Generally pretty good. No major oversights or errors and it got us through Vietnam fairly hassle-free.

Not a very useful guide. I found the city maps to be particularly confusing. More emphasis on higher end travel than expected. Not sure how they chose which guesthouses, restaurants, tour providers, etc to include and which to omit, but in my experience they missed the mark several times. In this case, I would definitely recommend the Lonely Planet instead.

I knew from languagge lesson that there are six vocal altitudes for the vietnamese language, how high a word is spoken does implicate its meaning and also usually male and female have soprano and bass vocals, the meaning is.... imitation

Excatly I did not have the travel guide but the dictionary, not even a grammar at hand
I think Ive gone off Rough Guide travelling books. Presented information in a boring way and seem to have virtually no photos in thé book.

Recommends it for: English speakers in Vietnam
While the blurb on the back says that "it just like having a local friend," it is not. But fits in your pocket and can really help you just by pointing at phrases. The phonetics are a bit troublesome too but is recommended.
