Lonely Planet Shanghai (Travel Guide) Reviews
My wife and I bought this book (Kindle edition) for our trip to Shanghai in Nov 2013. She read it on my Kindle Paper White, while I read it on my Kindle for iPad. Both versions were very good, but the iPad was better as it was in full color, the maps, the photos were just awesome on the iPad. I can imagine that it would look just as good on the Kindle Fire.
If you are the type of person who always carries around your iPad or Kindle, then this may be the guide for you. But not for me - without a printer on my trip, I had to write down details about addresses, etc, before leaving my hotel. But even for the entirely paperless, this format has its problems - like no index or search function in the text. So - OK content; not well formatted.
My whole family used the guide to choose things to walk to, places to eat and small trips to make. It helps us a lot.
Had 3 days vacation in Shanghai following a business trip and this book guided me to see the main sights in the city.
Amazing guide. Really helpful. Especially when it comes to planning your itinerary, understanding shanghai in general. Ah... And of course, nightlife and restaurant
Not enough information - they went too far in imitating web style information and so is grossly lacking in detail. I expect more when I pay full price for a 'book'.
While I generally favor Lonely Planet guides when traveling, it must be said that the Kindle versions are near useless as a functioning travel guide. Either LP should spend time reformatting to the kindle versions and maps etc or they shouldn't insult the ignorant public from parting with their hard earned money and buying something so worthless. Buy the paper books and AVOID ALL LP KINDLE PRODUCTS. Truly disappointing on many levels.
We used the kindle edition on our recent trip to Shangghai. It is OK but no more than that - We missed a comprehensive index that is easily accessible from anywhere in the book. We have seen many sites that are not listed in the book. So - while OK it left us desiring a better guide...
