    Used for my 5 day trip to Saigon. The book contains very nice tips regarding the local transportation and excellent food reviews. With 60 local dishes, 120 restaurants - most of them are local - it is an amazing guide for discovering the local dining scene.
  • Amazing travel guide

    I used this book for my trip to Ho Chi Minh City last month. Overall, the best travel guide on Vietnam so far. There are tons of images for illustration. The eating chapter is awesome with lots of local eateries. Recommend this book.
  • I used this guide daily on my trip to Ho Chi Minh City

    I'll keep this short and sweet - this book covers the Ho Chi Minh City in great detail that is more than sufficient for a 4 day trip. The primary locations I visited were District 1 and Cholon. The guidebook was full of incredibly helpful information, especially maps and things to do. This type of information is critical to have in writing before visiting. You can't just whip out your tablet and expect instant results ... you have to plan ahead. But planning ahead is much easier with this consolidated treasure trove of essential travel information.

    I see this travel guide while I am traveling in Ho Chi Minh City. I already have Lonely Planet but it's not really useful and I decide to give this book a try. Yeah, it's a new book so it's up-to-date. The eating chapter is stunning. Very detailed and practical. If you prefer to try local food, this book is your best bet with lots of local eateries. As I am particularly impressed by the Oc (snails) dishes mentioned in this book, I visit the snail eatery they suggest and have to say that those snail dishes are some of the tastiest dishes I have ever tried. The local coffee scene is also well covered with lots of lovely cafes. It also has tons of images for all the places (i.e.attractions, eating, drinking etc) which are great. So it's much easier for me to make decision. The maps are big, detailed, and very easy-to-read. For me, maps of this book are the best of all travel guide I have ever read.
