Reliable, readable Rough Guides (Conde Nast Traveller)

Synopsis

"The Rough Guide to Vietnam" is ideal for people who want to travel independently and discover more about this incredibly diverse country. It includes lively reviews of the best places to eat, from street kitchens to the upmarket restaurants of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, and practical advice on activities, from home-stays in ethnic minority villages to boat trips around Ha Long Bay and visits to its national parks. There are extensive, user-friendly descriptions of Vietnam's many sights, including Hue's Imperial city, temples and pagodas and Vietnam's impressive colonial architecture, as well as its deserted beaches and the waterways of the Mekong Delta. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good travel companion 3. Januar 2014
Von Hiker
Format:Kindle Edition
Traveling through Vietnam I have come to love this guidebook: its descriptions were always spot-on and in most instances I had the same impressions/experiences which this guide conveyed (sometimes I was reading up in it after having seen something, so doesn't mean that I was pre-influenced by it). Contrary to the German guidebooks it does not concentrate so much and numbers and figures but more on soft facts, and I like this. This does not mean that you would not be fed with more than plenty of "real" information, e.g. I liked the summary of Ho-Chi-Minh's life on one page.
I cannot say very much on the accomodation and restaurant recommendations as we had arranged for accomodation before and ate where we felt like it. But in the few instances where this co-incided with the book's listings, it gave impressions I'd tend to concur with.
The maps can be improved, the numbering of the restaurants was confusing and did not seem to follow a pattern (one of the reasons why we did not take up many of these recommendations), while sights could have been included more prominently.
Unlike other guidebooks, this does not include Ankor Wat in Cambodia (which is frequently combined with a trip to Vietnam).
I briefly compared with the Lonely Planet and liked this one much better as LP seems to focus fully on practical matters like accomodation/restaurants, which these days is covered well by the use of internet anyway, while it was poor on any other information - while exactly this other information, apart from accomodation, is what I use a guidebook for these days.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A well-researched, reliable and valuable guide 29. März 2008
Von fdoamerica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was in Vietnam (Jan/Feb 2008) and I took with me Lonely Planet and Rough Guide, and the better of the two guides is, by a thin margin, Lonely Planet.

However, there is much to commend Rough Guide Vietnam. It is worth buying just for the section that covers the history, religion (13 pages) and the overall culture of Vietnam. Excellent.

This guide is well laid out; breaking Vietnam into eight sections. Each section has a page that points out the places not to be missed. Each of these sections opens with a very good history and explanation of the area. Rough Guide has an excellent selection of restaurant and eateries (better than Lonely Planet's) with enticing write-ups that tell you what to try, "Goi bo, a salad of banana flower, star fruit and pineapple" or "try stir-fried beef with lemongrass for starters, followed by fried scallops and then che baba - grandma's sweet coconut soup." This guide has a better selection of the discos and clubs than Lonely Planet and it has eight (8) pages of recommended books to consider - Super.

HOWEVER, Rough Guides hardly has any maps, and those that they have are not as good or easy to use as Lonely Planet. It has a cumbersome "price code" system for accommodations, i.e. 1= under to $10, 2= $10-15, 3= $15-30, etc., thus, you have to memorize what the numbers represent or flip back and forth to the legend. Whereby, Lonely Planet shows you the cost in dollars. What an idea! Duh. Only a few accommodations (very few) have webpages. In today's world accommodations webpages are a must. All savvy travelers today want to "see" what a hotel or hostel looks like. R.G. does not breakdown restaurants by cost (Expensive, Moderate, etc.) nor does it give you any prices ranges ($10-15 etc.). Not Good.

In short, the better of the two guides is Lonely Planet, especially if you are going to explore Vietnam and want to get away from the "tourist areas". However, if you are staying in HCMC, Hanoi or other major cities and want the best clubs and restaurants with good eatery descriptions then this is your guide. Strongly Recommended. 4 Stars.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Covers the entire country in great depth, but has a few irksome qualities 3. Juli 2007
Von Christopher Culver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I visited Vietnam in the summer of 2007, touring mainly the north of the country, and used THE ROUGH GUIDE TO VIETNAM, fifth edition. I was immediately impressed by the depth by which the Rough Guide writers covered the country. It's a big book, meaning it weighs down a bag significantly, but no matter where you want to go in Vietnam, it's here.

I cannot comment on the accommodation listings, as I travel by means of Internet hospitality associations and prefer to avoid hotels or hostels. I gave much study to the restaurants listings while on my way to Vietnam, but ultimately didn't use them. The authors give plenty of street kitchens, but travelers shouldn't have difficulty finding such fare, as it's available everywhere you look. Still, the authors do deserve kudos for including a colour section on the concept of street food, encouraging travelers to put aside their fears and partake of this very delicious Vietnamese tradition. The walking tours are easy to follow, and the maps are the clearest you'll find, as one can expect from a Rough Guide publication.

Downsides? Well, I was disappointed by two facets of this Rough Guide. The first is that recent history is completely biased towards the Communist forces fighting for independence, with no understanding of the French and American sides. Other guidebook describe in detail the horrors that ensued in the South after the North claimed victory, and the poverty that created the plight of the boat people, but I felt this guide skirts the issues. The other disappointment was that the guide shows travelers towards the fragile lands of Vietnamese minority people. When minority peoples move their markets to another village to avoid tourists, it seems insensitive for the book to send even more in. Whatever happened to the philosophy that these independent guidebooks had in days of yore, that some places shouldn't be included in the book to challenge travelers and preserve secluded spots?

As I write this, the Lonely Planet guide is quite old, leaving the Rough Guide as the easiest guidebook to find for the independent traveler (the Let's Go guide is good as well--and lighter--but has less detailed coverage).

4.0 von 5 Sternen As good as it gets 14. Februar 2007
Von Robert Cadloff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a very well-researched guide, and proved extremely useful on a recent 2 month trip to Vietnam. The food and lodging reviews were mostly spot on, with lots of useful practical information on getting to and from places. I've always liked the Rough Guides, and this one is right up there.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great travel guide to vietnam 26. Juni 2007
Von shutterbug T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As someone who is Vietnamese, I think that this is a great book for both Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese readers. In addition to being extremely detailed, it also has a great section with colored photos about Vietnamese cuisine that I think is great for those who may not be familiar to this country's unique flavors. Furthermore, at the very beginning, it has a top ten list of places to see in Vietnam for those who want to narrow down their trip to the most essential places.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Skip this one ... faulty information throughout! 8. Februar 2009
Von Beverly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I bought this book after the rave reviews received by so many other readers and have to say I was incredibly disappointed on many counts. I just toured Vietnam by motorbike for 2 months. My biggest complaint is that much of the information in the book is simply inaccurate. For example, the book says that in Dak Glei "there's another spectacular rong." In fact, there is no rong in Dak Glei. The closest one is 20 km away in Dak Wak, a completely different village. Similar mistakes occur throughout the book with almost every city. I was constantly finding myself saying, "Well, my guide book SAYS such and such should be here ...." until I finally came to disregard the book entirely. Unfortunately, those are things no reader can discover until they're actually there.

The maps are horrible. They may be OK if you are taking a bus from city to city and not venturing out of the backpacker areas ... but aren't most of you readers looking for more of a challenging and interesting adventure than that? I was, and the maps might as well have been non-existent for all the help they provided.

A minor complaint in comparison with the rest, but which might be more important for some of you: I wish I had paid more attention to the accommodation section before buying the book. They don't list actual prices when describing hotels, but instead use symbols which indicate a range of prices which can often be as broad as $10 - $40. Now most backpackers that are looking for a $10 room are going to find a $40 room. objectionable. Accordingly, I found that section to be very unhelpful. Additionally, although many hotels here have clued in to the fact that more and more travelers have laptops and that WIFI is an important amenity, Rough Guide has yet to realize or to note this amenity in their accommodation sections.

In the end, although I was often tempted to toss the book, I kept it to use as a rough 5 minute reference before heading to a new area or village, but on the whole found that I got much better information simply flying by the seat of my pants and asking the locals. I haven't seen or used the Lonely Planet guide so I can't compare, but I would save my money and skip the Rough Guide if I had it to do again.
