The book was up to date and accurate. Used the places to eat section a lot, and recommended the book to fellow travellers. It advised you about cultural nuances such as tipping and haggling in the markets. The itineraries were great and gave you a realistic idea of what to see in each area.

I bought this book back in September as I was planning a trip to visit northern Vietnam including Hanoi and Halong Bay. I often by DK Eyewitness books as I prefer visual guides, and like others in my collection this one is great.

Before my trip, I only read the introduction which gives and overview of Vietnam, and the chapters about where we planned to go. HOWEVER, when on my trip in January, I read the entire book, or at least tried. I discovered that pages 48 to 72 are missing! The book does not appear to be damaged at all, I think it must be a production error, but as I bought the book way back in September I cannot work out how to contact amazon and complain about being sold a faulty product! I am hoping that if the seller reads this, and it does turn out to be a production error and the books have been recalled, I can hopefully get a replacement, so that if I visit southern Vietnam including Ho Chi Minh City, I don't need to buy another book!

Overall this guide is ok but the Cambodia section had a major omission. There was no mention of The NATIONAL ANGOR WAT Museum in Siem Reap. Fortunately one of our party read about it on the Internet, it is an excellent museum & we would have been extremely disappointed if we had missed it.

I had already bought a guide book which disappointed me so I searched for another one. This book is excellent as not only is it informative the pictures are brilliant. I will always look for DK Eyewitness books in future for other destinations.
The best guide book you could buy.

This book can't make up its mind what it is trying to be. It wants to be both a high gloss coffee table travelogue with full spread panoramic views printed on heavyweight gloss paper but also, by reducing its size, to make it a handy pocket sized guide. The problem is it is neither.
It is far too heavy to lug around, because of the glossy format, in the heat of Vietnam and is annoyingly just too big to fit in a pocket. However the glamorous full spread shots are a waste of time on such a small format and do not provide any further information. So I gave up, left it at home and just took photocopies of the relevant pages to Vietnam with me.
It's a pity as turning it into a lightweight paperback guide would have made it so much more useable.

Typical DK guide, so great layout and photos. Liked it was published not too long ago so should be up to date with opening times etc. Yet to visit Vietnam/Angkor so can't vouch for accuracy. Clearer layout than my Baedekers guide which I bought previously, although that has good and in depth info.

informative book with pictures....possibly not enough down- and- dirty information for me, I'm really a 'rough guide' guy, so I'll stick to that, however I would recommend this book....
