"This [DK Eyewitness Travel: Top 10] might be the best traveling companion to throw in your pack. It's a slim and sleek overview… loaded with practical and useful content." — Gadling.com
"Known… for its four-color maps, photos and illustrations, the [DK] Eyewitness Guides are extremely user-friendly for travelers who want their information delivered in a concise, visual way." — Chicago Tribune
"The best option… Color photos, maps, and diagrams bring the place to life." — The Philadelphia Inquirer
The photographs are great, the recommendations are accurate, and the information and historical background they give on locations is phenomenal! We actually went with a personal driver and bilingual tour guide for the full 2 weeks, and we still used this book daily. The background information and tips are so good and you really get a feel for the places you visit knowing the history behind the sites.
We stayed at 3 hotels listed as recommendations in guide and loved them all. I can't speak for all of the sites in the book but we did Bangkok, Katchanburi, Lampang, Phitsanulok, Sukothai, Ayutthaya, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Phuket and the info for those cities were great!
It's also useful for a lot of the cultural notes for foreigners, covering everything from the wai, tipping, clothes to wear (especially at the wats), and common faux pas. Sure, a good deal of this may be available in online resources, but the book does a solid job of compiling this all into one travel-friendly resource, especially for those who may be outside of data networks while trekking across Asia.
Suggestion: if you're planning a self-tour, you may want to supplement or stick with Lonely Planet or Fodor's for more detailed explanations and practical logistics such as where to stay and eat.
