on LP guides: "Specialises in guidebooks and travel literature; those Lonely Planet guides lining the walls are authentic copies with readable maps - unlike the knockoffs you'll see on the street".

In Vietnam, you will find any copies of Lonely Planet books from anywhere. People carry a whole stack of many LP books around, and I guarantee with you that all of those are 100% faked books. It's cheap, of course, so the quality is not good, especially is the map. When I go to Cambodia and Singapore, I decided to buy a travel guide book and my friend introduced this shop. I review both the authentic books from this shop and the faked one from another seller, because at first, I thought it was kinda waste to buy an expensive book when I only use once. However, after comparing 2 type of books, I decide to buy the authentic one. The first reason was the quality. I don't like to read a story that out of no where, the words are being blur out or covered by another sheet. This happens in most of copies books. The map on the faked one was really bad.The second reason was the price. I thought it was expensive because it's an imported book. I was wrong. Comparing with many other books I bought before, the price of those authentic traveling books were not expensive much. It's reasonable, plus I got a discount as I bought the old versions at the sale period of the shop ;).At this shop, you also find many other things such as travel fictions (used and new), travel maps of local Vietnam areas, phrase books and photo books.
