Arabs don't eat pork either. so have to supply HALAL food.. ooooooh. Difficult.!!" onecutedog "Better yet, just build a big mosque in Ha Long Bay. They will come in flock." durtisolte "Many tourists from the Middle East want to visit Vietnam, and most of them are from Saudi Arabia.

Reality is that Vietnamese tourism has to live from Vietnamese tourists for a long time to come! The war in Europe, inflation will bite in everybody's purse! China, nobody knows and Russia becomes a mess. On top of that the not so friendly visa requirements and you get the perfect storm. hansvanhanoi The keyword is diversification - as an old proverb tells: Do not put all eggs in one basket.

Hardly makes you feel safe knowing a lot of people mistake the brake for the accelerator!!!" Jeremycanuto "The Vietnamese use both feet for braking and accelerating.

In addition, they would fail the driving test in a western country but everyone passes it in Vietnam."
