'Compelling anecdotes and perceptive insights provide context for the wonderful photography throughout this love letter to Vietnam' - Outdoor Photography

Packed with evocative images and perceptive texts that capture the distinctive atmosphere of this beautiful country, this highly visual volume will be lapped up by anyone with a love of travel and photography.

An innovative mix of travelogue and armchair travel, this wonderful book is presented as an ideal photo album of a trip to Vietnam.

Each chapter reflects one of the traveller’s abiding impressions: the intense colours of the Vietnamese markets; the thronging city streets; the unique beauty of the country’s ethereal landscape … The book is also peppered throughout with reproductions of such mementos as posters, ticket stubs, newspaper cuttings, labels and postcards.

Nicolas Cornet has travelled extensively throughout Vietnam, and is the author of two other books on the country.
