McDonald's coming to Vietnam

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Heard today from someone who's father works for the government in Hanoi that the Golden Arches will be opening in HCMC in April 2008. via Lonely Planet

well.. with all the good food Vietnam has to offer, I'd doubt they would be breaking a sweat because there is no Mcdonalds. Besides being a potential cash cow, what's brought to the table doesn't have any upsides to it. You could say the same about KFC etc. that has already made it into the country. At all cost, Vietnam should prevent Mcdonalds from manipulating the country. The seems to have a strong influence to almost everywhere else in the world as if it was a monoply. It's ridiculous. Mcdonalds should just save it with there flashy "we care" donations and charities because they've done more damage than good. These are just a mask of disguise for what's really happening here. In short, NO THANKS on GOLDEN "cash cow, unhealthy, bad habit, diseise causing" ARCHES

Why is everyone so scared of McDonald's coming to Vietnam? People should have a choice where they want to eat. Much the same as those that don't chose to eat Vietnamese food they should have options albeit McDonald's could and should be one of them. I think it's fear that the local roadkill that's served up will lose favor and people will opt for a sanitized choice without fear of who knows what in their bowls!

mcdonalds is great if you don't mind getting fat and clogging your arteries...have you watched "super size me"??? by the way allen, viet food is great in the US so i couldn't even imagine how wonderful it is in vietnam and if you think otherwise you're an idiot. well, i can't blame you really, if you think mcdonald's is "good food quality", you obviously have very low standards.

i effin love vietnamese food ... but once in awhile it'd be nice to have a big mac. i've been living here for a few months now, and i gotta tell you i've had better pho in vancouver, and i miss my mc nuggets.
i agree though that you should not come here and just eat junk the food here is amazing, especially more towards the south

Just Returned from Ho Chi Minh, and there are no Mcdonalds there. What I did find are many wonderful restaurants serving healthy foods with great tastes.
Like all foods, somethings you like and others not so good. So try as many things and if you need stability, there is always Pho !

Hm....Mc Donald's did come to vietnam and of course went bankrupt cause of the high price, after a while KFC came...
U guys have no idea of how sick i am of eating out the same vnmese food everytime > < Just imagine u eat the same thing over and over again. And if you're lucky enough to find a good place that serve clean cooked food at the same time tasty in vn then good for u(i'm not so lucky > <). And KFC sucks!!! Dunno how it taste in HCM but in HN it sucks like dirty sucks > < Chicken are too dry and too crispy sth like they cooked it a day ago and just heat it up in the microwave > < Lotteria taste like crap and takes like hours to serve a small hamburger == Aside of all fast food restaurants i've ever taste outside vn, i think McDonald's the best(though unhealthy but tasty). Because of the high price ppl wouldn't visit McD often so the concern for obesity is out!

reply PHO TO THE LE Thanks for your comments everything about Vietnam sounds awesome. Just a quick thought though if it's so awesome WHY THE FUCK do you live in Canada. Here's the deal, shut up about food in the west and we will look the other way on your complete disregard when it comes to personel and especially public hygene. Don't start the argument on east versus west . It's obvious . You'll lose please don't even start.

You'll find all the usual western franchises (pizza hut, domino's pizza, carl's jr, burger king, kfc, and etc) in Vietnam EXCEPT for Mc Donald's and that is because of a disagreement with the VN government on where to source their beef. VN government wants Mc Donald's to use local beef whereas MCD insist on importing their beef...

Vietnamese food can be very fresh and healthy if know where to go. Just the people or some particular restuarants that are not doing healthy cooking. Best of luck to all those tourists.
