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.

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.

Hanoi is the capital. Ho Chi Minh City was the capital of South Vietnam and of the whole country before the American-Vietnamese war, and back when it was officially named "Saigon".

Why do you call it the American-Vietnamese war, It is formally known as just the Vietnam War?

They call it that to differentiate it from the war with France, the French-Vietnamese War.

You never accept HCMC for "Ho Chi Min"(h City) either. Which of course you should. You do accept NYC for New York, after all, and it is just as common to use HCMC.

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.

Though it's a completely different type o' dong than the North Koreans try to threaten their neighbors with. Probably overcompensating.

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"!

Can you accept some more type ins for "Pho". Like "bánh phở", "phở" and "banh pho". Please. Also, perhaps when we type in the answers we can't be expected to write with diacritics, but they should be included in the answers when they appear on the screen. It really makes a huge difference if you write á, à or a; ở or o etc.
