This new edition of our Vietnam guide has been comprehensively overhauled and expanded to 400 pages, with hundreds of superb color photographs to bring the destination to life. There are three new photo essays on wildlife, street food and Cham art, a new feature on the legacy of the Vietnam War and expanded sections on geography, cuisine and the people of Vietnam. The history section has been extended, and there are 50% more restaurant recommendations for Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Festival coverage has also been expanded by 50%.

The first part of the book details Vietnam's long history and fascinating culture. The Places section contains descriptive region-by-region accounts, complemented by attractive, detailed maps linked to the key sights by numbered dots. At the back of the book, the Travel Tips section provides all the practical information you'll need to plan a memorable trip, as well as selective listings giving our writer's pick of the best places to stay and eat.
