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 down the pace with a trip to national parks or the remote highlands.

The introduction will help you choose where to go and what to see, inspired by dozens of stunning photos. The Things Not To Miss section runs through all the must-sees, while the Itineraries guide you around the country's highlights. Navigation through the book and on the ground is aided by clear color maps with every chapter. Each map is keyed with all the accommodation, eating and drinking options, nightlife venues and shops that are reviewed in detail in the Listings chapters.

From the rugged mountains of Ha Giang in the north to the pancake-flat Mekong Delta in the south, the honest and up-to-date appraisals in The Rough Guide to Vietnam 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.

This fully revised edition is full-color throughout, helping the country's tremendous food, impressive colonial architecture, and colorful customs leap from the page. Detailed color maps offer clear guidance. Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Vietnam.
