Way back in the day when people wanted to travel, they had to spend a lot of time and a lot of money to find a guide that could lead them through exotic countries without getting them lost, injured, or seriously ill. Or spirited away by the local tribe.
But those dark, difficult days of stumbling your way through the jungle are over! Lonely Planet are the expert guides to turn to nowadays – and everything they have to say is contained in a single book, so you can be your own leader or rugged adventurer.
And when we say “everything”, we seriously mean it! Every Lonely Planet travel guide is chock full of maps, phrase guides and places to explore. Their travel writers have spent weeks at a time on the road researching tourist favourites and local secrets, and in the process have compiled hundreds of recommendations on places to go and sights to see. Lonely Planet also know the best places to shop, eat and sleep, and encourage you to get out there and experience a country first-hand.
