We’ve finally got around to adding in our Hue coverage — it’s still a bit of a work in progress — there’s a lot more tomb coverage to come, and even a do-it-yourself tomb map — but they won’t be online till around X-mas — think of it as a little gift from Travelfish to you.
In the meantime we’ve got coverage of a dozen or so places to eat, sleep and hang out, so we hope that keeps you going till then. Complete Hue coverage.

As some Travelfish readers may have noticed, there’s a new link in the right column of the Travelfish site — Buy an eGuide!
Travelfish eGuides bring together the best of the Travelfish site into easy-to-use PDF formatted mini-guides designed for specific destinations. Currently we’ve got four of a planned 24 eGuides available, Siem Reap & Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Vientiane in Laos and Phuket and Ko Phi Phi in Thailand.
The content in eGuides is taken from the latest Travelfish research and they’re densely packed with travel intelligence. Features include maps, comprehensive listings information and stories relevant to the destination.
They’re not free, but the price is very reasonable — in most cases less than the cost of a single beach massage.
All eGuides come with a seven-day money-back guarantee — if you’re not happy with the purchase, you can return the guide to us explaining how we missed the mark and we’ll refund your money.
Another advantage is that for 12 months after purchase your eGuide is updated as we update content. That means if we decide to update some information within your edition of a specific guide, all you need do is download a new copy and you’ll have the updated version!
Lastly, a copy of your eGuides are forever stored in your Travelfish account, meaning you can download your eGuide from anywhere anytime.
You can read more about Travelfish eGuides here.
PS Don’t fret — everything else on Travelfish remains 100% free — just like a coconut that fell into your lap.
