    Hello, me and a friend are crossing over from Cambodia in a couple days (early June) and am wondering if you have any strong recommendations on where we should go. We are considering Pho Quoc for a couple days then are really open to see the rest of Vietnam over a months time. Look forward to your response, thanks for your energy in advance.
