great travel guide,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Vietnam (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
first time ive brought a lonely planet book. i brought this as i want the most of my holiday to vietnam. I was recommended to get this from a friend who has done extensive travelling all over the world. what a great book. it has examples of places to go for different time scales which is good if your more organised than me, What i liked was that each area has places to see with prices for entry and a few lines of what to expect to see once youre there. Then places to stay and eat and nightlife. Each section gives you prices, whats the best thing to eat and really good maps in each section of cities and towns. Also which is really refreshing is that it gives you tips on the bad side of a place. recommending where to avoid or what to look out for. Common sense tells you that every place in the worl has good and bad but being made aware of what to look out for makes your holiday more enjoyable.
over all i really do recommend this book for anyone travelling to vietnam. easy to carry around so you dont have to try and remember where you want to go.
