Absolutely gorgeous...and deceptively informative (Amazon reader review)
A pleasurable read with ravishing photography plus maps and plans of supreme quality. (The Observer)

What's the point of reading pages of text, trying to decide where to go?
Look at a picture! If it's looks good, go there, if not, dont!
The maps are great and the illustrations are beautifully done.
I've critisised some of the recomendations for restaurants in the past, but I'm sure it's hard to get right all the time.
I've read other travels books and found them too full of uniteresting information, lacking pictures and basically too hard to swallow.
DK books are concise, interesting, good to look at and fun. Get excited about your holiday and buy one!
However, it covers Bangkok in great detail and there was plenty there to work with, but as we were traveling around quite a lot, I found it quite disappointing in it's lack of details of some of the other areas of Thailand. Some areas, even popular tourist destinations, were sometimes covered in just a couple of paragraphs whereas other books, such as my girlfriends, Lonely Planet guidebook dedicated pages to them.
If you want a general overview of places with a more colourful presentation then this book is for you. More hardened travelers should look more towards the Lonely Planet books.
