Not what I expect from Lonely Planet,
This review is from: Thailand (Lonely Planet Country Guides) (Paperback)
I wouldn't recommend spending money on this guide. I found that it was out of date and many of the hotels/restaurants it lists no longer exist. I also expected the guide to be more honest so you know what you are expecting when you go somewhere e.g. it describes some of the loudest and busiest club venues as "beach bars". It failed to warn you about extra costs e.g. extra fees when arriving on an island. It's descriptions were all pretty vague. In the end we didn't really use it and left in our room in Thailand because it was just an unnecessary weight to carry.
