Book Description

Nov. 1 2005 Fodor's See It
Fodor’s see it Vietnam is perfect for travelers who want to understand Vietnamese history and culture before they arrive, and experience the country like a native while they’re there.

Overflowing with brilliant color photography, this is the ONLY illustrated guide that provides the practical information that you need while traveling–complete restaurant and hotel reviews with exact prices for lodging and dining (not ranges), plus time-saving tips and how to avoid crowds, exact admission prices to key sights, great photo stops, and special notes on “kid-friendly” attractions throughout.

Hotels
Our detailed reviews represent the best accommodations in Vietnam, in all price ranges. From five-star luxury hotels to family hotels and homestays with local people, we’ll tell you what to expect in terms of price and quality through extensive coverage of hotels and their surrounding neighborhoods, exact prices of double-occupancy rooms (including breakfast), plus pictures of hotel facilities and guestrooms.

Restaurants
If you want to experience the best that Vietnam has to offer, pay particular attention to our outstanding restaurant coverage that will help you choose from the thousands of local eateries that cater to every budget and dining experience. From affordable, food stands to places where you can splurge –like Au Manois de Kahi in Ho Chi Minh City–you’ll find it in see it Vietnam. Each review covers house signature dishes, ambiance, ACTUAL prices for a two-course lunch and a three-course dinner (for two people), hours of operation, and what transportation will get you there.

The Sights
Whether you eat pho bo in Hanoi, swim at China Beach, take a boat on the Perfume River, or drive a motorcycle around Saigon, see it Vietnam will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way. Sights are also rated for their “value”, “walkability”, “historic and cultural interest”, plus we suggest fantastic “photo stops” and entertaining and age-appropriate “kid-friendly” attractions throughout the book.

What to Do?
Our shopping walks will lead you to cutting-edge fashions to fit all budgets, from hip streetwear to expensive fashions for your feet. But, Vietnam has much more to offer than just sight-seeing and shopping. Fodor’s see it Vietnam provides insider information on classical, theatrical, and cinematic performances, Vietnam’s music scene (live jazz to underground youth centres), nightlife, spectator and activity sports, and festivals and events.

Atlas and Maps

Detailed neighborhood maps are incorporated throughout the book to help you navigate on historic walks, shopping tours, or to find a restaurant. Plus, a 16-page atlas details each road and path with highlights of important landmarks, parks, metro stations, and car parking areas.

2.0 out of 5 stars Information at best. Feb. 6 2006
By C. A. Hendrix - Published on Amazon.com
Fodor's See It Vietnam does have a lot of information about the country, it's history and people. Valuable information on how to get there, yet for a book just published it is a little out of date. Lonely Planet's Vietnam has better coverage of places to stay and see. If you are going to Saigon or Hanoi and have a lot of money then this is the guide for you. If you plan to visit other parts of Vietnam and are on a budget, then one of the other guides is your best choice. Buy this one for information and pictures, but get one of the other guides to take with you.
