The Lonely Planet books are very useful for all budgets, covering backpackers to those who like to splash their cash. This book covers all the Thai islands and coastal areas, as well as an extensive section on Bangkok.

It includes details of transportation between all the different areas which is really handy if you are making your own way around Thailand, and there are tips on scams to avoid etc. It also includes the usual information of accommodation, eating options, things to do etc.

I would highly recommend getting this book if you are planning to travel around Thailand as it will be an invaluable source of information.

This book isnt as big as the other country guides from Lonely Planet which is ideal for shorter trips. We were only in the islands and Bangkok and was super useful for our trip.

Plenty of information, some good illustrations, decent maps of the islands and their resorts, very good purchase for travellers in Thailand.

Great information on the country that is aimed at the independent traveller. Good info on all sorts of subjects from food, travel , place to visit etc. We are going on an organised trip so not sure how relevant alot of this would be for us but an interesting read to find out more about Thailand itself. Small enough to pack even for a backpacker

Arrived in good time and very useful. Everything you need to know about traveling around Thailand and the islands. Would be better if you didn't have to keep converting the prices from Thai baht.

After spending a month recently in Thailand exploring Bangkok and 3 islands I can confirm this book was absolutely useless. The reviews of accomodation are so general, everything sounds the same and are very misleading. It does not state simple facts such as if it is clean, if there is air conditioning, and if the location is good. It seems as if whoever has written this book has only viewed the places from the very misleading websites. The only good aspect of the book is the general information at the beginning warning you of scams etc to look out for, and aspects of Thai culture to follow. However I am sure this information can be found on any good website. I would highly recommend you buy a different guide book that knows what it is talking about, this one has clearly not done the sufficient research to be advising people.

I bought this book to do some research prior to my holiday in Thailand, I plan to visit Bangkok, then Koh Phangan and Koh Samui. I found the sections to be clear and thorough and enjoyed the extensive section on Bangkok itself as well as detailed sections on each island. This book will be a great reference point when I am travelling and would highly recommend it.
