As a long time reader of Lonely Planet, I have the say the publication sure took a dive since the Wheelers sold their stake to BBC. Gone were the days when LP stood for quality information on budget travel. Now they are a glossy tourism magazine like any other.

I bought this book to read up on interesting events/festivals about to take place this year. Instead what I got is a list of random ideas like where to get a tattoo.

One event I fully expect to be covered in this book is the Kumbh Mela. It is the largest human gathering on the planet. A once in 12 years religious festival that celebrate the Hindu cosmic creation. Pilgrams and holy man flock to the banks of the Ganges at Allahbad during the month of February to understand ritual bathing. I read thought this book expecting a page dedicate to this event with possible insights to help me take the trip. But after reading the last page, I did not find anything remotely related. Looks through the index and glossary, did not find anything either. Looks through every page involving India did not find it. The closest thing I found is a multiple page coverage on Hyderabad. For those who do not know, Hyderbad is an industrial city in the middle of nowhere. I do not know what the editorial policy at LP is, but surly for those who wish to go through all the hassle of travelling to India, the Kumbh Mela festal is more preferable to an industrial city in the middle of nowhere.

A great travel resource...I can understand why people rarely get rid of their Lonely Planet's...excellent idea's for my travel 'wish' list. Packed full of tidbits of information. e.g. a nice cold beer in Madagascar cost 0.92cents or the population of Hobert Australia is only 214,00 , but a cup of coffee is going to set you back $3.60. This book is an easy, fun read. Keeping it in my permeant library. Highly recommend for any traveler!

First of all, I love Lonely Planet travel books and always have one with me on my trips. This book was disappointing. It is okay and has some great pictures as well as a small dialogue about each location. I just expected more for the price.

The content is uneven and unremarkable but since I've purchased the e-version, it is annoyingly unreadable. It works differently from other ebooks. Each paragraph pops up at you separstely and this is unpleassnt to say the least. Instead of looking at the whole page one only sees a paragrsph at a time.
