Lonely Planet Korea was our "Bible" while living in Korea on my husband's one year tour with the . Without the book, I do not think we would have been able to venture out and see the countryside. The book explained so many things that we would have never known had we not had it to reference to.

Lonely Planet is a large travel guide book publisher. As of 2011, the company had sold 120 million books since inception. Lonely Planet was founded by married couple Maureen and Tony Wheeler. The company name originates from the misheard "lovely planet" in a song written by Matthew Moore

I love lonely planet guides and I've used them in Malaysia, China, Tokyo, and Istanbul.

Using this book on an ipad kindle reader absolutely sucks.

The maps are separated from the text, the links don't work, and.... it just totally sucks. In part, this may be due to kindle formatting, which is just not ready for prime-time. IT's a shame, here we have an ultra-portable electronic device, which would lend itself to hyperlinks, drill-down style menus, etc. But it only really functions as a beginning-to-end reading experience, which is COMPLETELY USELESS for a travel guide.

You need to flip pages to find the city you are currently in, find a neighborhood, look at a map, and cross reference that with text: where to eat, visit, sleep, etc, etc.

It's impossible on the electronic version. This is like web 0.5 or something.

The maps are so low resolution that you can't see anything on them. Additionally, each map is cut up into four sections, to get a higher crappy resolution (that I still can't read or zoom-in on). So... say you're looking at a map, and you get to the end of the section: scroll over to see where it goes, like what you expect in 2012? No, no, no, my friend. You must turn to another page, or two, try to find your bearings on this pixelated mess, etc.

I'd so much rather use a huge, unruly AAA map that never quite folds flat once it's been opened. I'd rather use a Rand, library-size atlas... anything but this!

I'm simply not using it at all and REALLY question this company's decision to publish to a format which makes their product so completely unusable for it's existential purpose.

I've purchased Lonely Planet travel guides for many of the places I went on vacation. Korea was my first, and my longest. I lived and worked in Korea for 2 and a half years, and this guide was helpful on numerous occasions throughout that time.

At first, of course, I used it for the maps and descriptions for just getting around. Then I was able to check out some of the hot spots and nicer hotels in Seoul before really being able to understand Korean.

Even after a year and a half in the country, I used it to help find some other interesting places to go when I had friends visiting from the US. By the way, this book will be twice as expensive in Korea if you can even find a place to buy it there(Kyobo Bookstore in Gangname).

Very useful for any amount of time you plan to spend in the country.

I downloaded this guidebook as a planning tool but, you can not navigate around the book easily enough to plan a trip and I can't imagine myself using it as my reference while traveling. You really need to be able to access a detailed index in a guide book to make it work. You also need to be able to comprehend your districts or zones in the country to be able to find things quickly but, every zone in the Table of Contents is labeled with a Korean name instead of a general description like "northeast" or "central mountains" which the beginner needs when trying to figure their itinerary out. Maps cannot be quickly referenced either. Most of these difficulties are likely common to all e-reader guidebooks. For now I suggest sticking with a printed version, at least for this one.

I went to Korea for two weeks during the dead of winter when it's very cold and you don't want to be standing around outside trying to figure out your next move. This Lonely Planet guide was so well written and organized that my trip really went off without a hitch. No problems at all, and the book gave amazing advice on everything.

I just spent a week in Seoul and I used this book along with the Moon handbook. I didn't purchase any of the Seoul focused books because they hadn't been updated recently. While some aspects of this book were good there were a few drawbacks. The good parts -- there were two good walks which allowed you to see parts of Seoul, the average tourist may not. The only non-Koreans we passed on these walks had the same guide book.

The downside is that much of the information was not current. Prices have changed for sights, for base taxi fare, etc., etc. Also, this book did not focus on the very clean, quick, and useful subway system.

While it was better overaall than the Moon book (less encyclopedic) -- I'd still rely on the KNTO, local websites, and a good concierge.

A wonderful book that really enriched my experience in Korea. Even though it's a bit old, it still gives a lot of good information. The Lonely Planet series is great and can help you find places that might not be mentioned on the internet.

For an overview on Korea, it's a good travel pointer for getting around and deciding what to see. Korea is no France or Italy when it comes to great places to visit, but it is a lovely country and you can drive or train just about everywhere.
This book was great for navigating around, but failed miserably when listing detailed information about particular destinations. I had to resort greatly to my own savvy and smart phone. Thank god for free wifi...
