Cam Nam Island is known for its many Arica palm trees. On this tree the 'beetlenut' grows. Elderly Vietnamese women are often seen chewing on this nut to get red and black teeth, which is seen as a sign of beauty. It is a custom for grooms to give this nut to their future mother-in-law on their wedding day. We will provide this and more authentic social and cultural insight into the Vietnamese local way of life.
