Hubby and I and some friends will be heading to Bangkok in a month or so. We've arranged a package tour in Cambodia to see Angkor Wat, and in Vietnam to Saigon (HCMC) and Hue City--any advice? We have been to Asia before.

Hi Colleen!  All I know is that a friend went to Cambodia a couple of years ago and said it was the most beautiful place she had been for a long time.

Happy travels, Colleen! When I travel outside of the country, I register w the State Dept, which u can do online. It facilitates things if u find urself in need. It also gives the US gov't an emergency contact. Hopefully, u wont need it.
