Lonely Planet Road Atlas - SE Asia
The Lonely Planet Road Atlas for SE Asia (1:1 000 000, ISBN 1-86450-102-2) is not entirely accurate for Laos. Especially when it comes to road numbering.
Despite the shortcomings of this publication mentioned in the Thailand information pages, as there are not many roads in Laos, this publication is still acceptable for this country.
Additionly, as most villagers in Laos will not be able to read, having place names in dual language, suitable for pointing out to locals is not really an advantage.
For Laos, as there are no better alternatives available, this altas is sufficient.
