In preparation for my trip to Thailand & Cambodia, this book really give you a feeling for the countries and their people. I still would have included maps.. but you can't have it all..

This is a guidebook based more on travel literature than specific linear detail. Coupled with other more traditional forms of trip research, this does well to fill in the romance void.

Terrible layout for a guidebook, but still has some pretty good info. We took the advice of one writer and went to Beng Melea when we were in Angkor, Cambodia and it was indeed the highlight of the trip. We would have never have found out about it otherwise. I basically figured out what cities we were going to and wrote down any info I thought we could use. It filled one sheet of paper. I would recommend you doing the same.

Great travel stories and suggestions. We took a wonderful two day boat trip up the Mekong River in Laos after I read about it in this book. Good advice for the SE Asia traveller and great reading for the armchair traveller.

Disappointing travel book for me. Not really a guide, but a series of blurbs written by travelers there with their favorite restaurants, shops, etc. Hardly a practical book to take along.

Loved the recommendations for Som Tum and several other of my favorites from afar...."Soul Food" for me and a great read. Really took me back to Southeast Asia, my second home.

AS A GOODREADS READER: I only review books I like. I would rather recommend books that mean something to me than write about books that don't.

AS AN AUTHOR: Born in Seattle and raised throughout Washington State, I lived in Vietnam for four years and still travel to Southeast Asia frequently. A former independent bookseller, I'm the author of the historical novel "The Map of Lost Memories," an Edg
