Missing Pages 48 to 72, almost the entire Ho Chi Minh City chapter!
on 7 February 2014
I bought this book back in September as I was planning a trip to visit northern Vietnam including Hanoi and Halong Bay. I often by DK Eyewitness books as I prefer visual guides, and like others in my collection this one is great.
Before my trip, I only read the introduction which gives and overview of Vietnam, and the chapters about where we planned to go. HOWEVER, when on my trip in January, I read the entire book, or at least tried. I discovered that pages 48 to 72 are missing! The book does not appear to be damaged at all, I think it must be a production error, but as I bought the book way back in September I cannot work out how to contact amazon and complain about being sold a faulty product! I am hoping that if the seller reads this, and it does turn out to be a production error and the books have been recalled, I can hopefully get a replacement, so that if I visit southern Vietnam including Ho Chi Minh City, I don't need to buy another book!
