This book is really poorly edited; several of the listed attractions/sights didn't appear in their corresponding maps, or appeared in the map of a completely different section. Furthermore, the Taipei chapter is horribly, horribly organized. Normally, Lonely Planet books are organized by location, and then by Sights, Nightlife, Food, etc., making it easy to plan trips to each location. However, the Taipei chapter is organized by Sights, Nightlife, Food, etc. and then subdivided by location. What this means is, if you want to find stuff to do in North Taipei, you're going to have to flip to six different chapters, find the right reference to the location, and write it down. It makes it such a chore, and if you're getting this book for Taipei in particular, turn away now.
Terrible editing, terrible organization, terrible product.
The organization of the book into various regions was extremely helpful for planning purposes as I wanted to make sure I saw culturally important things and not just touristy things. The fact that it listed The nearest MRT stop to each location in Taipei was also super useful as I could plan my trip around walking and using my Easycard.
The information about exchanging money and cell phone carriers proved essential as well. Taiwan has really good cell phone coverage in my experience, with speeds on my iPhone 6 exceeding what I get on my iPhone Xs in Seattle. This made it really easy to consult the various favorited/bookmarked places I entered into Google maps when I was stateside.
Disappointed that it only covers the popular places and some cities are not mentioned at all.
I suppose with any travel guide, it will be limited to what a first time visitor needs to see.
