If you have a desire to go to Vietnam but can’t afford to do so, here is an alternative to actually taking a trip there (or at least postponing the trip until you have the money for it). Vietnam Virtual Tour not only provides a virtual tour of various sites in Vietnam, but you can take a virtual tour of various food items and objects that southeast Asia has to offer. Maybe it’s not the same thing as, oh you know, being there and actually having the experience, but it’s a start. The website also has a collection of Youtube videos as well as posted travel tips in case you actually make the trek to Vietnam. It’s also a great way to reminisce for those who lived and/or grew up there.
