I'd tend to agree with some of the posters here. My Vietnamese friend even tells me that Vietnamese don't actually trust each other and often keep all of their earnings inside the house, but they do trust (to some extent) their Chinese partners a bit more. My friend has lived in major U.S. Vietnamese communities all his life, so I think his points are more valid than some others.

What do you think about Vietnamese behavior and manners? Similar or much better, or a little better? How would you compare?
I like working with Vietnamese. They're not afraid to have a bit of fun with their work. They speak directly. Nobody's afraid of a bit of hard work. Things are very common sense. You can find trouble if you go looking for it, but most are live and let live. I'd say some of those that are in power (government/church) can display inflexibility, but that's the far minority. Overall I find myself enjoying work with Viet teams.

They do have an amazing work ethic. I think, eventually, they are going to be an economic powerhouse. It's not uncommon to see Vietnamese awake at 5am, selling what looks like a handful of weeds the picked up off the side of the road, and try to sell it all day for the next 16 hours.

Than you take a trip across to somewhere like Cambodia, and you can barely find someone who has enough work ethic in them to take a few minutes to stamp your passport.

I'll have to get back to Vietnam again...2000 and 2002 are the only two times I've been. I'm sure it has changed a lot.

I didn't know Cambodia was like that. I knew like 5 years ago when labor costs were increasing crazy in China, many Taiwan and Mainland businessmen were visiting cheap labor countries like Cambodia to set up factories there. I don't know one who actually did as they said the government wasn't easy to deal with and there was so much red tape.
