Steeped in a history of powerful dynasties, diverse religious traditions, and political transformations, Vietnam is changing by leaps and bounds. A hopeful current is buzzing throughout much of the country, and it's a thrill to watch the chaos and order play out their yin and yang amidst honking horns, noodle stands, tranquil rice fields, French-colonial remnants and glass high-rises. The country is racing into modernity, with the revered "Uncle" Ho Chi Minh's influence being challenged by the likes of Colonel Sanders. Yet ancient traditions endure, the arts are once again flourishing, and the cuisine is so good it's worth a trip just to try the banh khoai.
