Publication Date: 1 Mar 2006 | Series: Lonely Planet Phrasebook
The Lonely Planet phrasebooks have good cultural backgrounds and offer solid advice for challenging situations in remote locations. Includes phrases for finding accommodation and for health needs and emergencies.
For anyone spending more than just a few days in Indonesia, it's a very useful tool, but also a simple intro to the language (which will always tell you a bit about how people in Indonesia think and see their world). Some people will still want a larger simple dictionary, but this phrasebook is really easy to have at hand at all times, due to its jeans-pocket size and light weight.
This book is small (pocket size) but is packed with useful and essential information for your trip to Indonesia. Take this book with you, study it and you will be able to find information on speaking Indonesian, booking into hotels, arranging travel and dealing with emergencies.
