It is estimated that by 2005, Vietnam will receive 6 million visitors per year. A complex country with a troubled past and environmental hazards, Vietnam has been largely inaccessible until very recently. John Jones, author of the first ever guide to the country, has traveled extensively through both the largely undiscovered North and the South, producing the most up-to-date picture of Vietnam ever to be published.

Unique to this guide is coverage of the central highland area (the Gia Rai Kontum province) which now features a national park. The author has also traveled through all provinces in North Vietnam, hiring landcruisers and local interpreters to cover every corner. The material on North Vietnam is thus the most up-to-date available.

With a strong focus on natural history and culture, this guide will also be of use for the business traveler and the general visitor.
