Three local residents start to learn Falun Gong exercises after looking through our pamphlets Taking a picture with local residents. One of them is holding a Falun Gong bookmark

( At the beginning of February 2004, we visited Vietnam for three days with a tourist group. The tour conductor said that he'd never heard anyone talking about Falun Gong in Vietnam. Because the tour conductor often leads Mainland tourist groups and he had been to Hong Kong, he saw Hong Kong Falun Gong practitioners distributing Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials at tourist sites. I explained to him the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution, and asked him to tell Chinese tourists what he had seen and heard in the free world, and that the slanderous propaganda in China is not true.

In Ho Chi Minh Museum Square, I met a Chinese tourist group of about 20 people. Because I had clarified truth to Chinese tourists in Aili Mountain before, I knew how to talk to Chinese tourists. They thought I was from Hong Kong, and I told them that I came from Taiwan. They said they never heard that Taiwanese practice Falun Gong. I gave them Falun Gong pamphlets and every one of them took one. With their eyes wide open, they quietly listened to me. It seemed they were unprepared to get Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials in Northern Vietnam. A young fellow whispered: We all know! He nodded his head and left.

Another attraction is Xialong Bay, which is known for its "Sea Guilin [a famous Chinese attraction]." As it is only about 120 km away from Chinese border and one can go through customs with a pass, it used to have tens of thousand Chinese tourists everyday before the Chinese New year. However, due to the bird flu, now Chinese tourists are scarce. Hoping people with predestined relationship will have a chance to obtain the truth of the Fa, we left some Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials in the hotel where we stayed.

On the last day of our Vietnam tour, we distributed fliers in downtown Hanoi for about one hour. The tricycle driver who had learned the truth of Falun Gong cooperated with us very well. When seeing young guys, he not only slowed down and pulled over so that we could give them Falun Gong materials, he also took the initiative to explain to them in Vietnamese if they hesitated to accept our fliers.

About 70 to 80 percent of our tourist group were schoolteachers. They were very curious seeing practitioners distributing Falun Gong materials everywhere we went. We then shared with them how we had benefited from Falun Gong and our wish to share this wonderful practice with everyone in Vietnam. A lady in our tourist group said that she practiced Falun Gong for a little while before, but she quit because her husband laughed at her whenever she practiced. I encouraged her to resume the practice. I said that we are so lucky to have the freedom to practice in Taiwan and we should cherish this opportunity. On the last day of our Vietnam tour, her husband came to ask us what Falun Gong is and why Jiang and his followers are persecuting Falun Gong. We answered all his questions. He told us that his right shoulder hurt so much that he couldn't raise up his hand and had to take medicine everyday. He said he would try Falun Gong after he returned to Taiwan.
