Product Description


...Lonely Planet, the intrepid traveler's bible...' --Los Angeles Times, April 2005 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Ryan grew up in Santa Cruz, California, which he left at age 17 for college in the Midwest, where he first discovered snow. All joy of this novelty soon wore off. His first job was in Chicago at a small muckraking publication where he had the impressive title of Managing Editor because he was second on a two-person editorial staff and the first person was called Editor. After a year of 60-hour weeks, Ryan took his first trip to Europe, which lasted for seven months and confirmed his long-suspected wanderlust. Since then his byline has appeared in scores of publications and he has covered everything from wars to bars. He definitely prefers the latter. He wrote Lonely Planet's Chicago and Moscow, co-wrote Texas, Canada and Western Europe, and coordinated Russia, Ukraine & Belarus, Great Lakes, Out to Eat - London, Netherlands, and Britain. In the future, Ryan hopes to add more warm-weather destinations to this list, although covering places filled with pubs is a novelty that never wears out. He currently lives in San Francisco and works as author liaison manager at Lonely Planet's Oakland office.

HASH(0xa2ae08c4) out of 5 stars So disappointing Oct. 11 2011
By Jennifer Findlay - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was terribly disappointed in this book. The maps are useless on the Kindle unless you use a magnifier. The information is slight. There is practically nothing about the culture of Bali or many of the fascinating places to visit. I guess I didn't take enought notice of the description before I purchased it. I was looking for a much more substantial publication with emphasis on the important cultural towns, temples and palaces.
This is fine as quick guide to places to surf, dive and eat, with a nod to the arts, but not much else. Even then the information is sparse. The title Bali Encounters should have warned me that was no depth to this very brief guide.

HASH(0xa2b8a660) out of 5 stars Perfect small travel book. Feb. 22 2009
By S. Winn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book holds so much information. It gives history and standard information about Bali as a whole. Then it explains city by city. In each city section they have the best of: eating, shopping, what to do and places to see. There are even price ranges on the restaurants, spas and temples or museums which is great too. The culture is also explained which is very important because Bali is filled to the brim with culture. They point out the best surf breaks and how to get there, along with if "this beach" is 4-6 feet, then "that beach" is 6-8 feet and so on. It helps you with the currency exchange and if you need to get a visa. Which I didn't know about until I bought this book. This book is very informative and small so you can take it with you on your Bali adventure.

HASH(0xa2a331bc) out of 5 stars Great Bali Book Jan. 9 2007
By Kristin E. Mccallister - Published on
Format: Paperback
I leave for Bali in 2 days. This came in time! Perfect pocket guide. The big Lonely Planet Guide is more in detail. Get both if you can. If not this one is the right one. Great maps, specific quick reference.

HASH(0xa2b79c6c) out of 5 stars Pointless for a kindle Sept. 19 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The maps were too small to be of any use, even when zoomed. The writing was not of the same standard I have found in other LP publications. Give it a miss.
HASH(0xa2b78234) out of 5 stars Bali Nicely Explained April 6 2012
By KMB13 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a perfect book about Bali to take along on your Kindle or other electronic reading device. The author not only gives you specific places to stay and eat, but he describes the people and the area in a way that makes a person want to visit. You can buy the big Lonely Planet guidebook for much more detailed information, but who wants to carry that big book around. This one is perfect.
