This post was inspired by one of my Facebook friends. Elena is on a round-the-world trip and had been planning to spend time in Vietnam. However, she had heard “horror stories” about the country, so she is thinking of heading elsewhere. Like any normal person in 2012, she put the question to Facebook–should she still go to Vietnam, or should she skip it?
As you’ll see at the end of this post, I have a definite opinion as to whether Vietnam deserves a spot on Elena’s itinerary. Before I get there, though, here is a brief list of places in Vietnam as well as my (obviously biased) opinion as to whether someone should see it and skip it. Read on, and tell me what you think!
