Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0864424663, Paperback)From Antarctica to Zimbabwe, if you're going there, chances are Lonely Planet has been there first. With a pithy and matter-of-fact writing style, these guides are guaranteed to calm the nerves of first-time world travelers, while still listing off-the-beaten-path finds sure to thrill even the most jaded globetrotters. Lonely Planet has been perfecting its guidebooks for nearly 30 years and as a result, has the experience and know-how similar to an older sibling's "been there" advice. The original backpacker's bible, the LP series has recently widened its reach. While still giving insights for the low-budget traveler, the books now list a wide range of accommodations and itineraries for those with less time than money.
If you're off to the Philippines, pack along this handy guide to help you plan the journey that's right for you. The Lonely Planet's Philippines offers 143 maps, a special guide to inter-island travel, listings of places to stay (ranging from huts to suites that include butler service), a useful language section, practical details on outdoor activities, plus interesting background on flora, fauna, and culture, A special health section covers predeparture preparations as well as potential medical problems and treatment on the road. --Kathryn True
