As an avid explorer and travel blogger, I rarely visit a new country without my Lonely Planet Guidebook in tow. Lonely Planet Guides will give you maps, accommodation advice and restaurant comparisons. Lonely Planets will also prepare you for any cultural differences and scams operating in certain areas to be aware of.
I have used my Lonely Planet Guidebooks in both rural and Urban settings in Europe, America and Africa. When I stayed in Toronto for 5 nights, the Toronto City Guide was perfect. I also made extensive use of the USA guide when I went to the USA with BUNAC (Camp America), which saved us from camping on train station platforms a few times!

Which Lonely Planet Should I buy?
Once you have decided on your destination and how long your will stay there for, this will help you to decide which Lonely Planet Guidebook you need.
If you are going to take a city break for four or five days, the City Guide Lonely Planet will be fine for you. If you are looking at spending a couple of weeks or months in one single country, go for the country guide.
If what you have planned is a more extensive trip covering many months and several countries, you may want to go for one of the larger Multi-Country Lonely Planet Guides that covers more ground, such as South East Asia on a Shoe String or Eastern Europe.
Lonely Planet also offer some Pocket Guidebooks (e.g. London) and Phrase Books.
