Thailand's beaches and islands

Rough Guide Thailand's beaches & Islands

The travel book is great! The section on Bangkok is also very helpful as almost anyone coming/going to Southern Thailand passes through.The book is small and much more convenient than the larger country wide or SE Asia guide books. If you are just going to Southern Thailand.. this is all you need. The format is clear. The prices were a tad off, but this seems to be the norm with guidebooks

Eye Witness Bali & Lombok

Eye witness: Bali & Lombok

Colorful traveling guidebook in a highly practical format, leaving no mystery as to whether some place or item may be of real interest to the individual reader. Therefore, reader can figure out what he/she wants to see & do without slogging through chapter upon chapter of text. I spend a lot of time in Bali and I think this is probably the most useful guide for the average traveler to Bali & Lombok.

Angkor: Celestial Temples of the Khmer

Built between the ninth and the thirteenth centuries by a succession of twelve Khmer kings, Angkor spreads over 120 square miles in Southeast Asia and includes scores of major architectural sites.

Japan (Eyewitness Travel Guides)

Japan (Eyewitness Travel Guides)

This is sort of a "Japan! Wow!" type of guide, full of eye-popping graphics and catchy factoids. It is a very fun guide, and does a great job of engaging enthusiasm for Japan and its wonders. Nothing off the beaten path here, only the major attractions of each city/region are represented. It is wide but not deep. Pricing information and such is well done, and gives an accurate picture of what to expect. Tidbits of culture and history help explain what you will be seeing and make for interesting overall reading.

Rough Guide: Vietnam

Rough Guide: Vietnam

Just came back from a three week trip to Vietnam with three books: the Lonely Planet, the Rough Guide, and Footprint Handbook. The Rough Guide is the best guidebook around for the country. It is superior to the Lonely Planet guide in the breadth and depth of coverage and especially its accuracy. I liked LP for other countries but here they did a very poor job. I have not found even one instance where Lonely Planet provided information that Rough did not have.
