2.0 out of 5 stars could be better
This is a very basic guide to Sri Lanka, was OK for me as only there for one week but for someone travelling around the island it would not be of much use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great companion in Sri Lanka, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Berlitz: Sri Lanka Pocket Guide (Berlitz Pocket Guides) (Paperback)
This was very handy book with burden of its weight. Small and compact and covers Sri Lanka. Fill in the missing detailed information when visiting places which is a sure joy. My only criticism is that thiese small guides need to be updated atleast once a year so this 2011 edition did seem bit out of date, saying that it did bring up a few surprises. So contradicting my earlier sentence I would say to really appreciate Sri Lanka go with outdated guides.

Berlitz guides generally - I use them as my first guide books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Cheerful, 2 Feb 2014

This review is from: Berlitz: Sri Lanka Pocket Guide (Berlitz Pocket Guides) (Paperback)
This cheap and cheerful pocket guide is only 4 inches x 5 inches with 144 pages but it is probably best value for money of the various publications about Sri Lanka I have read and dipped into. The writer is Gavin Thomas (he also wrote the more encyclopaedic Insight Guide) and this present pocket edition has been reprinted in 2014. It commences with a few pages on ‘top 10 attractions’ and ‘a perfect tour of Sri Lanka’ before packing in everything expected of a Berlitz guide – history, the people, religions, modern arrangements, landscapes etc. plus a series of divisions into ‘where to go’ and ‘what to do’, with information on eating, accommodation etc. and 20 pages on travel tips. Text is straightforward and the index is fairly comprehensive, photographs are small but informative, and maps are adequate. Recommended.

Excellent,but could do with more photos? The maps were useful and site reviews were adequate as a basis for the visits.

This review is from: Berlitz: Sri Lanka Pocket Guide (Berlitz Pocket Guides) (Paperback)
Outdated and pretty useless. Spend money on comprehensive guide such as lonely planet or rough guide (used both and probably as good as each other)
