A Typical Lonely Planet ...
- January 9, 2007
This book offers everything you expect from a Lonely Planet travel guide - background infos you need to know about the country (Do's, Don'ts, how to get by in India on your own, etc.), sights, restaurant and hotel listings and much more for your trip to Rajasthan.
Like most Lonely Planets, it is a bit thin on history and culture, the description of the sights is sometimes very short.
The Delhi chapter is extensive, though.
You get everything you expect from a LP, but if you are interested in history and Indian culture and religion, buy another book to accompany this LP on your trip.
Adequate Guide book for Rajasthan, Delhi, and Agra
By Roger Berlind
- December 30, 2008
This particular version of the Lonely Planet Guide Book for Rajasthan, Delhi, and Agra (in India) is adequate. But the similar Rough Guide for the same region is better, having more detailed descriptions and being more visually appealing due to its greater use of color. For instance, the Lonely Planet book has less than 2 pages about Akbar's capital city of Fatehpur Sikri while the Rough Guide book has 8 pages.
If You're Going you Better have a good guide- and this is the best.

If you're doing the 'typical' first time trip to India - the Golden Triangle - this is all you need - no reason to have a full guide to India since the south is completely different from the north - carrying a full guide to India if you're just going to Delhi, The Taj Mahal, and say Jaipur, is like carrying a guide to to Poland for a trip to France - I guess that's why Lonely Planet decided to publish this concise guide.
Traveling to India takes a lot of preparation and you discover you forgot to do half the preparation you needed when you get there - this book helps full the gaps, prepare you for the shocks, gives great connection information to the often confusing and chaotic, but surprisingly pretty well ran Indian railways.
It also gives you good thumbnail estimates about prices -which is essential for Western travelers as you are continuously the target of price gouging. Highly recommended.
