Farming in Vietnam
Common Animals: Cattle, sheep, pigs, fish, many similar animals as the US
Commonly Consumed Foods: Bánh canh (a noodle dish), rice cakes, seafood dishes, and vegetables and beef soups are common. They as well have desserts like chocolates, banana cakes, doughnuts and more. A popular dish in the south is cha tom (shrimp wrapped in sugarcane) which sounds like an odd combination to me that many people may actually find intriguing.Farming Method: "Slash and Burn" is commonly used to clear large areas for farm land, unlike the us who is large enough and with enough land to be put aside for farming. They as well cut hill sides into layers to allow for more farming space and allowing water to run down the hill sides irrigating the crops.
