Easy to read, good mix of pictures and words
on 12 April 2013
We chose this (i) because of the publication date and we knew that things were changing quickly in Myanmar and (ii) recent negative experiences with other popular travel guides so wanted to try a different brand. Because of our previous preferences the navigation took a bit of getting used to but clear index and contents pages and format helped to quickly work out where you were. Good and easy to read book to prepare for your trip to this amazing country, we also liked the colour (rather than b&w) and the way that it was written. We would definitely look at Insight guides again in the future. Other useful aspect is the way the book is constructed - the spine is well stitched so you can really fold it back and "use it" properly rather than worry it will fall apart.
Only negative is the language section - not very comprehensive and missing some basics and we would have liked more maps and some blank pages for our own notes - but these aren't deal breakers for not buying.
