5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with good info
I've found this a really helpful book to plan a trip to Chile. Its packed with valuable information and when I have double checked some of the details, it has turned out to be accurate. Maps are good too. Its usefully structured and it covers a range of styles of travelling, from backpacking to hotels with a suitcase which was great for me as I'm mixing it up for my trip...

3.0 out of 5 stars Paperback is still better
I would expect much more functionality from an e-book. Better links between relevant sections, and in particular, full resolution maps are an absolute must for the future. Search functions are limited at best.

Until substantial upgrades are made, paperback is still better. Even then, a book will still be less attractive to thiefs than your smartphone.

I'll be taking it with me of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD GUIDE TO CHILE, 26 Feb. 2014

This was bought to prepare for a month-long visit to Chile (which is soon to begin). So far it looks to be a good guide - up to the usual "Rough Guide" standards. it includes (almost) all the areas and topics we were interested in.

We will know better when we return - hopefully . . .

**UPDATE**
This did prove to be a very useful guide indeed, and gave us good leads to interesting places and worthwhile suggestions for eating and sleeping locations. We were quite satisfied with it, and would happily recommend it to other travellers.

I have used Rough Guides for many years and find the layout helpful. The unbiased information is good. Looking forward to my trip to Chile as I am well armed with my guide book. One cannot live by Internet alone!

The lonely planet is more accurate and up-to-date. I enjoyed the pictures and the style of the articles, but they really do need to rework the content.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, rather small pint, 12 Oct. 2013

This review is from: The Rough Guide to Chile (Paperback)
Loved the book and the interesting historical information as well as the recommended places to visit and eat. I just found the print rather small which necessitated getting glasses out which I don't usually need.
