For a tiny island in the world's largest archipelago, Bali is blessed with astonishing diversity, with ancient temples, hedonistic beach parties, world-class surfing and isolated villages that continue to maintain artistic traditions and ancient customs. Explore Bali is a brand new guide and the ideal pocket companion when discovering the island: a full-colour guide containing 12 easy-to-follow routes, taking in Bali's cultural hub of Ubud and the Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) to the white-sand, crystal-clear waters of Nusa Lembongan and colourful temple festivals.
Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Balinese cuisine, traditional crafts, entertainment ranging from the Negara bull races to elegant temple dances, outdoor activities, and key historical dates. Each route guides you through an interesting area with clear directions, a detailed map and authentic places to eat and drink along the way. The directory section contains a wealth of practical information including a language guide and a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are also plotted on the pull-out map. Whether you are new to the region or a repeat visitor, and however long your stay, Explore Bali will help you discover the very best of this seductive, compact island.

I bought this, not knowing when I’d be going to Tokyo, but found out I would be going there sooner than I thought. Less that a year after buying this book I found myself in Tokyo for a 4 hour layover. I hadn’t bookmarked anything in this book, and had barely read it, but I had broughtit along with me so when I landed in Japan, I’d know what to do. Thanks to this book I was able to go through the very difficult task of taking all the trains into the city from Narita Airport and rushing to Shibuya, Harajuku and Shinjuku. It was stressful and confusing, but I managed it, and am so happy I did. It totally worth the effort (not to mention money). If this book can guide me in a rush through Japan, then I’m sure it can do its job wonderfully if you actually read the whole book! And the maps Insight Guide includes with numbers, matching with sites being described is so helpful. It also includes a small fold out map (not entirely helpful) with a bunch of restaurants pinpointed on it. Defiantly a necessity for all planning on going to Tokyo.more
