Relationships

Vietnamese people are known for their great characteristics such as honesty, respectfulness, and humility. They're also willing to get on well with others and build strong relationships.

More importantly, the young always respect their parents and older people. On a broader scale, people try to make friends and keep harmonious social relations with neighbors and colleagues, to name a few.
