Die Empfehlung von Vietnamtravelinfo

Lonely Planet ist einer der größten Herausgeber von Reiseführern für Individualreisende, denen der Abenteuer-Faktor ebenso wichtig ist wie niedrige Preise. Ob Busfahrten, Schiffsausflüge oder eine Limonade in den Bergen: Mit dem Lonely Planet haben Reisende schnell das Gefühl, welche Preise wo realistisch sind. Dabei kann durchaus mal ein Luxusresort, ein teures Restaurant oder ein exklusives Event vorgestellt werden - solange es ihren Preis wert ist.

Der Lonely Planet Vietnam enthält sehr viele Orte, auch abseits der touristischen Pfade, da die Autoren so gut wie überall halt gemacht und Infos gesammelt haben. So finden sich selbst Langzeitreisende, die jede Ecke des Landes in Ruhe bereisen möchten, mit diesem Reiseführer auch ohne fremde Hilfe überall zurecht.

Der inhaltliche Aufbau eines Lonely Planets ist zur praktischen Handhabung immer identisch: Den Highlights und Routen-Tipps folgen Hintergrundinformationen zur Geschichte und Kultur, zu Essen & Trinken und zu Land & Leuten. Die Kapitel präsentieren die großen Städte und die Orte, Nationalparks und Sehenswürdigkeiten der einzelnen Landesteile. Reise-Infos und Angaben zu Verkehrsmitteln und Gesundheit runden den Reiseführer ab.

Über die Autoren

Nick Ray

A Londoner of sorts, Nick harks from Watford, the sort of town that makes you want to travel. He studied history and politics at university, which condemned him to be drawn to strange events in strange places across the globe. After stints with London magazines and tour leading in countries as diverse as Vietnam and Morocco, he hooked up with Lonely Planet in 1998 and has worked on more than 20 titles over the following years. Cambodia is his backyard and he has worked on several editions of the Cambodia guide, as well as Southeast Asia on a shoestring and that international bestseller Cycling Vietnam, Laos & Cambodia. He is also happy exploring the neighbourhood and has worked on Lonely Planet guides covering Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. Southeast Asia may be home, but he is not averse to mad missions in Afreeka and has been known to hang around in tourist hotspots such as Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

When not exploring the globe for Lonely Planet, Nick writes articles for leading magazines and newspapers, including The Sunday Times and Wanderlust, and leads and lectures on tours for leading travel companies and international organisations. He also works as a location scout and manager for the world of television and film, including Tomb Raider, Two Brothers and countless documentaries for the BBC, Discovery and National Geographic.

He currently lives in Phnom Penh, but is just as likely to be found in Siem Reap, Luang Prabang or Hoi An, three of his favourite places in the region. To date, he has sampled the beers of more than 70 countries and one day hopes to have tried them all. Primus of Rwanda comes in scary sized bottles and Salva Vida of Honduras has to be the best name for a beer, but it is hard to beat the crisp flavour of Beer Lao, best served on draft on the banks of the Mekong in Vientiane.

Yu-Mei Balasingamchow

Yu-Mei lives and writes in her native Singapore, but she's hardly a homebody. As a child, her family often ventured on roadtrips down the highways and byways of neighbouring Malaysia. As a young adult, she ducked out to the United States for a liberal arts education (and more rolling highways). Travelling on her own, she's perched on Prague's Charles Bridge at dawn to commune with the statues, gatecrashed a high school graduation luau in Honolulu for some great grub, and Froggered her way across traffic-frenzied streets in Bangkok and Hanoi. She is the co-author of Singapore: A Biography, a popular history of Singapore, and for Lonely Planet she's covered Vietnam and Korea.
