Adventure Cambodia bears a resemblance to Lonley Planet in terms of organization and layout but the similarities end there. The average backpacker would run for cover if faced with visiting all of the the destinations in this book. This book contains almost 50 maps, more than triple of any other guide book. The travel information is accurate and easy to follow for public transportation or by motorcycle or car. Adventure Cambodia provides practical information on how to reach and enjoy some of Cambodias accessable and least accessible destinations. The authors love for the country is apparent throughout the book as is their extensive knowledge of Cambodias turbulent history.
