Thailand's Troubles - Vietnam's Gain?

Vietnam's tourism doesn't seem to be affected by the world economic downturn so far, but there's been a big looming question regarding what will happen after the holiday reservations have come and gone. Is the Thailand political situation--much like the terrible Tsunami--set to rescue Vietnam from what might otherwise be a very rough patch in the economy? I also just discovered that Siem Reap Airlines, a national airlines of Cambodia, just suspended all domestic and international flights indefinitely this week, the apparent result of an unrelated dispute with the EU. It might be even better for Vietnam if tourists have difficulty traveling in Cambodia.
