We spent most of the time in Northern Thailand and the coverage for that area was extremely spotty. Yes, the guide covers the tourist magnets but when you venture just a little bit outside (and not far) there is very little information. Chiang Mai is covered well, but the way this chapter is structured makes it a major pain on a Kindle. All information is listed by geographical sections of Chiang Mai, and it was really difficult to navigate the information on the Kindle because you always only see one page. I had to endlessly scroll back and forth to see in which section I am.
Another issue was that the cities, towns and points of interest were often spelled differently in the guide than they are spelled on the official street signs or popular maps (sometimes Lonely Planet uses a completely different name, that maybe is theoretically correct but is completely useless in practice when nobody else uses that name). Therefore often it was almost impossible to even find something in the guide with the search function because Kindle obviously doesn't find anything that is spelled different even by one character.
Therefore - this is a clear "not recommend" for me. Worst Lonely Planet guide by far in the big collection of mine.
I had a trip planned, when I received this book, it all changed, a ton of locations that are not talked about and are just as good!
The size of the book fits into my hand (I have big hands) If the weight of the book, or the size of the book is the problem, maybe you should cut your trip down to a few days only. As a backpacker, this is a MUST HAVE.
