A friend recently presented me with a digital version of this eBook, knowing I've read Mr. Swanepoel's work before and enjoyed them. This volume was no different. In fact, is was exactly what I expected, and more. The pictures took me to places I long to see, but will likely never visit. However, if I were to go, the guide would be an absolute necessity for traveling Laos. Each of the 20 attractions featured by Anton are unique and beautiful. He's done his homework and provided everything -- and I do mean everything -- you'll need to know about each ancient artifact and location. Costs are included, historical background, distances, GPS and on and on... He even includes a possible itinerary to make sure you see as much as possible in the time you're there. The text is well written and concise, cutting through the fluff to deliver just what a typical traveler would want.
I'd recommend this to anyone who likes to plan real adventures or for those who like to explore from their easy chair. This volume met my expectations and I can gladly recommend it to you.
