          This is the second Lonely Planet book I have bought. The book is packed with useful information. It is a book you will carry during your holiday. Very good value.

            The usual quality content you come to expect from a Lonely Planet guidebook.

            However, the 'physical' quality of the LP guide books have declined over previous editions. E.g. Faded or blurred print, pages aren't printed straight/misaligned
