Hanoi & Northern Vietnam Footprint Focus Guide by Claire Boobbyer

"At Saigon one exists; at Hanoi one lives," wrote one 19th-century French visitor. Stroll along the elegant tree-lined boulevards and admire the weathered colonial buildings while in the distance ultra-modern office blocks shoot up from the ground. Few places sum up Vietnam's history and future like Hanoi, while the Northern country retains what every visitor is looking for: the beauty of unspoilt Vietnam. Footprintfocus will guide you around Vietnam's charming capital and north, giving useful advice on what to see and do along the way. Perfect for intrepid travellers, there's an ideal balance of must-see destinations and little-known gems. * Essentials section with indispensable information on getting there and around. * Comprehensive listings of where to eat, drink and sleep. * Detailed street maps to help you find your way around. * Slim enough to fit in your pocket. Packed with practical and detailed advice on how to navigate this fascinating region, this concise Footprintfocus guide will help you get the most out of your trip without weighing you down.The content of Footprintfocus Hanoi and Northern Vietnam guide has been extracted from Footprint's Vietnam Handbook.
