Extremely unhelpful, waste of money
on 17 August 2010
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.
