    Best Issan Travel Book

    Planning on spending a few weeks backpacking around Issan, the one part I've never really been. I want to take a travel book with me, for maps, guest house locations and sights. Should I buy Lonely Planet Thailand for the Issan section of can someone suggest something better.

    Thanks

    Probably not better, but an alternative, is the Footprint Guide to Thailand. Myself I prefer the Footprint books to the Lonely Planet's.

    Footprint is v.good-best to heave yourself into Ottakers/Waterstones and have a browse through the contenders before purchase-good thing to do if it is cold /raining outside-especially an Ottaker with coffee shop!

    I went around Lao on a Footprint donkey's years ago when they had the plain hardback cover, by far the best travel guide I've seen. It was at the time I got out of using travel books though, so never bought any more. I only just got back into them in the last couple of years. LP I always found pretty poor but it often won out because it had the best maps, they seem to have done away with good map nowadays.
