“The first impression of Vietnam has been always in my mind until now. At the first seconds, my initial concept of Vietnam, a land suffering a lot of wars with memories of the previous 25 years totally vanish.

The screen was pulled up and an ancient Asia was revealed: fascinating, mysterious and impressive”.
