Rough Guides Reviews

“I own every brand of travel guide: Frommers, Lonely Planet, Rick Steves, MTV Guide, etc. but had never tried Rough Guides until this past year when I was looking for a travel guide for Taiwan. My go to LP had bad reviews but I read that Rough Guides had a new edition come out and it was given rave reviews. So I bought it and LOVED it! These guides are full of cultural insights, great maps, good recommendations for lodging and food as well as good info about public transport.

I just bought the Southeast Asia guide for my three month trip that I'm doing currently. It hasn't steered me wrong yet. This is a fresh guide that aims to give you as much information as it possibly can. Look at this guide before any else!” – Erica, U.S.
