i found it quite humerous that i read the following extract while laying beside a pool in a cambodian resort--------cambodia is awash with pirated books and poor photocopies, including lonely planet titles. we know you wouldnt dream of buying a photocopied lonelt planet guide,be warned, if this is a photocopy, it may self-destruct in five seconds. i found that funny because i was reading at the time a photocopyed version of it. now dont judge me its not like i dont like supporting business. i wa...
Really good, interesting and Informative, a great insight.
found this handy when i went backpacking to south east asia. start-off from singapore then took the train to malaysia then another train headed to cambodia, laos, vietnam summing up your last stop at thailand. though, lonely planet hasn't really been updated recently, still a bestfriend when you're off the road.
Not sure what all the hype is with Lonely Planet guides...? Blah at best. There are much better guides out there :) *also, I had the paperback version, not ebook*
If you're going with or without a tour guide, it is worth it to read about Angkor Wat and what exactly does the bas reliefs mean.
Love Lonely Planet books. They are the most intuitive travel books out there.
Lonely Planet and the Rough Guide are dull and boring while you're planning a trip, but on the go they are invaluable. I had this and two other ebooks borrowed from my library during my trip. So lightweight, easy to search and bookmark and most importantly available offline.It was a bit difficult to find a suitable app. Pocketbook was able to handle DRM and the links in the book, where others failed. Zooming the maps did not work, but they were offered as download as well.

Useful if you traveling to Cambodia!
One of the better Lonely Planet guides, we devoured this one and wrung every bit of information from it.
Highly recommended. Detailed descriptions of what to see and visit, when to see it and how to get there and where to stay. Gives detailed and important historical and cultural information, need-to-know and interesting facts. a Traveller's dream guide
Lots of useful information (specifically maps!), but a little out-of-date. In LP's defense, it's a bit hard to stay up-to-date in a country like Cambodia, where everything is changing so fast. (Hopefully for Cambodia's sake, it'll keep changing for the better). As always, it's meant to be a guide, not an end-all-be-all-source-of-everything-worthwhile, so remember to use it as such and it'll be helpful along your travels, if not definitive.Also I'd say that LP in general would do well to stop rev...
Very informative book and covers all the bases that one needs to know about Cambodia.
looking at my old pictures folder, and i found this book captured with my Cambodian fried rice... feels like going back to the street of Siem reap. How I miss that journey. anyway, read this borrowed book (it's belong to my trip mate, and it's a copy book cost only 3 dollars) and it really gives a lot of useful information and tips
Big up to my mom for sending this (and three other Lonely Planet Guidebooks!) to me when I was living in China! I loved the suggestions in Cambodia, but my travel buddy and I managed to get into trouble... I mean "adventures" all on our own! VERY helpful through the Wats of Ankor.
I bought this while I was touring the ruins in Angkor Wat. I had thought I was getting such a good deal (brand new - only $5!) but when I got back to the hotel and started reading it I realized it was photocopied. Oh well, it was still in good condition and will be useful...
Very handle and useful, even for a Cambodian like I myself :)
My first Solo trip and this book was priceless there for me.I love Cambodia and will be going back to this amazing place.
Some very helpful info. I read it multiple times.
I want to go to Cambodia!
Siem Reap was incredible! I can't wait to go back to Cambodia. It is truly a beautiful and amazing place!
This book had really good suggestions. Also totally worth it for when you visit Siem Rep and all the Wats. It gives a good overview of the histories of most structures in Angkor.
yak...sudah ngasah clurit... siap backpacking ke Kamboja!!!! bawa termos kopi buat ngopi2 di Angkor Wat

It's lonely planet.
These books are more or less indispensable for getting around the world.
The guidebook, thanks to the Internet, is dying a quick death. We went to Cambodia when my wife was two months pregnant.
