Best-selling guide to this growth destination

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Nick es un londinense nacido en Watford, el tipo de pueblo que incita a viajar. Actualmente vive en Phnom Penh, y ha contribuido en innumerables guías sobre la región del Mekong, entre ellas las guías Lonely Planet Camboya y Vietnam, además de Sureste asiático para mochileros. Cuando no está escribiendo, se le puede encontrar en las partes remotas de la región trabajando como especialista de localizaciones o director de producción para la industria del cine y la televisión (ha trabajado en producciones como Top Gear Vietnam o Tomb Raider). Luang Prabang es uno de sus rincones preferidos del mundo, y le encantó poder explorar las famosas cuevas de Vieng Xai, que en su día albergaron al Pathet Lao.

En 1997, Greg visitó Laos por primera vez como mochilero. En ruta de Vientián a Muang Sing, pasó por lugares que por aquel entonces no recibían demasiados visitantes, como Vang Vieng y Luang Prabang. Cuando volvió al país 15 años más tarde le encantó comprobar que, a pesar de la afluencia de viajeros, no ha perdido su encanto indolente. Actualmente Greg vive en Camboya. Ha escrito cerca de 20 guías para Lonely Planet, principalmente del sureste asiático y la antigua Unión Soviética. Sus relatos de viaje han aparecido en varias publicaciones como: Sydney Morning Herald, South China Morning Post, BBC.com, Toronto Globe & Mail o Action Asia.

" So it was with surprise that some of the info in this book seemed like it was written sight unseen 26. November 2014
Von JungleMama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I've traveled the globe with Lonely Planet as my guide for 25 years. My travel companion for the trip to Cambodia had only traveled first class for business his whole life, so this mode of travel was foreign to him. But after a week of screw ups based on him disregarding the book, he, too, was reciting the mantra, "What does Lonely Planet say?"

So it was with surprise that some of the info in this book seemed like it was written sight unseen. Most particularly glaring was the gushing review of the country's largest waterfall, in Mondulkiri provence. Yes, it's enormous. But the road to get there is a spine twisting, skill crushing one hour with the reward of roaring waterfalls situated amongst what literally looks like a dump. Trash is prevalent all over Cambodia, as in every developing nation. But this was so bad, I wondered if it was possible to create a waterfall on a landfill. Run-down, dumpy, filthy, trashed. This was the only depressing and disappointing experience in Cambodia. It was a stop that would only be worth it if it were on the side of the road on the way to somewhere else. Unfortunately, these falls are not on the way to anywhere; they are a destination. And not worth even 10 minutes. The key to LP's success for more than a quarter century is in telling the truth. If the author had actually been to this site, he/she would not, in good conscience, been able to write such a glowing account.

Likewise, the author(s) never let on that Mondulkiri is just now emerging as a travel destination. It was written up as it were established. Overall, a traveler loves nothing more than to stumble upon a fairly undiscovered destination. However, the fact that LP didn't call this out caused confusion for us. It wasn't until we realized that tourism has just gotten underway in earnest in the past 7 months that the experience we were having there started to make sense. Additionally, the guide book sent us on a wild goose chase to the WWF offices to try to arrange a trek. After a frustrating hunt for the office, we were met by the patient, but clearly tired-of-this-routine WWF employee who kindly informed us that they do not organize tours and that the only people who sought them out were readers of Lonely Planet…due to the inaccurate information in the guide book.

Lonely Planet, your value is in your honesty and accuracy. When your readers start to wonder if you've actually been to the destination you have sent us to, you are no longer the trusted guide.

LP useful but not critical for Angkor 6. Januar 2015
Von Liam H Dooley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I only went to Siem Reap/Angkor and the stilt village about 1 hour away. So the review is about LP and these two places.

I love LP because it's available for Kindle, unlike a lot of guides, and has generally good and useful information at quantity - though at the cost of mediocre maps and almost no photos.

I found LP useful for the temples of Angkor Wat, as most of the temples had very limited to no written descriptions. LP tends to be outdated; even though they publish new editions, these tend to be a minimal update.

Just a few small tips that LP didn't emphasize well enough: 1) there are a lot of ATMs all over Siem Reap. LP suggested that there were just a few, but basically they were every 50 meters. 2) You can do a lot in 3 tiring, busy days: Small circuit, Large Circuit, then out-of-city excursion. LP tends to overestimate the time you need for everything, and as I result I stayed 5.5 days in Siem Reap with what was in the end a trip that was a bit slow.

As LP explained but I found absolutely impossible to believe, Cambodia uses two currencies simultaneously. Cambodian Riel for anything less than about 2 or 3 USD, and USD for anything more.

All told, however, again, LP was useful for this trip though I can see why one could get by without it much more than other places I've been, as the temples are easy to visit by following the circuits (that every Tuk-Tuk driver knows and every map has marked out), and in general the tourism industry is very well run in the city/region.

Great book 21. November 2014
Von teacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I just got back from a 3-week trip to Cambodia, and I used Lonely Planet to guide me. I would say that I am a "flashpacker," which is someone who is between a backpacker and a luxury, rich tourist. When I was in my 20s, I backpacked a lot around Europe and Asia, but now that I am older in my 40s, I prefer to stay in mid-range priced hotels. I still, however, travel around with a backpack rather than a suitcase on wheels. The Lonely Planet Cambodia guide fit my style of traveling perfectly.

Just a word of warning. Don't expect prices to be exactly the same as what is listed in Lonely Planet. Things change very quickly, especially prices, in this part of the world. Your best bet is to go online to confirm prices or just be flexible when you get to Cambodia.

The section on Phnom Penh is very good. I think the book covers all the main tourist attractions very well. The section on Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields is good. Unfortunately, the documentary at Tuol Sleng is no longer being shown, and there is no information whether it will return. The section on hotels is perfect. I stayed in a hotel that was top-rated by Lonely Planet and it was the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The restaurant section is extensive, but restaurants are always closing and opening, so it's best to check tripadvisor for this. I ate at several restaurants listed in LP. I only wish they had fewer western restaurants listed and more Cambodian restaurants. Eating at local restaurants in the capital was very intimidating for me, and I don't think LP gave enough guidance on it.

The sections on Siem Reap and Angkor Wat are brilliant! There are several very helpful maps on the temples and several tips on what order to see the temples in and when to see them. There is also a very detailed description of each of the numerous temples. I would suggest buying an extra guidebook on the temples.
Unfortunately, the rest of the sections are not as good as the first two. The southern part, especially the islands, is not very comprehensive. I actually think that is probably because this part is changing sooooo fast. There isn't a good listing of hotels and restaurants. Another section that is not very good is the northeast. This part of the country is becoming THE place to travel especially for backpackers. There isn't a lot of information for mid-range travelers. Your best bet is to go online to find out the latest information about this region and about all the treks. LP downplays this region, so I was not planning on going there, but when I got there I heard so many good things about Mondulkiri that I changed my plans after I got there.

A few things that are missing from LP is information on phones and technology. Bring a cheap flip phone with you in which you can use a local SIM card. Another thing that LP skimps on is the section on Cambodian food.

I like that LP picks certain hotels and restaurants for their TOP-CHOICES. This is helpful, but it could be much more helpful if they did it for each of the 3 levels of prices: top, middle, and low. The hotels that they select for their top choices are usually out of my price range.

I also like that they give itineraries for various lengths of travel--very helpful. They also do it for the major cities.

This is a great guidebook, and I highly recommend using it. Pretty much most western travelers use this book.

Just ok not great 15. Januar 2015
Von TH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Unfortunately we found the maps to be almost worthless and a lot of the dinner and shop recommendations impossible to find. The restaurants almost exclusively recommend places that were western food at western prices. I have many many lonely planet books and I felt like this one fell flat.
It's okay, but don't expect too much. 22. März 2015
Von Happy Guy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

It is an okay travel guide. You need some way to find those odd bits of information that are needed while traveling. I didn't find this particular guide to be particularly useful as guidebooks go (I wish Rick Steves would consider Cambodia to be Europe, so I could buy his guide). I used the Internet for planning and booking accommodations and used the guidebook on the trip. To tell the truth, I often used my tablet to look up stuff while traveling, instead of using the Lonely Planet guide. Then, again, China was always messing with me and hijacking my access to Google (do you believe that? I didn't at first, but every time I typed in Google, I ended up at a useless Chinese site. Shame on you guys!!).
