Indonesia (Country Guides),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Indonesia (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
The guide is not good - compared to previous editions important information was removed and criteria to include some items does not seem logical. For instance, some places have really few options for accommodation but include very expensive options - it is perhaps not the most useful for the target readers group - and it is easy to find those in the internet.
Some extensive and of doubtful value for travelers descriptions about certain service providers that clearly are very good marketing for those services - not really what I expect from such a guide.
Evaluations are often exaggerated and one is often disappointed.
Large parts of the country simply ignored! And too much focus on surf ...
Very short on maps - other guides of LP are much better!
