So I went on a long trip around SE Asia which included many countries in the area. I was thrilled when I found out that these books were on Kindle. I figured I could download the books instead of carrying a heavy book with the limited space in my pack, and I was going to need a lot of books. For starters, the Kindle books are worthless. Instead of having more information, because they don't have to use more paper, there is less information. In fact, so little that it looks like they put these books together in such a hurry just to get by so they could throw them out there. The formatting is outrageous. Even the worst Kindle books have clickable links so you don't have to scroll back and forth, back and forth, from the index. I asked Amazon for a refund and had them delete the worthless excuse for a publication.
Next, most all of the information in all the different countries' books I looked at in bookstores and from other travelers was way out of date, and these are new books. The worst problem is that there is so little information as to make these books a complete waste of owning. All the great places I stayed at, and everybody else easily found as well, are not in their books. Following Lonely Planet guides actually keeps you from finding all the best places to stay, because you are relying on out of date, poorly researched information. They will tell you things like this is the place all the backpackers go and is the best value, and it will be completely wrong. I went to one place they gave a great review in a new book, and it seemed like a filthy drug den with gangsters running it. The new owners of Lonely Planet have taken the good name of the Wheelers and their past accomplishments, and are milking it for all it's worth without putting in the work.
Here is what I suggest.

Disappointed. We are travelling in China for a month and have been using the Lonely Planet China for that trip. We are able to plan every facet of the trip with the book. Specifically - how to actually get places (the most important part of traveling if you ask me). Unfortunately for the second month of travel in SEA, this is not possible with the LP VCLNT copy we received just before we left home (too bad we left the old version at home expecting the updated version to be more useful). The book has good information about places to stay and eating (as well as tips like "be nice to locals" or "don't hurt the environment") but not as much information about how to get from point A to point B. So far I am constantly online trying to deduce the best route from Bangkok to Siem Reap to HCMC to Hanoi etc. In the China one it lays out on point transportation options for the common next destinations. This book does not do a very good job of laying out transport options between these countries - surprising as they encourage you to travel through each in the Plan Your Trip Section. Basically it says to fly. Where is the adventure in that?
Finally, I also don't understand the need to put reviews of five star hotels in these books. How difficult would it be to print two identical versions of the same book - one for normal travelers and one for those with no budget? Maybe take out the low end transportation tips for the latter as well. Lots of wasted print. Not their best effort.
Overall, I first used LP for a long trip through Asia 12 years ago and in my opinion the product (in this case) has devolved into too many feel good tips and high end options and not enough useful data. Get back to basics boys and girls.

Very helpful if you are looking for places to stay and to eat in major population areas.. Not so helpful regarding smaller towns or general information about the things to see and do.

I really enjoy the Lonely Planet series. When I travel, I razor out the pages for that city or area, staple them together, put them into a ziplock plastic bag and slip them into my capacious cargo pants pockets. I can review the pages wherever I go that day, without carrying the whole book around. When I leave the area, I slip the pages back into the binding. In the end, I have the whole book, with all my highlighting and notes in the margins, not as neat as at the first, but good enough to refer back to.

Good travel companion for those who are travelling to the SE Asia zone with little time for a deeper exploration. It states the basic information about the main destinations available, some interesting and useful history and facts and main sights for the cities. If you want something more comprehensive you should buy the dedicated guides for each country.

I always use Lonely Planet Guide Books. I downloaded this onto my mini Ipad which made it easier to carry. Lonely Planet is more detailed and more specific than Hoang Pham Guide books so I believe you need to have the brief , simplified ones as well as at least 1 or 2 of the more detailed books. As long as you download them, it won't be a problem for weight .

I tried to use this as an eBook but it wasn't easy and the maps were useless. I found that as it covered 4 countries, it doesn't provide the really rich information on any of them that you get in other Lonely Planet guides. I didn't take the hard copy on Laos I had as it was just too heavy to lug in my baggage or my day bag - why must guide books always be so heavy?
