We wished now that we had know about Bradt guides before we left… Bradt guides are much better than Lonely Planets and have way more information. The only down side is they don’t have all countries… but if you are going to a country where they have a Bradt guide, buy it. You won’t regret it!
It looks like our Lonely Planet collection is going to grow even bigger. We have decided we will buy at least the LP’s for the first ‘half’ of the trip and carry them with us. Jon has made a list and come up with the following LP’s to buy:
- Central Asia
- Myanmar – hopefully we can arrange a visit!
We have decided not to buy a new China guide as the actual attractions won’t have changed and we won’t be traveling by train or bus nor do we need accommodation whilst we are there. We’ll take Jon’s old guide.
We haven’t decided yet on the LP’s to buy for the Stan section of the trip, so this list will be updated!!
