This is quite a useful book about Vietnam however, when travelling to this country the guide seems a little bit not updated as they publish the guide 6 months ahead.
Review: Lonely Planet Vietnam (Lonely Planet Country Guide)User Review - Ulrike - Goodreads
All in all a good guide, unfortunately it's not up-to-date anymore, and a lot of restaurants and hotels didn't exist anymore or had changed completley. Also you cannot rely on the information given in terms of transportation, which we had to learn the hard way. Read full review
