5.0 out of 5 stars The Best travel guide ever written, 27 April 2011
This review is from: Southeast Asia on a Shoestring (Lonely Planet Shoestring Guide) (Paperback)
I bought this book prior to a 6 month trip out East with the kids and used it through every step of the planning and then visited just about every country in the book.
I found it to be a superb resource and an absolute lifesaver at times.

I estimate this book saved us hundreds of pounds and got us out of a few spots of bother by providing us the best information on the locations to find our accommodation. The border advice is all up to date and the book is full of maps that are a god send when you turn up in places like Jakarta off a 3am flight from Singapore.

The only problem we found was that some of their 'best pick' places were a bit suspect. In fact some were down right ridiculous and I am not convinced money/free beer didn't cross hands.

That said, I wouldn't dream of going back to the Far East without this beauty. Just ignore the 'best picks' and you'll be fine.
