Best Guide Books for SE Asia?

Jump to last reply

I need to get my guide books in preparation for my backpacking trip to SE Asia. Any reccomendations for books that are most relevant, up to date, and accurate? I am focussing mostly on Lonely Planet and Rough Guides. Any recomendations for the following countries:

Vietnam
Cambodia
Thailand
Maylasia
SE Asia (in general)

Also, this is my first time to go backpacking, and my trip will be about 6 weeks. Do you reccomend that I have a book for each country or just one general book for all of SE Asia so that I have less to lug around? Thank you!
