Vancouver, BC Canada
- Disturbing, interesting history. Vibrant, occasionally (esp rush hour HCMC/Saigon) challenging urban pulse (whoa scooters! on sidewalks! i.e., everywhere! in droves). Noticeable cultural shift from north to south (direction of our tour). English language wanting (more so in the north), especially with growing tourism and resulting employment opportunities.
Itinerary was very good. Enjoyed Huế's Citadel/Imperial City (could well have done without noisy, boring boat excursion on Perfume River). Unfortunately, no way around lengthy bus rides to/from Highlands. Loved Hoi An, Mekong, and HCMC/Saigon.
