3.0 out of 5 stars Best of a bad bunch., 13 July 2001
By A Customer
Far from being fully comprehensive, this guide is pretty vague. Not bad as a rough guide, and admittedly has some useful numbers that I don't know where else I would have found, which is the crux of this book's success. There is no real competitor (it would seem) that has backpacker budget information. If you are looking for a mid-price or luxury holiday then there are better guides. French Polynesia isn't exactly the budget travellers haven that Thailand or even Fiji can be and there are less options for the financially challenged tourist. However the guide could be a lot more comprehensive with the information there is available.
Do not take any prices or times in the book at face value - I found most prices a little higher in practice and times well out. But this is pretty normal with travel guides considering the time span between writing and publication.
It may be the best on the market for budget (hence the three stars) - but that isn't huge praise! Budding travel writers take note!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good research is essential, 6 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before going half way around the world to a previously unvisited place, it is worthwhile getting as much information and background as possible. This book gives good clear basic information but nothing in any great depth. Probably great for a few days on the way through to New Zealand - just enough information about the places and food.
