Top critical review
Out of date by around six years - and no table of contents
on 15 June 2014
This book was originally written in about 2008 (judging by the number of references to events, laws and cultural changes taking place in 2007 and 2008 in the text). It appears to have been ever so slightly updated in 2012, but this is not much to anyone trying to navigate the quickly changing tourist activities (particularly with regards to transportation, prices, opening times and food recommendations) of Vietnam.
Given that Amazon have charged quite a bit for this book, it's unacceptable. They should make it very clear how out of date a guide book is and price accordingly to allow readers to make up their minds whether it's worthy. Really angry about this purchase.
It gets two stars from me as obviously the information on older, historical, sites would still be useful. No table of contents either.
