    Description: Marco Polo Vietnam: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips Most travellers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their holiday destination - that's what Marco Polo Guides are all about. This new series will appeal to all types of travellers, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past! Marco Polo's unique insider tips are peppered throughout the guide - offering a real insight into the destination. Experience all the attractions of Vietnam with this up-to date and authoritative guide, complete with Best Of recommendations. You'll find excellent hotels, restaurants and beaches, plus information on the latest trends, festivals and events, sports and activities and travelling with children; there are also tips for shopping and getting by on a low budget. Further sections include: Travel Tips, Food & Drink, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Vietnamese phrasebook and index. Vietnam has arrived in the 21st century. Moss and patina might cover the ancient sites but the streets of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are a bustle with all the trappings of modernity, and visitors cannot quite believe their eyes. With MARCO POLO Vietnam you'll experience a country caught between the past and a new dawn, beyond all the cliches of the Vietnam War, opium pipes and snake wine. The practical, pocket-sized guide leads you to National Parks rich in wildlife, and to natural wonders that will leave you awestruck, whether at Halong Bay in the north or in the flooded world of the Mekong Delta. In between there are 3,200km (2,000 miles) of coast with islands, beaches and hidden hideaways to explore. The Highlights point out places that you shouldn't miss on your trip to Vietnam. The Best Of pages focus on some unique things about the country, recommend places to go for free, and have tips for things to do if it rains and where you can relax and unwind. The Insider Tips reveal for example how you can support a children's aid project by staying at a Baguette & Chocolat guesthouse, or where you can ride an elephant through the jungle; while panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. The Excursions & Tours chapter leads you into the Mekong Delta, to Halong Bay and through nature reserves and national parks. The choice for actively-inclined travellers is growing in Vietnam. But don't expect perfection some sports, tours or soft adventures are relatively new, like caving for example. The Sports & Activities chapter contains the most important information and contact details. Finally the Dos & Don'ts list a few things you should watch out for in Vietnam. MARCO POLO Vietnam provides comprehensive coverage of all parts of the country. To help you find your way around there is a detailed Road Atlas, a useful map of Ho Chi Minh City in the cover and a separate pull-out map.
