A Vietnamese tour guide and her husband visit Vietnam’s capital, Ho Chi Minh City, on their honeymoon.
The couple is staying in the Ho Chi Mien city, which has been designated a tourist attraction.
The guide, a retired Air Force officer, said she was a Vietnam veteran, and had been planning to visit Vietnam since she left the military.
She told the Associated Press the government has not responded to her request for information.
“There are no restrictions on what you can do,” said the guide, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media.
“The government has always been welcoming to foreigners, even though it is not a very welcoming country.
We have been here for 30 years.”
A number of Vietnamese cities have been designated tourist attractions in recent years, including Hanoi and Ho Chi Nhan.
Tourism is expected to grow more than 4% this year, as tourism investment expands in Vietnam and a growing middle class in the country continues to support growth.
The number of foreign tourists in Vietnam rose more than 20% in 2017 to 5.3 million, according to the Tourism Ministry.
