Hanoi or HCMC

I have the chance to spend 3 days in Vietnam as a stopover (2 nights) and i can choose between Hanoi or HCMC. Given the fact that i have never visited Vietnam before, what would be your choice, in order to have a more authentic idea about the country (although i know the time is very lmited)

I agree with the choice of Hanoi. You can see a fair amount of the city with three days. Try to take in a water puppet show if you can!

So far it's unanimous - and I'll add my vote for Hanoi.
