Reviews - What do customers think about Insight Guides Bali and Lombok?
Has good high level maps/pictures, but little by way of reccomendations Feb 19, 2007
As we are planning a trip to Bali, this book does not provide you with a concise way to figure out what items are a "must-see" in Bali. It does have nice high level maps of each area of Bali (and Lombok - if you are interested) and colorful pictures, and breaks it up by region, but in no way helps you figure out what part of Bali to see, what to see in any part (and what isn't worth it) and where to stay. It is more a data repository of info rather than a perspective about what is good/bad. So if you want a list of everything with info about it, and not reccomendations, this book is good. If you haven't been there and need reccomendations, then this is not the book for you.
Okay guide Jul 23, 2006
I am glad to see Insight guides doing lots of guidebooks again. I used them a lot 15 years ago and appreciated their sophistication and depth. I am just back from Bali and took this new guidebook and a couple of others. Sadly it was just okay. The Lonely Planet guide was better in every respect, especially with regard to its restaurant recommendations. You feel like the Insight guy ate free a lot. But I do appreciate the photography in this book and a lot of its cultural coverage.
