District Eight

Welcome to Vietcetera!

We’re a consortium of artists, writers, designers, photographers, musicians, technologists, and business people dedicated to a fresh look at an evolving Vietnam.

Vietcetera seeks to find the untold human stories of the people that are contributing to a new, modern Vietnam. From design to business to architecture to film. We want to both give a new and youthful take on Vietnam that both local and foreigners can appreciate.

At the same time, Vietcetera provides practical information and guidance on how to navigate Vietnam’s mysterious waters. This includes basic things like finding top notch restaurants and discovering the best places to stay in Vietnam.
