Discover Vietnam

Lie back on your very own junk and enjoy the languid beauty of Halong Bay's limestone outcrops.
Get lost in Hanoi's Old Quarter; sup on streetside phoand toast your fellow diners with a bia hoi.
Squeeze into the Cu Chi Tunnels and marvel at the engineering ingenuity that kept the VC hidden from enemy fire.
Join the locals in an afternoon pick-me-up of snake's heart and a cup of serpent blood.

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
