Are most Vietnamese natives considered "conservative"?

I know in the US and other western worlds, that title has been muddied but I always viewed as a simple concept of putting independence, responsibility, traditions, and family first. Maybe that is not the right way of looking at it but that is how I view it. I am wondering it Vietnamese natives are this way? What do you think?

I would say yes, absolutely. They are very much in favor of preserving their traditions and heritage. I have met people that immigrated from Vietnam and they are some of the most conservative people I know.

With how they keep changing words and making words bad, I can't really keep up! I think your definition of conservative lines up with many Vietnamese people though.

I think it depends on the age and region. Hanoi is more traditional than in Saigon. Some groups of Vietnamese are less traditional/conservative. But overall, the young Vietnamese generation always try to listen to their parents but then they also want to live their own life too and not be too traditional. It could be because of TikTok and social media. There are some who rebel and follow their own ways (getting tattoos, dating early, having sex before marriage, no college, etc.) It's becoming normal.

I think it is a mix. I would say conservative liberal. They are not progressive though. That is where a lot of modern issues with race and culture are coming from.

I would say most over the age of 50 for sure but younger ones are more liberal for sure. I can see it in their culture with the music alone. I think they respect their tradition though which is a good thing.

Absolutely; There are, with reason, very proud of their culture and keep it ferociously. Of course, there is some "americanization" in clothes and food - disgusting McDo and KFC are mushrooming - especially among the Young, but, basically, tradition is the rule, and it is very good because, when you lose your culture, you lose your identity.
