Lonely Planet Kuala Lumpur Melaka & Penang (Regional Travel Guide)

Customer Reviews:

Not user-friendly on Kindle

By hahajokesonme - November 8, 2012

Of course the Lonely Planet is the bible for south-east Asia, but reading it on Kindle is a nightmare. I hope others are different, but I basically found it useless given the maps are unreadable (full map is tiny and reading a map in eight different segments is not helpful). Flicking back and forth on the basic Kindle wastes a ton of time. So save yourself the trouble and buy the real book! I had to. It was driving me nuts.

useable if a bit limited

Does the trick for basic planning and site seeing. The maps and directions are weak for anything outside the strict city centers of Melaka and Penang even though the book makes several references to sites outside those areas. There should be some more information there. The book fortunately provides some basic bus info for Penang, but should go a step further in supporting the main routes with some simple maps, as the local authority doesn't get the job done in that department. Bottom line is that you should find a way to purchase more detailed maps with broader scope for Penang especially and mark it up with bus and other info before departing.

Lonely Planet - prepare to flip pages

By Aaron Minnick - November 18, 2011

I much prefer Fodor's or Frommer's guides, but couldn't find them for KL. This book is unfortunately not organized well by neighborhood. That means you need to look at where you are on a master map, find the neighborhood map, look for listings, then flip to the overall "Restaurants" listing to find the one that is close to you (for instance). Also, the attractions are not organized alphabetically so it's a hunting expedition every time you look for one. Keep a supply of post-it flags handy so you can easily find those 3 locations in the book.
