It is more comprehensive than competition guides, covering destinations off the usual tourist route. There is information and recommendations spanning all Goa has to offer – lazing on the beach, and adventure off the beaten track. There are 32 more pages than last edition, includes expanded coverage of Mumbai.

A Review of Goa : Lonely Planet Regional Guides

Much of the information is recycled from the mother book Lonely Planet India. Some facts are in fact wrong, one such example is the location of Anjuna motorbike repairs. It is strange in its omissions such as the Orange Boom Cafe in Anjuna has been there for many years but is still missed out of the book. The health section will scare you to death, and it is best to remind yourself that you will have little chance of catching most things. The stories of police raids, rapes and other horrors are best glossed over if you want to stay sane. The book is very good for two week holidays for whistle-stop-tours but a little less useful for long to very long term stays. In the case of the latter more information would be required, such as the Lonely Planet Asia & India Health book. However it is a book well worth taking along and gives a good overview of what to expect, what to go and see, and where to stay and eat. Review by “static1635” Amazon.
