Reviews - What do customers think about Laos & Cambodia (Insight Guides)?
Great guide, lots of photos Feb 28, 2006
This is a well-rounded book, with information about history, the people, the sights, the geography, and lots of really good photos. It was especially valuable to me because I was going to both Laos and Cambodia and didn't want to have a book for each of them. If you're looking for a guide that will tell you how to get from A to B, where to stay, where to eat, and so forth, you should probably look to Lonely Planet or Rough Guide. I was on a very small tour, so I didn't need those details and it met my needs very well.
Great Information Source for Laos & Cambodia Jul 8, 2005
This Insight Guide is very complete and informative. Having been to Cambodia, I can say first hand, that this is probably the best tourist guide available for that region.
Excellent Jun 17, 2004
The photographs in this guide are stellar and the writing is clear and strong. I found every necessary detail needed for planning my trip in this book and learned a great deal about the culture before embarking on my travels. Wonderfully done!
Beautiful.... Oct 20, 2000
Insight Guides are useful as both travel guides and picture books.The info is short but concise and the wonderful color pics give you a really nice idea about what the destination spot looks like ( or looked like,as the books are also good for memory/photo albums). This volume is very useful for the traveler to the little known countries of Laos and Cambodia as it covers all areas of both countries and not just the big cities and main attractions. I especially found the info on coastal Cambodia interesting as it's hard to find detail on this beautiful place in other travel books. A must for the Asia traveler....
