Not the best travel guide. But good.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Thailand (Flexibound)
I bought this just before I went to Thailand with my girlfriend. She has a big collection of Lonely Planet books for all the places she's visited, but I find they look a bit boring and drab. So I go this one. I've used Eye Witness ones in the past and love the pictures and the colorful approach to it all. Also, some useful maps inside.
However, it covers Bangkok in great detail and there was plenty there to work with, but as we were traveling around quite a lot, I found it quite disappointing in it's lack of details of some of the other areas of Thailand. Some areas, even popular tourist destinations, were sometimes covered in just a couple of paragraphs whereas other books, such as my girlfriends, Lonely Planet guidebook dedicated pages to them.
If you want a general overview of places with a more colourful presentation then this book is for you. More hardened travelers should look more towards the Lonely Planet books.
