Vietnam Independence Day presents an unmissable opportunity to enjoy some spectacular Vietnamese cuisine. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is celebrated because of the freshness of the dishes made.

On September 2nd 1945 Ho Chi Minh took to a podium in Hanoi, and declared independence from the French. It was a bold, bold action that sparked a decades long war for Independence and the death of million of citizens.

The Vietnamese lost millions in a 30 year war for independence. It has left them fiercly patriotic and proud to be an independent nation.
