So there's two things I dislike about Vietnam:

1 (in my control): I can't communicate with locals as English comprehension is generally weak and, unlike Thailand or Laos, I can't small talk in the local language to connect with people.

2 (not in my control): The prevalence of smoking is straight-up not cool. Having lived in countries where smoking in buildings is unacceptable or illegal (US, UK, Thailand), my throat and eyes are dying here.
