The Trail of Tours — 5 Comments

  1. Hey Jim,
    If you get a chance, visit Vung Tau. It was the in-country R&R center during the war. I was there in 1969 and it was a beautiful seaside city.

    • Hi Bill, I’m hoping we can get there for at least a day, but time is running out. Have you been back to Vietnam since the war? I’d be interested to hear your perspective.

  2. I see that vietnam has changed and not for the better since i was there in 2002….. try and look beyond the throngs of tourist…..i think vietnam is still there someplace!!!!

    • Yes, it has. Many times on this trip I’ve wished we had come when you first told us about it. Not that Vietnam isn’t worth visiting now, but it sure feels like we’re late to the party.

  3. Hey Jim,
    I traveled to other locations in Asia in 1999 and 2000 and although I heard Vietnam was beautiful, especially the North, I could not bring myself to go because of my experiences during the war.
    Hi to Faye.
    Best, Bill
