Great book to take on trip to India.
on 30 April 2014
I searched for the ideal book before going on my trip. I had the DK one for China and it was great.....so decided to go for this. It's fairly weighty but packed with info and maps and not too heavy to carry around in your bag. The one of the whole of India is great.....but far too heavy for use on the move. All my friends preferred this to the ones they had. Lots of pics and bite size info so you could dip in and out of it. We had a guide most of the time so I tended to use it to read up before about where we were going....and then to answer any questions I had after we'd been somewhere.....but the info is clear enough to use it instead of a personal guide. The hotels part is spot on as we stayed in several of the ones mentioned. I still look through my China one 3 years on and I'm sure I will often look back at my India one and reminisce too! The Delhi map is great.....personally I would have liked a fold out map of the north of India too so that I could follow our bus and train journeys. Thoroughly recommend this!
