Bali and Lombok (Lonely Planet Country & Regional Guides)

Just visited Lombok with the brand new, just out of printers Lonely Planet guidebook and useful it was, it was also badly out of date, already. The prices weren't accurate at all (yes, I understand that things change rapidly), but it was disappointing and sometimes frustrating to try and find restaurants that didn't exist or were closed and realise that often the accommodation/taxi etc. prices were double (in May at the beginning of the season) from what was quoted as "high season rate" and a lot of haggling was needed to get any discounts. Never the less, it is useful book and as always, if you are used to LP format it's easy to find what you're looking for, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend..

5/5 stars

Essential Book (21/21 people found this helpful)

Took this book on our Honeymoon to Bali in September. Absolutely essential tool for finding the huge number of hidden treasures. We were at Nusa Dua which was poorly covered, but bare in mind that the Lonely books are for your globe trotting surfer.
But the rest of the island was very well covered and gave some great detail on the main attractions.
The Island guide was very useful giving details of local customs and amenities.
Would make sure this is in your pocket when you go.
A few tips
1. Watch the "helpers" at the airport, they will swamp you at the conveyor and fleece you for the pleasure of carrying your bag. Just say no.
2. If you are at one of the big resorts/ hotel complexes, hire you first taxi through the hotel. Then get talking to the driver who will happily pick you up outside the gates for 1/3 of the price. Full day tour was £20. Not bad for 14 hours out and about.
3. The guide will take you to places where he gets a cut, but they are still cheap places to go and you would never find them normally.
4. Get to the North of the Island, rainforest, monkeys and some amazing view
5. Save your money for a trip to the Ubud "Art Market". It is not an art market but a great place to pick up absolutely everything.
6. If you ask a guide he will take you to the outskirts of Ubud where the small workshops back onto shop front. Prepare for some major bargains.
7. Haggle Haggle Haggle, then Haggle some more. Always ask for an afternoon price then the ultimate walk way price! But don't start bantering if you ain't buying.
