3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Bad And Ugly!! 4 Mar 2008
By K. Fox
Lonely Planet - great for maps and local transport but thats about all! As any experienced traveller will tell you, the minute any restaurant, cafe or hotel gets it name in LP then its prices will double and the standards will half!
I also agree with some of the other comments here, why do they try so hard to be cool and why do they tell us what we should and shouldnt do?
An OK book but now and then leave it in your backpack and be adventurous.

5.0 out of 5 stars The SE asia bible! 29 Nov 2006
By N. Niemer - Published on Amazon.com
Used this book to travel in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Bali (though I finally ended up buying another book for Bali as Indonesia itself is huge). Don't know if there is a better book that covers so many countries this well. Other people on tour had the Rough guide to SE Asia book and we found this one to be more useful because it had better maps and more information.

Obviously a bit tailored towards backpackers but you can easily find more upscale places (hotels, restaurants etc) in the "splurge" section.

Wouldn't dare to say that it covers everything but certainly a must-have for people traveling in the area

This guide (like all their others) delivers what it promises. It is an excellent guide and an invaluable tool in planning and executing a successful "shoestring" trip. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars South East Asia 15 Feb 2008
By Janice Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Very good book, I was only interested in Thailand & Malasia but it gave lots of information. It did not give a lot on budget accomadation in some places.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one the only: Lonely Planet! 9 Sep 2009
By Bekki Rowlee - Published on Amazon.com
The Lonely Planet Guides are consistently the best travel guides for backpackers and other budget travelers. Their Southeast Asia guide is superior to all the other ones I have seen because it includes Myanmar (Burma)--along with a discussion of whether travelers should travel there or not due to the human rights boycott. Some of the details that you might have in 10 separate country-specific guidebooks are certainly missing, however, it's a lightweight compact quickie guide to a whole region of the world. Good for us.
