Hans visits Vietnam as part of a trip around the world for the first time in the early 90th. In 'Culture Clash'' you are taken on a journey through this colourful country.
At his second visit and later as a tour leader working in Vietnam, he will introduce you carefully to the 'invisible' characteristics of this country. Not only the seemingly warm but also the dark side of the colonial-, Vietnam War time and the current government influence in daily life.

Hoi An, business, storms & corruption in Vietnam (part 2)
The 'real face' of Vietnam.

Collision of perception & leaving Vietnam (part 3)
Selling the Lighthouse business and cultural differences which are too difficult to bridge makes Hans decide to leave Vietnam and Linh.
