Top Customer Reviews

By RR Waller TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 17 Oct. 2011
Format: Paperback
"Lonely Planet Encounter" books have been companions for many years and this is typical; updated regularly for reprints, although one may be unlucky to find outdated information as one reviewer stated, they are generally comprehensive and very helpful. They are also sensible sizes for carrying around and prices to help the pocket.

At 300 pages with the usual map tucked in the back, this is packed with details, colour-coded, lots of maps and pictures.

Take it with you!

Like all Lonely Planet Encounter books this is terrific - outstanding value, incredibly informative, pocket size and includes a pull out city and Subway map. This is perfect for a short to medium length trip. It's full of suggestions and info on obvious and not so obvious things to see and do. We found no problems with information accuracy although it is obviously impossible to keep every single detail of a city like New York constantly up to date!! Highly recommended.

Great little book for a short trip, I love the lonely planet format compared to the others such as rough guide or frommers. Clear and well laid out with good mix of reviews for any traveller.

very disappointing - had a trip booked to new york the first week of december and pre-ordered this latest edition which arrived just in time but some information was very out of date. we made a special trip to takashimiya which they claimed was the best department store to find it went out of business a year ago.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as useful 8 Feb. 2015

It was my first time in NYC and I think this book is for people who already knows the city.
2.0 out of 5 stars Too basic 29 Dec. 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Planos y mapas muy pobres
Faltan guías de transporte público, horarios, como prepararse para el clima
Una guía de Nueva York debería abarcar no sólo MAnhattan sino también el Bronx, Queens, etc

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and Handy! 12 Jan. 2011
By lgregory - Published on Amazon.com

This book is great for a weekend trip to NYC, the maps are accurate, the restaurant reviews are great and the tips were helpful. I have used several of the 'encounter' guides and none have let me down! I would just say if you are spending more than a week in NYC maybe you need a more thorough guide, but this one would do the trick either way!
