Vietnamese bonsai. I visited Hanoi during the APEC time. There were many exhibitions to introduce Vietnamese culture to the APEC members and other foreigners. There were several displays of Vietnamese bonsai that is different from the traditional Japanese bonsai. Both Vietnamese and Japanese bonsai were derived from the Chinese. The Vietnamese bonsai (Cay canh) is closed to the Chinese penjing (potted landsacape) than the Japanese bonsai (potted tree). They all require a lot of time and patience. Bonsai is an art of relaxation, try to own one if you can.
