The latest LP Cambodia

The newest book on Cambodia from Hanuman’s very own product team.

The latest Lonely Planet Cambodia guidebook is due out next month though we already have a pristine copy in the Hanuman office. In fact our copy is still warm from the printing press. The reason being is that our own Nick Ray is the coordinating author, so he gets first dibs. The Cambodia edition comes out every two years, so this one has the most up-to-date information on hotels, restaurants, bars, borders and transport that you can lay your hands on. It’s a new-look book as Lonely Planet have changed their design template, with a lot more colour throughout, new sections such as If You Like and Regions At A Glance, as well as the old favourites like Top 10 Experiences and their extensive coverage of Angkor. The size and shape of the book remain the same, there are sixteen pages less this time around and an increase of a dollar in price to US$23.99. Nevertheless, it beats all its competitors hands-down for ease of reference and coverage of the whole country, including a new six-page feature on the islands off the south coast. Nick and Greg Bloom are the two writers responsible for the latest edition of what is by a country mile, the most popular guidebook on Cambodia.

Don’t forget to get a copy of To Cambodia With Love, published by ThingsAsian Press and compiled and edited by Hanuman’s very own Andy Brouwer. This labour of love was launched in January 2011. From wilderness hikes in the Cardamom Mountains to scenic picnics overlooking Angkor Wat, discover the secrets of savvy expatriates, seasoned travelers, and inspired locals. With its unique insights into dining, shopping, sightseeing, and culture, To Cambodia With Love is a one-of-a-kind guide for the passionate traveler. When it comes to Cambodia, no one knows it better than the sixty contributors to To Cambodia With Love, personally selected by Andy. Sharing more than 120 personal stories in their own words, they will introduce you to some of the country‚Äôs most memorable experiences. Like the Lonely Planet Cambodia guidebook, To Cambodia With Love is available from bookstores and online. We would recommend both, but of course we are biased.
