Sacrifice a water puppet show or a trip to the Reunification Palace in Ho Chi Minh City this October for a hearty helping of German music and food. The German Business Association adds legitimacy to this lederhosen-clad party, acting as its official sponsor. Oktoberfest Vietnam, held at the Windsor Plaza Hotel, features German games, nightly raffles, all-you-can-eat food, and -- of course -- beer, that last year attracted more 14,000 guests. A tad smaller than Munich's guest list of 6 million, Saigon's offers a smaller-scale version of a traditional beer garden.
