Not quite the usual Lonely Planet gem

  • Informative

Cons

  • Disappointing

Best Uses

  • Reference
  • Travel Reading

We bought Discover Spain in preparation for a recent brief (1 week) trip to Spain hoping it would have the usual Lonely Planet characteristics of up to the minute, humorous, vital information penned by true insiders. And it was good, but not as great as we were expecting - we were looking for a bit more post-GFC gossip, more on the latest trend for gintonics (and suggestions for the best bars to find them) - just a bit more of the stuff that makes Lonely Planet guides so unique. Maybe the problem is with the 'discover' series? But it left us wanting more.
