Abstract

Under the impacts of globalization and the development of science and technology, nowadays, there is an increase in the types of recreation and entertainment in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) to meet the growing demand of people with different characteristics in age, gender, income, etc. This paper examines current trends in the entertainment of urban families in HCMC from the anthropological perspective. Participatory observation and in-depth interviews were employed, focusing on families in resettlement apartments to elaborate on the following research questions: How does globalization affect the entertaining habits of the urban families in HCMC? And how do the current trends of entertainment affect the relationships among family members? Within the extent of the study, we were performing the study in terms of the family at apartments for resettled residents in HCMC. We expect that the results of the study play an essential part in elucidating the roles of entertainment in family cohesion as well as forming positive lifestyles of urban residents.
