Central Vietnam, 2010
According to Vietnam News, Central Vietnam, specifically the area around Hue, is going to get about a million buckaroos to boost tourism for 2012. The goal apparently is to boost the amount of tourism by about 7 to 8 million visitors.
Tourism is a big economic booster in SE Asia. The only hope is that you get the "good" tourists versus some of the "bad" tourists. On my way back from Hanoi, I noticed some very seedy "farangs" with really disheveled looks. Some actually sort of smelled a little too. Hue is a beautiful city. There are also a lot of really nice spots there.
