I will be taking a personal challenge and travelling for the first time overland in SE Asia including Thailand/Laos/Malaysia and Indonesia, and was keen to find out what resources people recommend for timetables, maps, any advice to avoiding known public transport destination scams (beyond common sense ).
Is the SE Asia Lonely planet good enough? or are there more specific resources recommended? I will be travelling with a tablet, but keen not to take it out on the road....but maybe for this matter, i should therefore buy a physical book
any comments would be gratefully appreciated
