Welcome Auvoantic :)
Would you recommend people living in non-buddhist countries that they visit Vietnam to help better understand Buddhist traditions?

Theravada exists in South VN from monks going to Thailand and Shrilanka. Most of VN is Mahayana from under the influence of China.

It is a good source of info as to Theravada temples.
Have a question. If a monk in Theravada tradition from another country wants to stay in a temple for a year or two in Vietnam,
Which one would u recommend?

Need ur feedback most.

TQ. Sudanto.

I spoke to a Vietnamese friend who was very discouraging. He said that staying long term is very tricky. The temple hosting your stay must obtain permission from the government which will ask a lot of questions regarding your intentions. Then there are limits to what one can do. Giving talks, almsround may be prohibited.
