Just a quick announcement that we’ve added the Travelfish Guide to Vietnam’s Central Highlands to our collection of ebooks for sale. With 25 A4 pages, seven maps and over 40,000 words of condensed travel intelligence, the guide will be a handy addition to your travel planning. All this for just US$6.95 — less than the cost of day with the Easy Riders!
For people planning an in-depth trip to Vietnam’s Central Highlands, this guide is an excellent source of information. It covers six provinces in all, including two (Binh Phuoc and Dak Nong) that are not even mentioned in traditional guidebooks. Researched through the middle of 2007, this is far more up-to-date than other sources of information — the last of the research was completed a week ago! If you’re thinking of a taster out of Hoi An by motorbike, this Guide has especially comprehensive coverage of Kon Tum province, including useful advice for planning your motorcycle trip.
Weâ€™ve just added a new entry into our new book reviews section, with in-depth look at Rough Guide’s latest guide for Laos (released early 2007).

One of the most commonly asked questions by first-time travellers to Southeast Asia is “Should I take malarials?“. It’s a simple question, with a complicated answer, best summed up as “it depends”. We’ve just added a new story outlining ten points that we hope will help you make a more informed decision regarding malarials and travel to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. You can read the full story here: Should I take malarials during my holiday to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam?
