    Okay

    This guidebook was a bit superficial and did not cover all of the remote areas of the country that we visited. I suspect it's aimed at people on package tours who just want a supplement to their trip but do not need all of the do's and don'ts of getting around and finding your own places to stay and things to do. However the descriptions of individual sights were good.
