Don't think I've ever heard "boat people" before, and missed the name of the river in the capital. Got the rest. Saigon has changed so much in the last 5 years.

We in Australia use the term 'boat people' all the time, these days, as a carry over from Vietnam - to refer to any refugees, regardless of how they arrive (though, clearly this is more than 98% by boat).

That might in part be due to you living on an island.

I'm from Canada, not an island, and boat people was the term that was used back in the 70s and 80s.

Yes, I remember my Dad (who was a baby boomer born in the 50's, so he remembers the flood of refugees after the war pretty well) using the term a lot. Quite a few settled in our home town. I still remember the old guy who used to have the best fish and chips place in town, he wore huge glasses that always looked about to fall off and had a drink fridge that must of been made in the 50's. And a wall clock with Vietnam on it which was how I figured it out when I was a kid...

Drat. Didn't know the currency and didn't think of "boat people". I'm really confused about the capital though; on most of the other quizzes it's Ho Chi Minh City that's listed as capital but here you have Hanoi. Which one is it? Also, I managed to somehow read the last clue as "STALE crop" and therefore missed rice. Lol.

We never list Ho Chi Minh City as the capital of Vietnam on any featured quiz.

maybe you're thinking of the largest city by country quiz that was featured a while back? Though Ho Chi Minh definitely shows up on quizzes on this site more frequently than Hanoi does, if it is ever listed as the capital of Vietnam that's in error, and I don't recall ever seeing such an error on this site.

I'm an American living in Vietnam, so I got 100%. However it was kinda funny that I guessed "Pham" for 2nd most common name, and it filled in the answer "phở"!
