These pages include lots of information on Vietnam for actual travelers, armchair travelers, and people curious about Vietnamese history and culture.

The annotated bibliography includes books by some of my favorite Vietnamese writers, like Nguyen Huy Thiep and Le Minh Khue, titles by brilliant Westerners who wrote wartime classics (Graham Greene, Michael Herr, Tim O’Brien), and the names of some wonderful young Vietnamese-American writers just beginning to publish, like Dao Strom and le thi diem thuy.

If you are planning to travel to Vietnam yourself, you can find special tips on things to do and places to see there, many in pdf format, so you can print them out and carry them along with you.
