Go to Sihanoukville, the vietnamese coast tends to be very murky.

I did mine in the Gili Islands in Indonesia, just east of Bali and loved it. Great easy island, awesome people and fantastic fish.

Go to Semporna (Borneo, Malaysia) and dive by the Sipadan Island! Best diving so far in SE Asia!

My partner did his padi in Sihanoukville and even though it was a little choppy and murky at times he loved it. You seem to have more of a personal experience as it not quite as touristy as Thailand. You dont mention if you already have your PADI if not do it here then cheap dives elsewhere in asia.

Nha Trang was okey, quite easy to get there from Saigon.

Sihanoukville for sure. Visibility a lot better. Also less touristy and nicer then Vietnam
