Jeannie and I head to Ho Chih Minh City (Saigon) in a week to visit relatives. Then to Mae Sot, Thailand where I will (sadly) busy myself on my computer while she attends to a Burmese refugee study. But we plan to sightsee a little.
Reader recommendations for food, day trips, or short overnight trips around either spot?
P.S. If you are looking for a last-minute giving destination for 2010, dear friends run a fantastic Burmese refugee project in northern Thailand, reaching people served poorly by the bigger NGOs.
