"National Geographic Traveler: Vietnam, 2nd Edition" covers all the major sights, from the lovely parks and lakes of Hanoi to the magnificent Ha Long Bay and hill-tribe villages tucked away in jungle-covered mountains. The guide visits all major sites, and lesser known ones as well, including the DMZ, Nguyen tombs, the ancient village of Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong Delta, and Cat Tien, where Jayan rhinoceros, Siamese crocodiles, and many different types of monkeys reside. Go to a water puppet show, take a cooking class in Hoi An, and learn about Hue's fabulous garden homes.
