Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing - Glad I had an alternative There was a time when Lonely Planet guides were the gold standard for the independent traveler, however since being acquired by the BBC the guide books have become ordinary and increasingly unreliable. This guidebook includes inaccurate information, but more problematic is that weblinks suggested are not "alive" and often a sight is identified and mentioned but one needs to then use another guidebook or an online resource to get the information actually needed to access the attraction or to get basic information that in earlier incarnations of Lonely Planet guides would have been provided. In addition, within the book itself there are references to other pages for more detailed information, but when one turns to that page the information is not there … one needs to leaf through the book to hopefully find the page suggested. Sadly, Lonely Planet guides were always my first choice; that isn't the case given the new standards of the publications. In this case I was glad I also had an Eyewitness Guide for Hong Kong.
