Fed up with the traditional Lonely Planet I turned to the Rough Guide for an alternative view. While this guide gives detailed historical/background knowledge it severely lacks in the essentials, notably transport prices and detailed maps.�@There were just too many times when this book became a more of a frustration than a help. This book is best read before you go and left at home.
