I have usually only bought DK Eyewitness guides but decided this time to also try this one from Lonely Planet and now I am converted!
While the Eyewitness series have always been good and useful, they tend to be more visual and easily digested. The Lonely Plant guide is rather the opposite.
At first glance, it looks "text heavy" but in fact it is incredibly well thought out and divided into logical regional sections and further sub-sections. It is simply packed with VERY useful information and great recommendations for things to see, do and places to eat.
We made heavy use of the restaurant recommendations and they were spot-on every time. Frequently fantastic eateries off the beaten track that we would never have found on our own.
The guide was clearly written by authors with an intimate knowledge and genuine passion for the subject. Loved the occasional "wink of the eye" style :)
In the end, I think that the 2 books complement each other well and will probably buy both for future trips but if forced to chose one, I would make the Lonely Planet guide my first choice.
And so we are here now and it is living up to expectations. I have been using Lonely Planet guides since 1989 when I quit my job for a 10 month odyssey to Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I am now married with 2 children but still using them. I have witnessed them becoming more mainstream, catering for families as well as more adventurous independent travellers. There was not too much competition in the 1980s but now there are many guides to choose from. I still almost always use LP guides. The only fault I could find with this guide was an incorrectly captioned photo. Recommended.
