A Good Book, But No Update for Three Years,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Insight Pocket Guide: Dubrovnik (Insight Pocket Guides) (Paperback)
For visitors to Dubrovnik and surrounding areas this is a useful guide which covers most of what you will want to know. There is a fairly thorough review of the old town and particularly useful is the coverage of the main excursions which you will be offered by numerous sellers once you get there. We went on a couple - The three islands tour and the Montenegro tour, both of which were very enjoyable. We also visited Lokrum Island by ferry, which I would recommend as a very cheap (£7.50 each) and worthwhile day out.
This is quite a short book. I did not feel the list of restaurants was particularly helpful as since this was written some have changed hands and in others standards have changed. Typical prices would also have been useful, but since the publisher has not updated this book in the last three years, the 2012 edition just being a straight reprint, I imagine he thought these would become out of date. This lack of updating does produce some anomalies. For example we learn that Croatia as due to join the EU in 2010 - it did not happen and still has not happened. I cannot think that updating such a short book would have been too onerous.
