The West has long had a fascination with Vietnam; and yet this fascination has focused some much on the war that the reality of contemporary Vietnam and its culture is all but obscured.
In this thoughtful, informative and very personal account of a journey from Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta to Hanoi and Halong Bay, Zoe Schramm-Evans delves behind the clichť-ridden images of Vietnam, to discover a country poised on the brink of the most remarkable social and economic change. On her journey she meets former Viet Cong fighters, students, journalists, civil servants, street children, prostitutes, entrepreneurs and, of course, fellow travellers.
Throughout her travels she observes with humour, and occasional despair, the energy, the excitement, the struggles and the sometimes surreal juxtapositions of old and new, East and West, which are Vietnam.
