Following 2,000 years of Chinese dominance, Vietnam gained independence in the 10th century, ushering in more than 800 years of dynastic rule, followed by French colonization in 1887. After the turbulent independence movement of the mid 20th century, this exotic country is now being embraced by the world for its open approach to business and tourism.
