The latest in the batch of Moon Handbooks releases proves again that Moon is one of the finest travel series around. What sets Moon apart from most guidebooks is the attention to detail, and more importantly, a respect for the topic.
From the Author
The original travel guide to the South Pacific islands.
Since July 1979 the South Pacific Handbook has gone through seven editions, incorporating the experience of numerous visits. During the first 20 years of its life my book was the only standard guide to Pitcairn, Niue, Wallis and Futuna, Tokelau, and Tuvalu, hidden areas only now being "discovered" by other publishers. South Pacific Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of everything from Easter Island to the Solomons, with major chapters on Tahiti, Cook Islands, Tonga, the Samoas, Fiji, New Caledonia, and Vanuatu - fifteen countries and territories in one portable volume. It's a practical travel guide which describes the whole range of accommodations options from beachside campgrounds to smart designer resorts. Getting around by bus and boat is examined in depth, and information abounds on sporting activities such as scuba diving, kayaking, sailing, hiking, and riding. No freebies or favours were involved in the research, thus ensuring consistent, independent reporting. South Pacific Handbook also serves as a primary reference work with 129 two-colour maps and 28 charts. This edition we've added hundreds of e-mail and website addresses, allowing readers instant electronic access to the South Seas. I hope you find my book a valuable tool.
