The Rough Guide to Vietnam is the essential guide to one of Southeast Asia's most enticing destinations. Roam the markets, temples and shops of thousand-year-old Hanoi, and then slow the pace down with a trip to national parks or the remote highlands.
From the rugged mountains of Ha Giang in the north to the pancake-flat Mekong Delta in the south, the Rough Guide's honest and up-to-date appraisals will steer you to the best places to stay, eat and party across every price range. Reviews take in hill-tribe homestays, quirky hostels, boutique hotels, sophisticated restaurants and delicious street food, while informed and accessible writing covers everything from Buddhism to battlefields.
The fully revised Rough Guide to Vietnam is full-colour throughout, helping the country's tremendous food, impressive colonial architecture and colourful ethnic minorities leap from the page, and detailed maps offer clear guidance.
