4.0 out of 5 stars Its everything you need to know about healthy travel in Asia, 1 Jan 2002
This review is from: Asia and India (Lonely Planet Healthy Travel) (Paperback)
Lonely Planets: Healthy Travel Asia and India is a gem of a book! If you are planning a trip to Asia or India be it backpacking or a tourist trip, this is one book you dont want to leave home without. It has very comprehensive sections starting from before you go, whilst you are there and even when you get back!
The area of healthy travel writing has always been a minefield, and one that has been quite under-representated, although this guide serves to redress the balance. The book goes into quite some depth with regards to the various hazards, diseases and infections that can be contracted whilst abroad, but also give you full information how to vaccinate and immunise before you go, and steps that you can take whilst there to reduce the risk of contracting them. Theres even a section on basic first aid and treatments for common ailments...even a cold or sore throat can seem life threatening when you are in a strange and foreign land when there isnt a Chemist just around the corner !
The books size is also well thought out...instead of a hefty tome, as it could have been, it has been condensed to a handy pocket size edition. Ideal to stow in the back of your suitcase, backpack or even First Aid kit.
If you want peace of mind before you go and whilst abroad, this is one book that you need.
Afterall, forewarned, is forearmed !
