5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Guide, 1 Jun 2011

This review is from: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos Handbook (Footprint Handbook) (Hardcover)
I found this guidebook an excellent help when travelling in these countries. The guide contains a lot of interesting background information about the sights, temples and cultures of these countries. Two of the main reasons I prefer this Footprint Guide over other guide books are, firstly, the detailed practical information given in the first few chapters about how to fly into and between these countries, visas, budgets etc. Secondly, most other guides cater for backpackers aiming to travel for peanuts. If you would like to read detailed reviews of accommodation and restaurants covering a very wide range of budgets, this book is for you. While naturally there is overlap with other guides, this one will help you avoid the overcrowded 'Lonely Planet' tourist traps. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A five star experience of a read and hopefully a trip, 15 Oct 2012
This review is from: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos Handbook (Footprint Handbook) (Hardcover)
This is an excellent little book that covers an amazing breadth og geography, culture, cuisine, temples and so much more. It is highly readable, and set oiut so that you can pick out just the bits you want, or read it through to decide where you want to organise your trip.
It seems to cover all the main sights with enough background information, and gives a broad selection of accommodation and restaurants for every budget. Transportation is also discussed with the same in mind.
I am using it to plan a trip and have found it to be invaluable.
I bought a second hand book but this is as good as new
Highly recommended
