Have you tried Vietnamese coffee? The Vietnamese like their coffee super-strong with sweetened condensed milk, which is not quite how most Starbucks drinks are prepared. However, Starbucks have opened a flagship store in Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City. It remains to be seen how well the store will do, although many people will probably visit for novelty value.

 

The fact you can get other drinks in Starbucks such as mocha, green tea Frappuccino and shakes will also increase its appeal, and of course wherever there are American tourists there is usually a Starbucks to be found somewhere. I discovered recently there are only a couple of Starbucks in the Netherlands, one of which is in Schiphol airport. The Dutch drink their coffee super-strong so perhaps Starbucks just would not succeed there? Let's see what happens in Vietnam.
