I have lots of guidebooks - and lots of Lonely Planets, for that matter. But despite the fact that they say they are for "independent travellers", I keep finding ridiculous reviews on restaurants and hotels, to the point where I've stopped using them.

The History, Snapshot, and similar sections are great, but if you have a brain of your own - use it. Forget their restaurant and hotel recommendations, as I'm not even sure they visit the places. Sometimes they have history or comments on places that is worthwhile to read, though. All tourbooks may have these drawbacks, to be fair.

Finally, I think I'm going to stop buying Lonely Planet's, though. First, they always act like driving is so scary everywhere, when it's actually quite easy to anyone with a brain. They also forget to give worthwhile tips on getting a car, etc. I imagine that this is their way of "saving the Earth". To a person who does care about the Earth, but doesn't believe that being a dirty hippie is going to save anything, this - and all their other BS trying to coerce their opinions onto you as fact - gets really freakin' old. Yes, yes, I know, LP is founded by some hippie freak from AUS or something - whooptie doo. That doesn't mean I have to pay some jerk who's going to push his politics on me, whether I agree with them or not.

The book is good in giving you info on what to see and how to get around. A lot that is related to Korean culture and its people is not right or a bit off base. The info on the bus system is a bit off including prices and how it works. On the other hand, it does give plenty of info on what to see and is good on describing how you can get from place to place. Overall it gives you a lot of helpful info, but it certainly is not the "bible" on korea by any means.

Be sure to the the latest version. I got a 10 year old version. This information was not provided in the product description when buying a used guide.

I was lucky enough to live in Korea for a year teaching English and while I was there, the LP Korea was pretty much my travelling "Bible". While other people may not consider it indepth in locations to visit, it still has more than sufficient details for your average visitor who is going to travel around for a month or two. I was working so my travelling time was limited to weekends, so as it was, the LP Korea was perfectly adequate for my needs. There was always plenty to see and do. I wanted to see the most important and interesting stuff, which typifies what Korea is all about. If you are going to be visiting Korea for an extended period of time, or living there, then maybe after a while the guide book may appear to be superficial. However, all the major regions are covered, including Jejudo Island (and North Korea gets its own section at the back). All the usual hotels, resturants and transport details are there, as well as the bog standard travel advice. So if you are a short term visitor, then the LP Korea will, in my opinion, be more than sufficient.
Besides, if LP does not meet your needs, the KNTO is reasonably well developed, with tourist maps and info of most destinations at railway stations, bus stations, and airports. At major tourist points, guides will speak english, and advise you of other interesting features of the area you are in. University students wanting practice their english are also good travel guides. I had my first introduction to Daegu in this manner.
I disagree with some of the opinions expressed by other reviewers of this book. To be realistic, the minute this title came off the printing press it was out of date. For example, one cannot expect all the eateries listed to still be there by the time an individual gets to Korea. When I lived in Kumi (or Gumi, which ever way you prefer) for a year, there was a resturant down the street from where I lived that changed ownership three times, being reincarnated as something different each time it reopened. Some places stay, some go. Nor can one expect all interesting destinations to be featured; what would people want more; a small compact book with sufficient info for tourists planning to be in country for 2 months or so or alternatively an immense brick like book jammed with enough destinations to keep a traveller travelling for years and which cost a bomb and throws your back out every time you lift it. I know which I prefer.

If you are a first time visitor to Korea, this book provides an excellent overview of sights to see, places to stay, and restaurants to eat. It is great for planning your trip to Korea. When you do get to Korea, there are plenty of places to get more detailed information. That is especially true in big cities and tourist attractions. Korea is incredibly resourceful in that area.
If you are going to remote area of Korea, then this may not be the book for you; then again there probably aren't any tourist books that are detailed about all of Korea. Transportation information especially local bus routes can change quite frequently. You need to find out detail information after you get to Korea. Korean people are usually very friendly to foreigners.
One thing I do find lacking with this tour book is that it lists all tourist attractions in seemingly random order. Some that are not really worth a visit are covered in details yet some considered not to be missed by local koreans are covered in very little detail. This can be frustrating to short term visitors. But again, do go to a tourist center once you arrive in Korea. I also feel the nightlife section should be expanded. A visit to Korea without experiencing the nightlife is only 50% complete.
