The first recorded proof of chocolate as a food product goes back to Pre-Columbian Mexico. The Mayans and Aztecs had been recognized to make a drink known as “Xocoatll from the beans of the cocoa tree. In 1528, the conquering Spaniards returned to Spain with chocolate still consumed as a beverage. The same chocolate drink was brought to a royal wedding in France in 1615, and England welcomed chocolate in 1662. Up to now “chocolate” as we spell in the present day, had been spelled variously as “chocalatall, “jocolatte”, “jacolatte”, and “chockelet.

 

In 1847, Fry & Sons in England launched the first “eating chocolate,” however didn’t appeal to much attention because of its bitter taste. In 1874, Daniel Peter, a famed Swiss chocolateer, experimented with varied mixtures in an effort to balance chocolates rough taste, and finally stumbled upon that abundant product — milk. This changed everything and chocolate’s acceptance after that was quick and enthusiastic. Soon it became well liked by young and old alike.

In Vietnam, there are four international airports in total. If you would like a direct flight, for instance from the U.S. or Europe to Vietnam, you may either fly to HCMC (with the largest airport, the Tan Son Nhat International Airport) or to Hanoi (with the second biggest one, the Noi Bài International Airport).

 

Alternatively, you may take a flight to China, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, South Korea, Japan or Singapore, and get a connecting flight to Vietnam:
Da Nang has an International Airport (flights from/to Seoul/South Korea, Bangkok/Thailand, Singapore).
Can Tho Airport in South Vietnam offers international service, too (flights from/to Bangkok/Thailand, Tokyo/Japan, Phnom Penh/Cambodia).

 

Phu Quoc Island now has its own International Airport. For those who buy a ticket for a flight to Vietnam in a nearby country, you may get it for half the price of a Vietnam Airlines’ flight. Nevertheless, throughout holidays will probably be hard to get a reservation. Particularly during Tet it is best to make reservations in advance. You may as well travel into Vietnam overland or on the waterway from one of many adjacent countries.
