C.L. Hoang (clhoang) | 4 comments Greetings, and Happy New Year! I hope you had a Wonderful Holiday Season.

I'm happy to share with you my newly published book titled "Rain Falling on Tamarind Trees: A Travelogue of Vietnam." It retraces my 2016 visit to Vietnam, my first time back since I'd left there as a teenager in the 1970's.

During the first couple of weeks following its Nov 18, 2017 release, the book was declared Amazon's #1 New Release in Vietnam Travel Guides. It also hit #1 on (France) among Books in English and Foreign Languages on Southeast Asia History.

For more information about the travelogue and to read an excerpt, please check out my website at:

I wish you a Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous 2018!
