    The book is very useful for Philippine travel,has handy hints & tips,esp when arriving in a town a few hotel
    ,resort phone numbers are given along with a review.
    The list is not comprehensive but to give more a book of biblical proportions is needed.
    It's an excellent guide to get up & exploring places that may not be included.
    Over the years I've used Lonely Planet U.S.A,Canada,Thailand & 4 editions of Philippines.
    It really is a must have.
