Well done Rough Guides.
Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allows. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.
The Contents are
P004: Introduction (when and where to go, “27 things not to miss”, suggested itineraries)
P024: Basics (travel, accommodation, health, crime & safety, and all the “essential” information for visitors)
P062: Ho Chi Minh City and around
P110: The Mekong Delta
P166: The central highlands
P198: The southern coast
P240: Central Viet-Nam
P302: The northern coast
P340: Hanoi and around
P390: The far north
P428: Contexts (articles on local culture - history, arts, people, etc.)
