Great books ! But do you need it ????
on 17 February 2017
If your planning a back pack holiday or just a holiday that is not a package holiday, a holiday where you are sorting everything out yourself ( I did to Malaysia) then these books from the Lonely Planet are essential !
If you are on a package holiday I would save your money for your holiday as most of the information will not be of use to you and will probably be told to you by your guide anyhow.
One last piece of advice is don't buy a publishing version older than 2 or 3 years, a hell of a lot can change in that time, hotel names etc as I found out once.
This particular guide I bought second hand for my holiday in 2016 in South Africa, It was an organised tour 17 days on a coach, as a result I hardly opened the book, there was more than enough information given by our tour guide, not a great loss as I got it for a cheap price, but a lesson learned, keep the money you would pay for it for a couple of cold beers on your holiday ;-)
