3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely photography but limited on information 1 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book along with The Rough Guide to Thailand to complement the Rough Guide as there are not many photos in the latter. The Eyewitness guide is very colourful with beautiful photography but I have hardly picked it up for detailed information finding the Rough Guide very comprehensive and detailed which is much more what I needed. I would say it is OK if you are going on an organised trip to Thailand but for independent travellers, I would recommend the Rough Guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars useful guide to thailand 13 Jan 2011
By jo
We have found this guide book to be very helpful and informative when planning a trip to Thailand, I especially like the emphasis on the visual - which sets it apart from other guides. Lots of information about Bangkok and the cultural and historic sites of the north. If you're planning to travel extensively around the islands of the south I would recommend supplementing this guide with a more in-depth guide to Thailand's islands and beaches. We also bought the Rough Guide which we found more helpful for local details and travel advice, but less interesting to look at. We bought a 'snap-map' of Bangkok too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best travel book I have ever read! 8 Nov 1998
By A Customer
If you are looking for a Thailand travel book, this is it. The many beautiful pictures and the well written articles on every aspect of Thai culture are invaluable for the traveller or the person who simply dreams of exotic locales. Definitely a must purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars The books are amazing! 16 July 2009
By C. Glew
I've taken one of these books to every country I visit, they're brilliant.
What's the point of reading pages of text, trying to decide where to go?
Look at a picture! If it's looks good, go there, if not, dont!
The maps are great and the illustrations are beautifully done.
I've critisised some of the recomendations for restaurants in the past, but I'm sure it's hard to get right all the time.
I've read other travels books and found them too full of uniteresting information, lacking pictures and basically too hard to swallow.
DK books are concise, interesting, good to look at and fun. Get excited about your holiday and buy one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Thailand DK guide 28 Nov 2012
By Yani
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like DK tour guides and I have lots in my house. I was looking a DK guide only for Bangkok but I couldn't find it that's why I bought this one.
It includes all different places in Thailand from the North, west, south, east and also has a section for Bangkok. If you are not traveling to the rest of Thailand and you only want to see Bangkok, try a different tour guide.
Other than that: perfect delivery, good condition, happy with the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality overview 14 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a really good quality overview of Thailand - great pictures and a wealth of information to help you set the scene for your visit. However, if you're looking for lots of detail this is not the one for you. i loved it and it has helped me narrow down where i want to visit. I'd really recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travel Guide 1 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I took my time and did some research, before buying,and this one was way out in front.Very well made, easy to read. So informative, walks you through. I'm going again this year and this already has a reserved space in the suitcase.

This beautifully published glossy guidebook contains an abundance of visually striking, highly professional photography. A few oblique angle illustrations of some temple sites would be a welcome addition to any guide. However, as a source of useful information, it is a disappointment. It is short on hard facts and will undoubtedly be left at home when the trip begins. For an easy-to-use format with more meat I preferred Fodors. At the other extreme, with everything you could possible want to know, is Footprint. The latter, however, is not so user friendly.
