I've just come back from a holiday in Vietnam. We spent 3 days in Saigon and 3 days in Vung Tau as it was the closest beach to Saigon. The beach itself was no where as nice as the Gold Coast but the culture and people were great. The hotel staff were very helpful and made me feel like nothing was too difficult. The rooms were squeaky clean and the free breakfast was delicious. We took a rear room however still had a great view of the ocean.
