A bit old but Lonely Planet quality. Histories, good maps, photographs. Even if you can't make the tirp right now a good place for some vicarious traveling. ( )

I didn't find the suggestions in this Lonely Planet useful, nor I found it a valuable source of ideas on where to go. Everything mentioned in the guide is almost a must see, when if fact it might not be worth the bus journey so I didn't find this guide useful for India. You'd better look elsewhere... ( )

Tremendous amount of information but not a book you can carry with you. I used this a reference prior to the trip and took Fodors with me. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0864426879, Paperback)

Firmly ensconced in the budget travel canon, Lonely Planet: India has become as essential to subcontinental backpacker culture as the Himalayan hill stations, Arabian Sea beaches, and crafty rickshaw drivers it describes. Beyond the frank, thorough coverage of the country's highlights and pitfalls, indispensable maps and a snazzy full-color guide to India's religions make this sturdy tome an endlessly useful one-stop reference. Though the emphasis is on "budget" travel, there are hotel and restaurant picks to accommodate you whether your budget is $10 or $500 a day. The book's only problem is that to some degree, it's a victim of its own success--it can be difficult to get off the beaten path when every English-speaking backpacker in South Asia is carrying the same guide. Fortunately, given India's (and the book's) seemingly endless charms, there's still enough to go around. --Andrew Nieland
