The Vietnamese also like to smoke Thuoc Lao, a type of strong tobacco. Thuoc Lao is mostly smoked by men and is associated with times of joy, as well as moments of sadness. It is slaked in a pipe made of bamboo and filled with water called a dieu cay. Peasants always carry their dieu cay while ploughing the rice fields.
