I was backpacking in Vietnam for five weeks. This was my first trip to Asia, so everything was quite overwhelming and new. There are probably just two possibilities to "do" Vietnam - going from North to South or taking the opposite trip from Ho Chi Mihn City to Hanoi. I started in Hanoi - I wouldn´t next time because Hanoi is sooo much more preferable to Ho Chi Minh City, so I would like to safe the best for the end ;) Anyway, Vietnam is a fascinating country. Some people I met have been back in the meantime and say it´s going to be more and more touristy. Well, as much as I hope for the Vietnamese to make a better living, I would fell sorry if they fell for the same traps like so many other countries who "sold out" to international mass tourism.... Hope to be back one day to get my own impression of the change
