The Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain revisited Vietnam yet again on the last episode of No Reservations. Bourdain fell in love with Vietnam the first time he visited it and likens his feelings to “when you meet the love of your life for the first time.” Bourdain’s book, A Cook’s Tour, is often called his love letter to Vietnam.
Whether he is serious or not about moving there next year (he seems serious), it really reminds you of how great Vietnam is. Great food, beautiful scenery, and a rich history. I find myself feeling very proud when I see Vietnam on a national stage in such good light. For a long time Vietnam has been over shadowed by stories of the war, but perhaps it’s time for the country’s rich culture and beauty to take the stage.
Speaking of great food, I’ll leave you with some images of Vietnam’s cuisines that will make your eyes hungry.
