Vietnam and Cambodia in 1993
In 1993 I visited the southern part of Vietnam and some of Cambodia. My trip took me to Saigon (Sai Gon, Ho Chi Minh City), the tunnels from the war in Cu Chi, and south from there: Can Tho, Soc Trang, Vung Tau, including a wonderful boat trip on the river Mekong. Food at the seaside was amazing. After that I have not been there. Everywhere, Saigon then and Ho Chi Minh City now must be very different places. At that time it was a little adventure to go there without an organized tour.
Then in Cambodia the capital Phnom Penh and Siem Reap with Angkor. There were very few tourists in Angkor at that time, most foreigners we saw were from the United Nations peacekeeping troops. Have you been there recently? I guess you had a very different impression. However, Angkor is simply sensationell.
