Vietnam - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Vietnam is sometimes called the "jewel of southeast Asia," and for good reason. It comes from the country's natural beauty, as well as the beauty of its people and customs. As you will learn, religion and tradition are very important parts of Vietnamese culture.
 
2     There are three main religions in Vietnam. They are Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism. Peace with oneself and others is an important part of all three, but there are important differences between them, too.
 
3     Buddhism is the largest religion in Vietnam. It involves the worship of the god Buddha and the respect of his teachings. At one point in Vietnam's history, it was the official religion. It isn't the official religion anymore, but it is still the most popular.
