This is an outstanding guidebook! So much better written than most, and very well researched. I really appreciated the history section, as well as short boxes about interesting aspects of Vietnamese culture. I look forward to reading James Sullivan's book, Over the Moat, about his courtship with his Vietnamese wife. How often do you look for a book written by a guidebook author? I've never done that before!

although I am not actually a fan of anything from this part of the world, this book almost made me want to hop on a plane and go see what all the ruckus is about. Gorgeous pictures help the reader to visualize what some of the attractions look like.

Surprisingly, this was my favorite of all the Vietnam guidebooks I checked out! Not as in-depth as some of the other publications, but beautiful photos, great overview, good cultural background, practical advice.

Slim volume. Great photos. Numerous destination ideas. But, short on practicalities.
