Asia Guidebooks

Guide books covering multiple countries can often be either too thick to carry, or too scant on details to be useful. However, a good "compendium" guide can be a very good planning tool for a multi-country trip. Listed below are the major guides for covering all or most of Southeast Asia, as well as a few specialty guides.

Guidebook Series

Which guidebook series is the best? The big names like Lonely Planet and Rough Guides are fairly good, but most of the recent editions are a bit too fat to conveniently carry around with you. They're big because they cover much more of a destination than anyone can possibly see on a typical two to four week vacation. For first time visitors, we'd highly recommend something from the DK Eyewitness travel guide series. These slim guides are highly illustrated, so you can decide what interests you, yet they still cover more than you're likely to fit into a single trip.
