No fancy glossy pages and colorful pictures...but all the info you actually WILL need. Great and detailed information on all the different sights, hotels, etc.

I'm using this along w/ Trip Advisor and friends' recommendations and so far it helped a whole lot in planning my trip :)

More choices than Rick Steeve's but not as detailed in facts and hints.
