As a regular visitor to Bangladesh, I'm keen on keeping up to date with the latest that Bangladesh has to offer. I've found previous editions of the Lonely Planet Guides to Bangladesh very informative and well-written.
I was really looking forward to the latest edition of the the guide. However, when I saw how much information it lacked (You can't expect people to have bought previous editions) and the lacklustre writing style, I was compelled to return it ASAP.
I was deeply disappointed with what I read and I strongly suggest to all those who want to buy a guide to Bangladesh to not buy this edition, but try and get hold of a previous edition. The current edition lacks background information and history, and is only half as thick as previous editions.Bangladesh (Lonely Planet Country Guide)
