Vietnam Travel Haiku - Lonely Planet Turns Racist - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Lonely Planet Vietnam
between some of the lines
Chinese haters

We found so much written with an anti Chinese undertone in Lonely Planet Vietnam as we started using it. The last thing a travel guide should do is spread racism of any kind. I was terribly disappointed with the book. i found out that one of the writers is a japanese girl who covered much of her face in her photo for the guide.
