International Chains in Vietnam

circle KWhile traveling through Vietnam, it seems strange to encounter an American chain like KFC when otherwise surrounded by small local restaurants. There aren’t many, but these chains do have a visible presence in larger places like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh city. McDonalds, Burger King, Popeye’s, and Circle K have all invaded Vietnam! At the same time, however, there are the all-to-common stores selling ‘The North Face’ clothes and gear at prices that seem waaay to low to believe – because they are too low to believe. Fake clothes and bags (among other things) are quite the moneymakers in Vietnam!
