Ho Chi Minh City— Thirty-five years after the war's end, many people still associate Vietnam with conflict, not beauty.
But this country, one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, has experienced massive changes over the last few decades. Since Vietnam ended its self-imposed isolation in 1986, there has been a substantial and ongoing liberalization of the country's economy and social freedoms. What's more, foreign investments are pouring into the country, and its very young population's income levels are rising.
