Format: Paperback
The Treasures And Pleasures Of Vietnam And Cambodia: Best Of The Best In Travel And Shopping is an amazing, "user friendly" touring, travel, and shopping guide. Individual chapters focus upon the marvels of Vietnamese and Cambodian cities, as well as adventure-of-a-lifetime guidelines for smart traveling and shopping. Filled with sensible advice, maps, addresses, tips, great places to go and an easy index, The Treasures and Pleasures of Vietnam and Cambodia covers everything short of being a primer in the native language. Highly recommended for anyone planning a trip to these exotic and beautiful lands, The Treasures And Pleasures Of Vietnam And Cambodia is a "must" for getting the most out of a business or vacation trip to these exotic lands.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I popped over to Vietnam back in 2005 and lugged this book along with me, along with a couple of other guides. I actually had thought that this one would be worthless and weak, but it turned out to be by far the best resource of all. It's packed with information on places to go and things to do, and has scads of detail about addresses, hours of operation, admission fees, names of owners and operators, transportation options, recommended restaurants and dishes, what to concentrate upon at various museums and tourist sites, hotel rates, and so on.

I visited Hanoi, Hue, Danang, Hoi An, and Saigon, and found that this guide was valuable at every stop. It was of particular use in Hanoi, where I spent the most money on art, since it has very comprehensive entries on practically every gallery in town, what the price ranges and levels of quality are, what kinds of art are to be found there, et cetera. The authors also have suggestions on how and when to bargain and what shipping methods to use.

If you have the slightest intention of buying more than two items on a trip to Vietnam, or you want to ditch your tour group and go rogue, this book is highly recommended.
