So, you may choose to bring these books or not!
If you plan to bring these, you will end up bringing a very big and heavy backpack. However, if don't, you will having a problem finding a rough idea about your dream place!
If you wish to not load up your backpack, you may have these options:
1. Study well before you start your journey and jot down in your lovely note book.
2. Ensure you have an access to the internet, so you may find your way nicely!
3. If for example you are going to travel to Thailand and then to Cambodia, you may need to have a small investment where you have to buy this book (not exactly the same publisher!) for example Thailand, then once you would like to move to Cambodia, you may exchange the book in your backpackers hostel or from other traveller. So, you will have to bring only one book at a time!
