Now I have a picture about my trip to the country. I will only have a week, think will definitely have a problem whole closing which destination should I choose.

Excellent photographs - Vietnam is a photographers dream. We did the Silverseas Bangkok - Vietnam - Singapore trip a few years back. Vietnam appears to be completely unchanged judging by your pictures, which is nice to see. I hope you experienced smoother seas than we did!
