I took a good long time to finish up John Muir's Travels in Alaska (I think he'd understand — there's just too much to see in Alaska to spend a lot of time reading on the trip!) In the reading, I highlighted lots of things that I wanted to keep in mind after I'd finished reading.
I think this might have been one of my favorites of all:
"Most people who travel look only at what they are directed to look at. Great is the power of the guidebook-maker, however ignorant."
And there you have it — never trust your travel guide book 100%.
(Not even if it's Suzhou Basics.)
