and noodles at the ready to serve bowls of delicious pho to Vietnamese and travelers in need of a quick meal.
French influence remains today in Vietnamese cuisine today with items like the baguette, excellent pastries, and a taste for coffee. All of these dishes were introduced to Vietnam by the French but have since been incorporated into Vietnamese cuisine.
