Vietnam is the new Thailand
I am back in Beijing after a lovely, lovely week in Vietnam. I cannot recommend this country highly enough. It has all of the joys of Southeast Asia - great food, nice people, high quality handicrafts - with a laid back French colonial flair.
I am still recovering from my 4 a.m. Air China flight back from Ho Chi Minh (with a beyond crappy hour layover in Nanning), so I'll save details of the trip for later this week, including a review of our spa villas in Dalat and more pictures.
