Format: Paperback
There used to be a time when there was an invisible, quasi-conspiratorial bond between LP authors and guidebook users. Both felt honour-bound to explore the world on the cheap, and LP guides were every traveller's indispensable tools to make it happen.

The 3rd edition of the East Timor guide is the ultimate victory of designer wankerdom over practicality, and (one presumes) of corporate greed over anti-establishment ideology. Not so long ago the structure of LP guides was the work of a genius in its clarity and simplicity: Facts about the country, Facts for the visitor, Getting there, Getting around, a chapter on the capital city, then descriptions of other places. Accommodation and restaurants were ranked by price: First cheap, then mid-range, finally expensive. That nowadays the author's "top choice" businesses are invariably the most expensive in town is already well-known. Now hotels and restaurants are no longer ranked by price, but are all mixed up. The practical information about a town appears illogically at the end of each chapter, and comes in smaller print than the rest of the text. What I consider the ultimate insult is that DHL has been listed under "Post", and in fact appears before the proper post office. How many travellers send their postcards by DHL? (Oh, I forgot. Nobody sends real postcards any more anyway. How silly of me.)

As for the layout, the cluttered pages look like tabloid titles. Page 103 is a particularly ugly example. The main body of text in the centre of the page, two graphs above it, an asymmetrical text column next to it (that one including a vertically typed heading), then a three-column text at the bottom. Even the description of that designer nightmare gives you eye cancer. Incidentally, the graphs in itself are insultingly stupid.

I am a Lonely Planet bigot, and I have always found these to be much more than money's worth. There needs to be some updating though to this edition. Tiger Fuel in Dili doesn't offer two wheelers for hire anymore. You can get them at Tadeo Bonito but Carlos only has a fleet of four. Nor does California Hotel present any view whatsoever of the setting sun. That view would come from Caz Bar about a kilometre or two away. Why do I give this one a rating of 4? Because just about everything else it recommends is spot on

The book is pretty basic, but a must-have when visiting the country as tourist information in and about TL is about non-existent. In that way this book is a good promotion for the country and it encouraged me and helped me to go off the beaten track and enjoy the beauty (both on land and under water) of Jaco Island and Tutuala and Com Beach and also to explore Dili city, Atoura Island and the laidback Oecussi exclave before crossing the border with Indonesia.
