Good Travel Info. Jan 9, 2007
Good basic, mainstream travel info. Lots of great pictures - which I find preferable to travel guides with no pictures. I like to see the places I'm reading about.

I just unwrapped my Insight Giuide Vietnam from this site. It has some of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen. The travel text is simply icing on the cake. Anyone involved in a trip to Vietnam will want this book on their shelf. This book will excite your imagination, and guarantee that you will have beautiful memories of your trip even if you lose your camera.
Although it includes most of the information I found in Fodor's, it wasn't as detailed. It's as if the writer assumes the reader knows his way around Hanoi or other larger cities. Top sights to visit are blurred together. Maps were difficult to read.

While the Insight Guides do not provide the best info as far as hotels and restaurants, they give excellent background info and tourist info. A great resource.
