Reviews - What do customers think about Adventure Cambodia: An Explorer's Travel Guide?
Out of date, not all that great. Jul 27, 2006
The book I received in July, 2006 was published in 2004 - NOT 2005, as indicated. It doesn't contain contain any information that you can't get from other guidebooks - and the information on specific sites is sketchy. Maybe it is useful if you plan on touring on a motorcycle, but otherwise, there are more current guidebooks covering the same places more effectively.
Recommended Apr 29, 2005
I spent several weeks in Cambodia and this book was very helpful. Of course things change so rapidly in Cambodia that no travel book can be completely up to date, but this book had helpful service and attraction information for every town I visited in five provinces. I looked at some of the other books available and this one was clearly superior (although it would be nice if it had had an index!)
I was also impressed that quite a few Cambodian and western owned bookstores and tourist businesses I visited in the country recommended this book.
Daughter Apr 5, 2005
The only reason I am rating this book a 1 is to get my father's attention - Matthew Henry "Jake" Jacobson. I have not seen or heard from you in 10 years. Hope you are enjoying your travels in Cambodia more than you enjoyed your daughter.
This is the book for Cambodia Aug 19, 2004
Finally I found it on this site again! I bought this book and went on a 3 week motorcycle ride from Phnom Penh to Banlung and then a quickie trip to Sihanoukville. Every stop along the way, this book helped and informed me and my two friends. With the Rough Guide we had all the information we needed -- I didn't find the LP Guide needed at all in the end. Especially useful and interesting were the pages on the "Death Highway" in Mondulkiri. My copy got muddy and well worn; the sign of a good value and important guide, if you ask me.
Read this book before going to Cambodia! May 10, 2002
The safety tips are outstanding. In depth coverage of every region of the country. The only reason I didn't take it with me to Cambodia was that Lonely Planet had more phone numbers of places to stay and I lost the included map of Cambodia that comes with this book. If this book had had printed in it a map of the entire country, then this would have been the book I would have taken. Great read before going however!
