This book is beautiful. It really brings back memories of my overland trip around Asia and covers everything from the food to the music to the people. The pictures are fantastic and cover everything from beautiful scenery to the local people. I cannot recommend this enough - if you have travelled around Asia then it's a must buy.

Coffee Table Touring 31 May 2008
By Nino Brown - Published on Amazon.com
In this large-sized pictorial, Lonely Planet takes you for a quick trip through each country in Asia (minus Russia). Each entry contains dazzling photographs, most featuring the people of Asia rather than scenery, and several paragraphs providing basic information about each country and/or a few fun facts.

The book is worth buying, or at least perusing, simply for the fine photography. Lonely Planet does a great job of visually exposing the reader to the diversity of Asia's people without descending too often into the sentimental or cliche. One really does get the sense of having a traveler's-eye view of the countries (albeit without the less scenic elements one would certainly encounter in real life). The writing is, on the other hand, merely adequate. The country descriptions are so brief as to be of little use. The additional commentary provided for each country can be, at times, pithy, but just as often is formulaic or bland. That said, coffee table picture books do not require fine writing when the photography is sufficient to tell the book's story. You'll find this book reminds you of the vacations you should have taken that the photography you wish you could have produced.

Great concept, just a few flaws... 11 Jan. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was really excited when I heard about this book. I took it out of the library and read it cover to cover in a surprisingly short amount of time. It's a really big book, so I thought it would have taken me longer to get through. Here-in lies my first disappointment: I wish there was a little more meat to it. The text about each country is really interesting, but it left me wanting more. Same thing with the photos: really, really lovely photos, only I wish they printed twice as many. I wanted to see pictures of what I was reading about, so I found myself looking things up on the internet because there wasn't a photo in the book. At times the writing can be pretty amusing, especially with the quirkier, lesser-know countries. I felt like a few countries deserved more text, pictures, etc. I really liked the book, especially since I can't really find another quite like it. I only wish it could have taught me more, had a little more to offer. But I still give it four stars. I'd say well-done, a nice over-view.
