Vietnam Idol

The most watched Vietnam idol video on Youtube. This casting happened in 2013 and the song is called ‘em cua ngay hom wa’ which means along the line of ‘my yesterday’s girl’. Music knows no barrier and you can judge for yourself that the singing wasn’t great. Even the judges’ comments were negative. Must be the cute boy look that given it some many views. Haha! :D

Paint it Black by The Rolling Stones

Used the filter function on Youtube to find video on Vietnam with the most views and found clip. This is actually a song by the Rolling Stones named Paint It Black. If you are looking to visit Vietnam, do not forget about the Vietnam food tour.

The author in this channel has the following below to say:

Paint it Black by The Rolling Stones, accompanied by footage of the Vietnam War. (The link into the side describing it for a Beastie Boys Song is WRONG, YouTube automatically set that when the video was uploaded, I haven’t control over it.) I recognize this is a sensitive video, but please, keep any “nasty” comments to yourself or discuss elsewhere, this is much cherished. Such comments will be removed, and after multiple cases you will be blocked from the video. For do not wish to watch, move along leaving it at that. Note that the song is NOT the “theme song” with this particular war (or anything of that sort), rather just a song to play with the footage. At no point was it ever intended to be the “theme song” from the Vietnam War.

Vietnam war videos

Today, instead of the usual happy videos on tourism or food, I want to switch gear a little by showing you war videos. Many of them are sad but they are a part of the Vietnam history.

This six-hour series, narrated by actor Michael C. Hall, provides viewers with the sights, sounds and stories of the Vietnam War in a way provides not been done previously. “Vietnam in HD” features rare footage, most of which was shot by soldiers in action, that has been restored and transferred to high definition to give viewers a clearer examine the battles than previous programs had about the Vietnam War. The involving the video footage and gripping first-person accounts from 13 individuals whose lives were forever changed by their wartime experiences presents viewers with a very inidvidual TV experience.

Mekong Delta

Another great video by the New Atlantis. This time it’s on the almighty Mekong River! Enjoy! :D

The Mekong is one of the great rivers of the world. Born at 5000 meters altitude in the Tibetan Plateau and after crossing China, Burma, Thailand, enters in Laos and Cambodia to die in the China Sea, South of Vietnam.

Laos, Cambodia and southern Vietnam are the site where develops this episode, which aims to show the reality of these three countries and how the Mekong River is central to the life of its people.

Anam mountains, in Laos, welcoming Ekor Tribe. Until then the cameras have moved the program to capture the new year celebration, its leisurely way of life and respect for the environment in their daily work.

Following the path of spirituality that the river leaves behind in this place, are the temples pagodas and monasteries where youth are initiated into the monkhood and show the subtle balance between the religious world and the secular world.

In Cambodia you still can guess the splendor of the ancient Khmer empire in the refined ruins of a civilization that was able to create a complex system of canals and levees for intensive rice cultivation.

But the country is marked by a recent past of violence. The documentary features testimonies about the concentration camps that killed off a third of the population, and analyzes the problem of a land planted of bombs and mines that produce a staggering 10 amputations a day.

The delta of the nine dragons is the Vietnamese name given to the river where it flows into the South China Sea. Here 5000 channels carry water to the rice fields.

In Sang, the largest city in the delta, where the river dies, the Li family, wealthy fish merchants, offers insight into the hectic life of this population sustained by the Mekong River.
