Question

I need to know the following locations in & around HCMC for a specially requested custom tour project. All locations MUST be exact...

...(regardless of what they look like now): a) The corner where Thich Quang Duc's self-immolation took place; b) The catholic church in Cho Lon where Ngo Dinh Diem & his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu were captured after the 1963 coup; c) The location where the policeman Loan shot the captured guerrilla in 1968; d) The current street location of the former Australian Army Headquarters; e) Location of the old Reuters office before '75; f) Location of the "Badcoe" club in Vung Tau; and g) Current highway number & location of Nick Ut's famous photo of Pham Thi Kim Phuc (8 June 1972). The locations must be 100% authentic. Any help to re-locate the places for some of the most iconic images of the latter half of the last century will be most welcome. Shane//
