There are people who swear by guide books and the value of their usage. Where in part I agree with the value of them in so much as things to see and do, most of the time you will find that a lot of things are out of date by the time the guide book is published. This mainly applies to hotels, restaurants, entrance fees to local attractions and the ilk. It’s a fact of life that hotel prices rise and restaurants shut and new ones open up.
The traveller’s bible is without a doubt Lonely Planet and so often you see travellers lugging these tomes around the streets or browsing through them at departure lounges in airports. What is interesting is Lonely Planet have just released a list of 25 things visitors to Bali and Lombok should do and see. Although it is a relatively short list there is so much more on the island.
