I've been walking around all day and I came to the conclusion that I stink.

In a good way.

It's so amazingly hot here.

So amazingly humid.

It's not as nice as Thailand, but it's interesting and there are new things to experience.

As soon as I got here I could feel that the people are not as friendly. The locals and the tourists.

It's more hectic, more rushed, more high strung, less hippie, less mellow, less open and welcoming to tourists.

Thailand has done a really good job being accessible to tourists, and you can do SOOOO many things there for pretty cheap prices. Vietnam on the other hand, you have to spend a bit more money to actually get better trips and experiences. If you pay for your basic $10 day trip, you get 5 or 6 hours on a bus, lead around to buy local souvenirs, and mediocre food.

So, when it comes to tours and such, you really do get what you pay for here in Vietman.

Thailand, you can pay very little and have amazing experiences. I can't wait to go to Thailand.

Much more people will go back to visit Thailand than people who will go back and visit Vietnam.

I'm looking forward to getting out of the big city and go to a smaller city on the beach. It's pretty difficult to leave the tourist trail here, mainly because outside of the big tourists spots, people don't speak English and you'll have a very difficult time finding out how to get around, where to stay, and where to eat.
