At the heart of this full-colour and visually inspiring guide is a wealth of well-researched information and over 150 detailed recommendations, written by experts. From the magnificent monuments and palaces, to the unspoilt natural environment, you will find all the sights and top attractions explored in an easy-to-read A-Z format. Superb 3D laminated illustrations display the key sights in perspective and include a Vietnamese Pagoda and the tunnels of Cu Chi, brought to life at the turn of a page. Clear and concise background texts explore Vietnam's fascinating history, tracing key events such as the great dynasties, Vietnam War, unity and the Socialist period.

Throughout the guide you will also find the answers to Vietnam's more intriguing cultural questions such as 'What made the Bach Dang River so famous?' and 'Who lived under 50 different names?'. A comprehensive 'Practicalities' chapter covers all the essential travel advice you need, including accommodation, transport, food and drink, shopping, language and more, not to mention useful insider tips for travellers with disabilities and those travelling with children. It reveals where and when you can catch festivals, holidays and other cultural events throughout the year and also highlights where the loveliest beaches can be found.

The guide is accompanied by a large, fully indexed, pull-out map, along with 41 detailed maps and plans within the text that clearly pin-point the best places to stay and top venues to eat and drink en route.
