Abstract:

Vietnamese officials were frequently dispatched to Southeast Asian countries for military and trading purposes during the 19th century. Their writings and observations during these journeys have left behind records in the form of travelogues, poems, and notes about local communities. Although few in number and nothing comparable to similar materials in Chinese or English, they nevertheless constitute an important source of documentary evidence to allow these communities to understand themselves through the eyes of the outsiders.
