In that sense the periplus was a type of log. It served the same purpose as the later Roman itinerarium of road stops; however, the Greek navigators added various notes, which if they were professional geographers (as many were) became part of their own additions to Greek geography.

Periplus's critically acclaimed Diving Indonesia, now in its fourth revision, is the pioneer guide to this fascinating, and still little-known, island chain

Periplus's critically acclaimed Diving Indonesia, now in its fourth revision, is the pioneer guide to this fascinating, and still little-known, island chain. Widely considered a classic of the genre, this guide covers sites from the shallow reefs of Bintan island just a stone's throw from Singapore to the current-swept wrecks of World War II aircraft lying off Indonesian New Guinea, and dive options ranging from easy shore dives on Bali to luxurious live-aboards in the Banda Sea.

The Periplus Adventure guides do precisely what a great travel book should do- make you want to get up and go! Periplus adventure guides show you how to get there, and then help make the absolute most out of a stay, leaving no stone, no beach, no fine restaurant or mountain trail untried. With detailed, up-to-date maps, photographs-both new and archival- personal recommendations and inside tips from expert authors, the guides go well beyond the usual travel fare and offer an extraordinary value for the money.

This fall, Periplus proudly offers nine additions to the Adventure Guide list, exploring some of the most breathtaking, historically important and lesser known regions of Indonesia and Malaysia and Singapore. These include an updated guide to the exotic volcanic island of Bali; the flora and fauna-rich rainforests of East Malaysia and Brunei; the little known islands of Nusa Tenggara that lie East of Bali from Lombok to Timor; the center of the Indonesian archipelago, Java, rich in Buddhist tradition; the primitive and wildlife-filled province of Kalimanatan: Indonesian Borneo, home to the fascinating Dyak culture; Maluku: Indonesian Spice Islands, a sun-drenched string of pearl like islands in the tropical sea of Eastern Indonesia; the truly wild, mountainous island of Sulawesi-for which this is the only guidebook available; Sumatra, home of mighty rivers, sparkling highland lakes and lush tropical rain forests; and the most comprehensive guide to West Malaysia and Singapore ever produced.

I bought the Kindle edition to take with me on a recent vacation to Bali with my wife. It's darned near useless as a travel guide of the sort most tourists want, which seems to me to be a result of a combination of the Kindle format and the disappointingly useless content.

When I travel I'm most interested in having a pocket guide that right up front tells me the primary do's and don'ts of an area, especially any health hazards (like never drinking the local water) to avoid, with tips on local language and recommendations for dining and tourist itineraries plus notes on typical tourist sights and attractions. I also appreciate some info on local culture and history.

This guide opens with a series of essays by various people. These are mostly interesting but way too focused on details of religion not at all interesting in general tourism and not efficient at all for the traveler. You have to dig into the chapters at the very back for practical advice such as never, ever drinking the water. Coverage of tourist sights and restaurants was extremely ad hoc and limited. For example, there's virtually nothing on the famous Monkey Forest, one of the must-not-miss things to do in Ubud. My wife's printed pocket guidebook to Bali was far better.

So, if you want some idiosyncratic essays on Balinese religion and culture with a hit-or-miss coverage of various regions in Bali in the form of idiosyncratic essays this is the book. Otherwise, skip it and get the Lonely Planet or other similar book.

I gave a try to the book after reading reviews. It was an excellent companion in our trip to Bali. Map and details are very convenient. You will learn all about Bali to make sure you dont miss a spot during your adventure. We had hotels the 3 first nights but last 5 nights just booking at last minute. I read book recommemdations but also check agoda website for more convenient prices. Book is excellent!!! Trip made in January 2017.

Periplus doesn't publish "places to shop" or "places to stay" or even "things to see" guidebooks. Others, particularly Lonely Planet and Rough Guides, are better bets on these topics. If, however, you want a solid, relatively short, well-written overview of the culture, history and art of Bali, you can't do much better than "Guide to Bali". Fully two-thirds of the book's 332 pages are dedicated to these topics, first in an island-wide overview and then by region and major town. The last third does a decent job covering travel practicalities, again island-wide and by region/town.

The first two-thirds is why you buy a Periplus guidebook (the last third is why you don't absolutely have to carry another guide on your trip): to have a collection of two page single topic essays that, together, gives you the background you need to decide what you want to see and where you want to go in Bali. The writing is clear, informed and, more often than not, highly opinionated in a "been there done that" sort of way. It is fun to read and in-depth enough to be helpful without being overwhelming.

What you won't find here are reviews of restaurants and hotels, thousands of stock photographs or sn overly optimistic (or pessimistic) view of Bali and its people. Rightly enough, you may get the sense that the editors are not overly fond of tourists that demand Ubud be an "indigenous" version of London or Los Angeles. This is also not a guidebook for people that tend toward guided tours and cloistered hotels, though it is certainly not "Bali On Five Dollars a Day".

If I re-read just two guides on Bali before my next trip, this will be one of them. I highly recommend it for the travelers that like to know just enough to strike out and explore on their own.

I originally bought the Kindle version but soon discovered that most of the maps are unreadable in the digital version of the book (whether in a handheld device or even a 27" monitor).
So I returned the Kindle version and ordered the paper version instead.

From what I've read in the book so far, this is very informative and useful and I am looking forward to diving into it.
Will update this review when I have don that.

This is a good cut above the standard set by the usual travel guides. I use a lot of them, including Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, and the DK Eyewitness guides. The Periplus surpasses them all, though I have to add that I have not yet read these others for Bali. I will read at least one of them soon and will not fail to complete this comparison. As for Periplus, though it was published in 2005, the value is in the commentaries on Balinese history and culture, which will not have changed much. Chapters devoted to each aspect of these topics comprise the first quarter of the book, then followed by chapters devoted to the different regions of the island. Chapters are short and easily digestible; writing is very good and clear. Discussion of points of interest are also very well done. All parts of the book contain beautiful photos which, as a photographer, I appreciate very much. The maps are also good and sufficiently detailed. Since my own lodging is already arranged I did not pay any attention to the recommendations on accommodation and restaurants in the back of the book, and a traveler would want to consult more up-to-date info on these topics. But as an introduction to Balinese history, culture, and points of interest, Periplus does a superb job.

I read this guide along with The rough guide to Bali and Lombok, from Rough Guides and the Periplus guide is quite good. It has a lot of history of the places that will get you in a different mood when you visit them. The places to stay and eat are pretty much resolved with phone apps and a local mobile plan (in Bali is cheap and easy to get a prepaid SIM card) but the guide will save you time in your quest. After visiting Bali, this guide covers 90% of the stuff you can do. The other 10% will always remain to other travelers and locals knowledge. Good buy.
