my name is Andrea form Italy.
I really love Asian world...i know well Thailand and also Malaysian, but I've never been in Vietnam.
I don't like touristic place (four stars hotels, swimming pool, ecc), but I love real life of real people.
Have you yet any problem with bird desease (sorry for my english...i know it's not very good!)?
If you like to know real life of real people in Vietnam, you should have a young Vietnamese guider. Feel free to contact me if you are interested to come. I live in Ha Noi where you shouldn't miss. There are many lakes here and I'll show you as many as you want! Many foreigners like our food then I guess you'll meet no difficulty.
Travel might "frighten" you because the circulation is busy. By the way it's popular to use a motobike here.
The bird flu (avian influenza) is a problem, but not much in the cities. We are still living normally.
Hope to see you here, and others too! Welcome
