Very helpful book. I love the pictures since I'm a very visual person. I've used this book for years as I live in Thailand.

I hate travel guides, but they are so necessary. There is a good introduction in this book. The relevant Places, however, left a lot to be desired. Do not follow advice for hotels, restaurants or other necessary places. Check Thai/Asian magazines for better options.

Once a travel guide is written its already out of date. I used this for the cultural pieces, maps, practical info, etc. But when it comes to the pages of hotel and restaurant recommendations I skipped right along.

I always take LP but the DK guides are so much more visual. The detailed diagrams are beautiful before, during and after a trip. I've lost count of the people who asked to look through this book.

I am going to give this book 3 stars for now. All the information seems useful but once I actuallly go on my trip Im sure I will be able to rate the book more acuratly

A great guide covering many aspects of Thailand and with the usual great features. A return to form for DK guides after the lows of Singapore and Bali.
