Tourists come to Vietnam to not only shop and see the cultural sights that vietnam offers but, also to swim in your beaches. on my fifth return to vietnam i found that nothing had been done to clean up the polluted beaches - every tourist loves to swim in the ocean, pools in hotels are not that appealing as I've seen babies in them with their nappies on and hotels don't monitor these things. so Vietnam needs to clean up their beaches extensively, otherwise their tourist numbers will decline, as tourists will go to Thailand, photos are photo shopped, so Vietnam don't lose what is important to your economy and clean up your beaches....its been done in Australia and has improved tourist numbers...please save your country as well as your environment. I would gladly come over and start a clean up campaign. Thank you
