        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.
