there are also tips for every type of traveler here in very detailed sections on every province in thailand. although it says islands & beaches there is a very good section on Bangkok city itself which is good as most people start & end up their Thailand vacation there anyway & spend some time in the city.
There are lots of maps and also trip suggestions.
Just like al other Lonely planets, you can see where and how much boarding and food (and other entertainment) costs.
It is a pleasure to read now before the trip, but it will be handy during the trip!
As for Bangkok, the info is lacking. The maps are ok, but are missing the smaller streets. Some of the info there is on the main city overview for "places to stay" but then dont have any descriptions for them in the body of the book. Weird. Doesn't seem to follow typical format. I suggest buying the LP Bangkok book instead. I ASSUME it is better and more comprehensive?
There is plenty of helpful information about places to stay and eat, accurate information about the amount of time travel and has great recommendations for recreational activities. Also it does not sugar coat the potential dangers and downsides of certain areas that are not the best places for westerns to travel.
