Why so many Russians in Vietnam?
« on: February 08, 2018, 07:42:36 AM »
The number is almost 1 million each year with a substantial choosing to stay permanently and most of the action revolves around Nha Trang.  Soon it will be a Russian enclave.  In contrast, there are less than 30,000 Vietnamese people in the whole of Russia. This is filmed in January 2018.

There are Chinese, Korean, and Japanese enclave in VN too.  I'm not sure if it's a good thing as you might begin to see Vietnamese being excluded from those communities.

Globalization has come to Vietnam.  People from Vietnam are still surprised to meet a random white or black guy who speaks Vietnamese.  In 20 years, no one will give a shiet.  It´s like Hispanics in America are still shocked when I walk into a Latino restaurant and order ropa vieja in Spanish. 

That said, there are few things at play here and we can see where Vietnam is going by just observing countries like Korea and Japan.  Foreigners who come to these countries rarely get rich.  They must make money under the rules set by the government which is made up entirely of Vietnamese.  This is very different to Vietnamese enclave in the West.  I mean Vietnamese people in Cali and TX enclaves with large Vietnamese population now make more money than the average white person living close by.  In other words, Western societies allow us to flourish while Asian societies are hindering even to ethnic natives.  We see the Koreans building special enclaves for themselves in Saigon but they are outnumbered and this can´t go on forever since S. Korea will decline just like Japan.
