Tan Ky Old House, located at 101 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street in the Old Quarter of Hoi An Ancient Town, is a nearly flawless example of an 18th-century merchant's mansion in this significant commercial port town. Sen hamlet, also known as President Ho Chi Minh's birthplace, is located in Kim Lien Town, Nam Dan, about 20 kilometers from Vinh City. The house was built between 1770 and 1780 by a prominent local family for use as a warehouse; it remains standing to this day.
Ho Chi Minh was born on April 5, 1890. He received his education in French schools during the time of the French rule of Vietnam. When France ceded control of Vietnam to Japan, Ho Chi Minh moved to Japan to study law. In 1919, he returned to Vietnam and initiated the movement that led to Vietnamese independence from France. After several years of political activism, he formed a government in 1945. This government was defeated by French forces a year later, but Ho Chi Minh was able to escape to China where he established contact with Communist leaders. In 1949, he returned to Vietnam and began another revolution which resulted in the formation of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1955. He died in 1969.
Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam).
In addition to being the country's largest city and economic center, Ho Chi Minh City also functions as a global trade hub with offices for numerous international companies.
The city is also becoming an important cultural center, hosting many museums and concert halls.
It has been estimated that between 1975 and 1999, nearly 5 million people moved to Saigon under military rule, making it the most populated city in Vietnam during this time period. After the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975, another 2 million residents arrived to become modern-day citizens of Ho Chi Minh City.
As one of Vietnam's most advanced cities, many large buildings are being constructed in Ho Chi Minh City today. The Dao Tan Hotel, for example, is a luxury hotel being built at Phu My Street and Ly Tu Trong Boulevard.
Ho Chi Minh was born on May 19, 1890, in the town of Nguyen Sinh Cung in central Vietnam (then part of French Indochina). He obtained work as a chef aboard a French steamer in 1911 and spent the following several years at sea, going to Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom, among other places. In 1919, he joined the revolutionary movement against the French rule of Vietnam and was soon appointed director of propaganda for the Vietnamese Communist Party. The party was banned in 1930, but it continued to operate secretly until 1945, when it was declared official again. In 1949, Ho Chi Minh became president of North Vietnam.
His political career had taken him from rural poverty to fame and fortune, but it also had many failures. For example, in 1927 he tried to bring about a revolution in South Vietnam but was defeated by one of his own followers. In 1929, he was imprisoned for six years.
In 1945, just a few months before the end of World War II, France agreed to withdraw its support for the unpopular government of South Vietnam and to recognize the independence of that country. However, French troops remained in South Vietnam until 1954, when they were finally forced out by a coalition of Vietnamese rebels led by Ho Chi Minh. That same year, North Vietnam and South Vietnam signed a treaty of friendship and cooperation. But North Vietnam refused to accept the result of the South Vietnamese election in 1955 and continued to fight against South Vietnam, which caused another war between them from 1960 to 1975.
The name comes from the city's previous name when it was part of the French colony of Cochin-China prior to the reunification of north and south Vietnam. The most recent census in Ho Chi Minh City occurred in 2009, making it impossible to ascertain the city's actual population. However, it is believed that there are more than 12 million people living in HCMC province.
The name "Ho Chi Minh City" was originally used by only one district within the city but was later adopted by all districts. This naming convention was first used in 1955 during the French colonization of Vietnam when the district was named after Vietnamese nationalist leader Ho Chi Minh. In 1975, following the fall of Saigon, the district was renamed in honor of President Nixon but was again changed back to Ho Chi Minh City in 1987.
Men prefer it because it is easier to dance with a partner. Women like it because it gives them an opportunity to show off their moves!
Women's skin tone varies depending on their body type. Fat cells absorb more sunlight than muscle tissue so women with more fat stores will have darker skin than those with less fat. The color of women's skin also depends on their ethnicity.
Ho Chi Minh's Childhood. In 1918, he joined the Vietnamese revolutionary movement against French rule and was soon appointed director of propaganda for the organization then known as the Viet Nam Doc Lap Dong Quan Bao (Vietnam Independence League).
His career as a political activist and leader of the Vietnamese revolution began in 1919. By this time, the French had defeated the last Vietnamese army to resist them and were conducting a campaign of repression against the independence movement. In 1920, Ho Chi Minh was arrested and sentenced to death for treason but was granted a royal pardon by his former employer, the French colonial ruler. He went into exile in China but returned to Vietnam in 1926. That same year, he was elected president of the Vietnamese Nationalist Party (VNA) and led its forces in an unsuccessful rebellion against French rule. After several more attempts at revolt, all of which were defeated, he focused on building a national identity through writing and oratory and trying to win support from other countries. The French recognized him as their official leader in 1930 and withdrew their troops from Vietnam the next year under the terms of the Treaty of Paris.
