Where's the sense of adventure?!?!,
This review is from: Lonely Planet Cambodia (Country Guide) (Country Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition)
As with most LP books, too much detail! Its a real shame to see so many travellers who clutch their copy of the LP like it is a lifeline. The world is out there and there are so many people to speak to! They should be the source of the information - not the LP! So much in the LP is out of date and prices are wrong. Plus, u go to where it recommends and its full of tourists! Thats not good and is sooo boring!! Ditch the LP! Only good for reading the history bits.

I was in knee-jerk reaction mode and about to slag you off, you one star reviewer, you :) But then I read your comments, and you're absolutely right in what you say. I have to admit that I occasionally buy these Rough Guide to the Lonely Planet jobs, but really only for geography and transport details. I'd go further: avoid most of their advice, especially regarding places to stay. You only have to talk to people in a bar when you get there to get up-to-date and reliable info.
