Sounds like you want compensation for not seeing some sites in Vietnam. Were you on a package tour from a tour company that included the flights or a package tour from the airline? If it was a package tour, then you have grounds to ask for refunds for the missed activities. If you were doing your own thing, then they owe you nothing, as every airline's ...

As a complement to the other answers, I can offer my personal experience that I made it in and out of the country (and the conference) without any trouble, using a visa-on-arrival letter. Of course, this is not authoritative information, just anecdotal.
