In every culture, courtesy gets you a long way. There is no faster way to get yourself ignored and ultimately hopelessly lost than not knowing how to approach a native in a polite manner. Fortunately, the phrase "excuse me" (Xin Lổi) cuts across all cultures as a form of politeness and getting attention. Once you learn this in Vietnamese and work towards learning it in the language of the country you wish to visit, you are halfway towards getting all the help you will need.
