When I'm planning a trip there are certain travel books that are my go-to guides. Turns out that many of my go-to companies do not publish a book on Sri Lanka. Seriously?

Normally the Lonely Planet series books are useful and close to the the reality/Truth.

This book completely missed the mark in many ways.

To Authors: Ryan Ver Berkmoes, Stuart Butler and Amy Karafin: PLEASE read the well researched, valuable Huffington Post article and update your kindle version and/or update your next version of the book.

Le livre que vous verrez dans les mains de tous les touristes. Et avec raison. Tous les Guesthouses et restaurants suggérés se sont révélés plus que satisfaisants. Le guide ne se gène pas pour donner avec justesse les + et le - des attractions proposés.
À l'exception des prix qui étaient près de 50% plus élevés que ceux mentionnés, aucun détails de ce guide n'étaient faux ou imprécis.
I found the bits of information available in here of use when I was in the country and visiting the sites.

However, I'm very surprised that there is no mention of the huge number of dogs that can be found all over the place in the country.
