    Mekong Delta Vietnam (Exotic Asian Waterworld ) - Travel Video.
    DVD. On Tour. 26 Minutes. With its small canals and wide creeks, the Mekong Delta in South Vietnam is as multifaceted and contradictory as the country itself. Covering 39,000 square kilometres it is the third largest delta in the world. My Tho is one of the delta's most charming cities and an area with a long and colourful history. It was the Chinese who first settled in this area in 1697 and who were responsible for the subsequent historical development of My Tho.Most of the smaller islands in the Mekong Delta contain fertile soil thus over the years the delta has developed into an agricultural area. Today around 22 million people live in Nam Bo of which the huge Mekong Delta is at the very heart. In the wider sections of the Mekong, that is also known as The Nine-Headed Dragon Of Cuu Long, ferries operate from bank to bank.Large ferries cross the Song Hau Giang, the most southern creek of the Mekong whose source is in Tibet, some 4,000 kilometres distant. Situated at the central junction of seven canals is the floating market of Phung Hiep, an intriguing experience. The colourful antics of the various market traders is particularly fascinating and it is not surprising that this market is one of the most photographed locations in South Vietnam. In search of hungry customers, tiny floating restaurants make their way between the various busy market traders. The Mekong Delta - colourful, exotic, fascinating - and always a surprise!

    Mekong Delta Vietnam - Travel Video.
    DVD. Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes. The extensive delta of the great Mekong River in South Vietnam is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable natural habitats in the whole of South East Asia. The dense vegetation on the river banks and brown-colored water of the Mekong, with its innumerable creeks, are the main characteristics of this, the third largest delta in the world. The estuary covers a total area of around 39,000 square kilometres and only the deltas of the Amazon and the Brahmaputra are larger. The immense value of this fertile land has been appreciated for many years as the Mekong Delta yields two to three rice harvests a year. For several centuries, the Mekong has been well-renowned for its fish. It also contains a number of rare species such as the Pla Buk, the `king of fish', as it is known by the local people. For the local population, the Giant Mekong Catfish is an almost legendary creature, although sightings of it are few and far between. The simplicity of the everyday life of the Delta's inhabitants is clearly visible and is a further fascination of this intriguing region.

    North Vietnam - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. In colonial times the Europeans referred to North Vietnam as Tongking. Today the Vietnamese people call it, Bac Bo. Hanoi is North Vietnam's lively capital city. It was here that in 1882 the French created their administrative headquarters and main capital city. Compared to other southeast Asian cities that have developed into modern metropolis' at breathtaking speed, Hanoi could be described as being a provincial city. The Hoh Chi Minh Museum, a three storey concrete building, was inaugurated in May 1990 to commemorate Hoh's one hundredth birthday. Den Dao Quan is one of the most beautiful Taoist temples in Vietnam and an oasis of tranquillity. It is a place dedicated to the worship of benevolent spirits and for those who believe in divine and spiritual natural powers. Haiphong is the most important industrial harbour town in North Vietnam and has a population of one and a half million. Under French rule thousands of workers built this city at record speed and the harbour was enlarged, making it the largest in Indo China. Hoa Binh is one of the north's less attractive provincial towns but this, the former centre of a prehistoric Bronze Age culture on the Black River, is the gateway to the mountains of the north. Located within a remote and mountainous landscape, the village of Ban Lac Thai is a peaceful place set within an elevated and fertile valley. It is believed that the Viet are related to the Thai people and originally separated from the Muong tribe when they cultivated the Red River Delta. Everywhere the Thai folk offer hand made arts and crafts for sale such as knitted blankets, woven cloth and numerous bags. From the nostalgic capital of Hanoi as far as the mountain tribes of the north, North Vietnam is a country of charm and beauty with natural wonders and ancient cultures full of age-old traditions and new hope for the future!

    Saigon Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Saigon, an exotic trading post of bygone times, derived its name from the banks of the river upon which it is located. In 1859 the French arrived and transformed it into the capital of French colonial Indochina. With nearly six million inhabitants Saigon is also known as Ho Chi Minh City and, although large, is no longer the capital of Vietnam. Following the eventual withdrawal of both the French and the Americans the city has prospered once again with a lively trading spirit and a special flair that has helped it to become known as, The Paris Of The East. The Post Office, a mighty colonial building of 1883, highlights the splendour of old Europe and with its colourful glass windows and cast iron gratings and balustrades it is more like a European train station. The History Museum was built in 1929 according to Neo-Vietnamese design and features a large range of fascinating exhibits from each epoch of the country's history. Statues, pottery and other artefacts of various epochs are on display in various atmospheric rooms and they range from the Bronze Age culture of the Dong Son to the Funan, Chenla, Khmer and Cham periods as well as various Vietnamese dynasties. Although past, present and future live side-by-side in this richly cosmopolitan city, today Saigon is experiencing a massive property boom and its city centre premiums now match those of both Singapore and Jakarta. Saigon's dramatic past began with it being a small fishing village followed by its development as the `Paris Of The East' and then as an American garrison city until it eventually became South Vietnam's modern metropolis of today.

    Hue Vietnam - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. On the shores of the `Perfume River', the Song Huong Giang in the heart of Vietnam, is the former royal city and today's provincial capital of Hu?. Nine mighty canon are the symbolic guards of the historic citadel and beyond its defensive walls are five hundred hectares that contain the Imperial City and also the Forbidden Purple City, a veritable city within a city. The rise of Hu? into a magnificent residence is closely associated with the Nguyen royal family who influenced the city for many centuries. A short boat trip on the Perfume River leads to another of the city's attractions. Located on a hill, legend has it that the Thien Mu Pagoda owes its existence to the appearance of a god disguised as an old woman. The story goes that the woman made a prophecy that a new king would come and build an important pagoda for the gods. King Nyguen Hoang interpreted this prophecy as a religious symbol and thus had a pagoda built in honour of the divine old woman. Despite all the destruction of the Vietnam War the resplendent old capital city on Perfume River is still a remarkable place to be.

    Hoian Vietnam - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Today it is difficult to believe that three hundred years ago the tiny dreamy harbour of Hoi An was one of the most important seaports in Vietnam. Now only small fishing boats lie at anchor in the harbour yet in former times Hoi An experienced a flourishing trade with Europe. Whether on the riverbanks of the Thu Bon, the narrow streets or the fascinating shops, Hoi An has retained the colorful atmosphere of bygone times. Life continued here as normal until in the early 1990's the tourist industry began to develop in Vietnam. The city's new found prosperity has not yet reached the entire city but it is reflected in some of its buildings. Many of the city's meeting halls, temples and homes are of typical Chinese design. Both the Quan Am Temple and the Quang-Cong Temple date back to the 17th century. Toward the end of the 17th century an increasing number of Chinese merchants settled in the city and this gave rise to the construction of several splendid meeting halls. Business relationships were cultivated in these traditional communal buildings and new friendships made, information exchanged and ancestors and gods worshipped. Once again the town is beginning to prosper and the historic ambience of this intriguing city may well mark a new beginning to the inhabitants of Hoi An.

    DVD. On Tour. 26 Minutes. The famous train S1 leads through both Central and South Vietnam, one of the most fascinating countries in South East Asia.

    In The Land Of The Rising Dragon - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. Vietnam is one of the most fascinating countries in South East Asia and it contains a large number of cultural treasures as well as much remarkable scenery. Due to its exceptional buildings of both past and present, as well as its magnificent natural scenery, Vietnam surprises everyone that travels to this region of Asia. Vietnam's former capital of Thang Long, that means `Rising Dragon', is now known as Hanoi. Like all cities in South East Asia, Hanoi has an increasing traffic problem but to compensate for this it also contains several parks. Early in the morning a number of Tai Chi enthusiasts are to be found within a park that surrounds the Hoan Kiem Lake in the centre of the city. The picturesque lake and park are the green lungs of Hanoi and are a relaxing contrast to the lively atmosphere of the city and its three million inhabitants. According to ancient records the imperial area of Hu? once consisted of one hundred and thirty six buildings. The rapid rise of what had once been a rather unimportant town to a new and magnificent imperial city has always been indelibly associated with Vietnam's Nguyen royal family who were to influence the country for several centuries. Both architecturally and culturally Hoi An has been influenced by two countries, China and Japan. The influence of the Chinese is clearly visible even today and they bequeathed a large number of magnificent buildings such as temples and meeting halls. On the western shores of the Saigon River is Ho Chi Minh City, the former capital of Saigon. This, the largest and most populated city in Vietnam, has around six million inhabitants a fact well substantiated by the exceptionally busy streets of this southern metropolis. Vietnam's people are both amicable and extremely hospitable and now it is surely time that they deserve to see their Land Of The Rising Dragon enjoy a further epoch of peace and prosperity.

    Ha Long Bay Vietnam - Travel Video.
    DVD. Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes. South of the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, in the Gulf of Tonking, there is a large bay with more than 1,600 islands, the Bay of Ha Long. The rich vegetation that covers the rocks acts as both a shelter and a home for a great variety of wildlife, including 40 species of bird and 8 varieties of reptile. The strangely formed islands attract biologists from all over the world. The latest Stone Age discoveries date back more than 8,000 years and it is believed that the region was inhabited around 25,000 years ago. The region's bizarrely formed rocks fired the imagination of those who lived here in ancient times and several of the islands have colorful names, most of which were inspired by the animal kingdom, such as 'Camel Island', 'Turtle Island' and the historic 'Driftwood Grotto'. The 1,500 square kilometres of the Bay of Ha Long are one of the most impressive locations in the whole of South East Asia, a place of total beauty and one of the world's great natural wonders.
