As a friend so aptly put it in one of her Facebook entries, Vietnam is indeed a land of hope,
history and healing. Despite the war that plagued it for many, many years, the country recovered
and blossomed into one of the most beautiful, and tourist-friendly destinations in Asia.
Yes, it is a third-world country - but it is one that has so much to offer.
