    It does cover the basics, but I would never EVER take any Lonely Planet information for granted without double and triple checking it online from other sources. In my opinion all travel guidebooks should be conducted with the assistance of locals to eliminate mistakes and gaps. After reading Lonely Planet Cyprus (I'm Cypriot), I realized that this is not the case (lots of mistakes a local would never make, lots of important info missing) and since then I'm more skeptical about anything I read in It does cover the basics, but I would never EVER take any Lonely Planet information for granted without double and triple checking it online from other sources.

It doesn't matter how long you're visiting a country for and how many expats you talk to. Locals will ALWAYS be more knowledgeable about their own country, and I don't see any Thai names among the writers of this book. Plus, I would have liked to know more about transportation options (i.e. ferry and bus timetables and routes), especially for Bangkok. Considering I bought it used for only 10 euros I'm quite happy with it, but I would have been disappointed had I paid full price.

    Granted I have not gotten to Thailand yet (later this year, I will!), I think this is a great guide to give you a good start in vacation/travel research. It does bring up ethics in regards to elephant sanctuaries (and does mention ones that allow elephant riding--which is a BIG no-no for elephant health), but misses out on some of the ones I've been researching separately. Overall, it has given me some ideas of where I want to go, and what places I want to avoid.

    The only flaw with this guide is that it barely talks about a town that turned out to be the most magical town I've ever visited: Pai. DO NOT MISS IT!! Rent a scooter in Chiang Mai and enjoy the beautiful scenery as you work your way through hundreds of curves to this quaint town full of love and laughter. WARNING: you'll stay there longer than you intended

    The last few Lonely Planet books I've used have been a bit disappointing. Their recommendations seemed very average and the maps only moderately useful. We also found the that the walking tours where a lot of tramping around without much explanation. Their explanation of the Thai language was helpful, however there were 3 different sections of the book we had to refer to depending on whether the phrases were food related (at the front), general inquiry (3/4 the way through) or glossary terms (in The last few Lonely Planet books I've used have been a bit disappointing.

This left us with a mass of bookmarks and lots of cross referencing. I think I'm a bit over LP and will just stick to clipping free online sources next trip.

    A beautiful country which definitely deserves at least a visit during a lifetime. This guide, however, shows up with some mistakes, reason why I always had to double-check its information before leaving to a specific place. Have in mind, though, that doing a personal research about specific details on Thailand transportations or attractions may be difficult and challenging.

    Well...what can I say. It is a guide book. Firstly, any guide book is going to have holes and of course, this one did. Nothing too big and nothing I could not figure out on my own, but after waking up at 5 a.m. to catch a supposed 6 a.m. ferry (and finding out that it did not start until 7:30) was a bit frustrated. Overall, a great guide for a even greater country.

    There is tons of useful information in this Thailand book. Most things in Thailand are reasonably priced so it was very helpful to have recommendations of hotels and restaurants. The street food is amazing! The maps are soooo helpful when looking for a beautiful beach to check out. I picked Phuket. I am so happy they gave me the advice to take a cooking class too.

    This book was really helpful for my two week trip to Thailand. I knew what to get, learn, and focus on to be respectful and have fun in Thailand. Well worth the money, and I will use this book for my NEXT trip to Thailand!! Foods, local tips, rules, currency......all in here.

    I enjoyed it but when visiting my "kids" in Thailand they notes that much of the information was not accurate, at least in their area of Thailand. On the other hand I was able to share a lot of information they didn't know and that was fun for us all!

    A useful and helpful guide to Thailand, although I find the Thailand edition doesn't give as good directions for taking transport between cities as other countries versions have done before.

    [2011.12.07] Used 2009 13th Edition to plan the Chiang Mai portion of our Nov-Dec 2011 trip (approx 3 days). Though a little outdated, it was sufficient.
