By Robin R
Format:Paperback
This is one of the worst guidebooks I've ever picked up. I've travelled all over the world (6 continents) over the past 12 years and never been so disappointed with a guidebook. The information was inaccurate and out of date. The guidebook was allegedly published in August 2008, but when I used it Nov 2008-Jan 2009, much of the information was at least two years out of date, so don't buy this guide just because it's recent. (We wondered if the writers even bothered to make a serious effort at updating information for the new edition.) And I'm not sure what Lonely Planet's target market is going forward, but there was very limited information on budget accommodation options. I was shocked and dismayed that the Lonely Planet took the time and space to list a resort on Rai Lay East that costs (literally) thousands of dollars a night, but had left out some reasonable budget and mid-range options! If they have extra space and want to add in uber-luxury places for interest, that's one thing, but list those resorts at the expense of reasonable accommodations is not appropriate in a Lonely Planet guide, IMHO. This guidebook was consistently, constantly disappointing. We primarily relied on an older Rough Guide for information on sights and on-line resources [...] to find accommodations.

I've used other Lonely Planet books and this one didn't disappoint. We actually forgot it in one place and were fortunate enough to find another at the next stop!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thailand Islands & Beaches Jan. 30 2007
By K. Brucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is particularly helpful as it contains many detailed maps. As well, the accomodation section is very useful for the traveler who does not have any set plans as it helps to show several different price ranges from budget to high end & includes phone numbers & websites of them frequently.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars must have April 10 2011
By mattie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a great guide. Lots to read about Culture, history, itineraries etc. Mostly in black and white, but also some nice color pictures.
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the Beaches, not so good for Bangkok June 1 2011
By Needful Toyz LLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book had exactly what i was looking for when on holiday at the beaches of Thailand. One thing that would be nice would be some more photos! Its nice when you dont know where you want to go, and you can flip through to see a color picture or two of the areas of interest. LP please add color photos!

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?

I used this exclusively to plan and guide my trip to Thailand. Make sure you get an updated version because the info like prices goes out of date quickly. Good product in good condition. fast shipping. no problems. Adding wording here because I am required to have a certain amount of words in my review. I have little to say because everything went as expected with this transaction.

Ive been to Thailand a couple of times and usually take a guide book along so that I can see what sights are in a particular area. This book is pretty outdated so hotel and restaurant info is probably not up to date but it is still a useful book.
