Vietnam and common culture shock

Obviously, Culture shock is unavoidable when we move to a new terrain with many stages of feelings: frustration, adjustment and acceptance. Having experience in cooperation with expats, Vinh Guru Team would love to list something completely different from foreign culture in order to give essential information about Vietnam’s culture for people to get on well with this problem. 

1. Motorbikes Everywhere

According to data from some real Vietnam articles, approximately 40 millions registered vehicles , particularly motorbikes (around half of total population in Vietnam). In big cities, such as Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh city’s residents easily get caught in peak hours of day. Using honks and seeming to not follow any regulations is common in Vietnam. In this case, please follow the flow of people to avoid being struck on the road.  

2. Language Barrier

When we move to any country in the world, language is such a terrible obstacle with foreigners. In Vietnam, alphabet uses the Latin script, based on its employment in the alphabets of Romance languages, with some digraphs and the addition of nine accent marks or diacritics – four of them to create additional sounds, and the other five to indicate the tone of each word. As a result, each tone creates each unique meaning which is really hard to learn, remember and pronounce as well. 

3. Delicious Fresh Food but creepy

Vietnam is well-known with street food due to its pricing and quality. However, if you are nature lover and want to go to some places which are off the beaten path in Vietnam, particularly Nghe An, the traditional cuisine will make you amazed such as Silkworm’s Pupa, Ant soup, Scorpions, …

4. Harsh Weather 

Vietnam’s climate, because it’s in the tropics and strongly influenced by the South China Sea, has a monsoon-influenced tropical climate typical of that of mainland Southeast Asia. Especially in summer, the temperature outside can get 40° to 45° at noon. In the period of global warming, the weather in Vietnam is not the best condition to travel in summertime, unless you book a hotel with a nice pool!

Blog

In Vietnam, tourists will be overwhelmed by abundant delicious dishes with a large number of nutrients. For many locals, this includes dishes prepared with a wide variety of creatures, even insects.

Today, Vinh Guru’s blog is going to show several weird cuisines existing in some areas in Nghe An.  

  1. Silkworm’s Pupa 

An exotic meal is prepared from silkworm pupa after the silk is taken from its cocoon. The dish is a bit shocking at the first look, but your perception may change after you enjoy its buttery taste as it is melting in your mouth. When talking about eating larva, most of the people are still hesitant, but whoever has had the chance will want to enjoy it one more time. Not only the good taste, but also it contains quite a lot of good nutrients for human health, can promote children’s growth, and is antirachitic (prevents constipation).

  1. Ant soup

Basically, it is the same as other soups, however, it is cooked with eggs and ants. 

This dish is only in the Thai community in Western Nghe An. The red ant that lives only in broad canopy trees, along streams or in old forests is the important ingredient. With a sweet and sour taste, ant egg soup is also a cooling dish in the hot summer days of Thai people.

  1. Scorpions

All scorpions have a venomous sting, but the vast majority of the species do not represent a serious threat to humans. In most cases, healthy adults do not need any medical treatment after being stung. With the unique taste and master skills of locals, scorpions become a local specialty of the Nghe An.

  1. Tadpoles

Tadpoles are a favorite dish of the ethnic minorities in Nghe An. Tadpoles can be an ingredient in a lot of dishes such as sour soup with bamboo, sausage, and others. This is a traditional cuisine prepared by Kho Mu people for their guests.

Despite the strange and creepy initial appearance, these dishes still are a part of our featured culture and make a lasting  with tourists. Let’s try and discover them with Vinh Guru.
