travel guides2

Guides are an indispensable guide to travel, particularly for the more far-flung places. Useful for recommendations on transport, local customs and places to stay. Many sites also have forums to quiz fellow travellers for up-to-date info. Ideal for the independent and weekend traveller alike. Of course most sites now offer travel apps for use with your latest gizmo. But often there's nothing better than having a hardcopy in your hands (especially if you're keen to blend in with the crowd in Bogota!).

Fodors - Series of guide books for more ’comfortable’ travellers.

Frommers - More guide books, online forums and listings of almost 200 global cities and candid personal articles from the modern Mr Fogg, alias Arthur Frommer himself.

Holiday Net - Covers many holiday destinations and also features video clips.

Lonely Planet - Is there anywhere left in the world that you can go to be lonely?  Probably the best and most popular global guide. Very useful forum to find out the best places to visit in outer Mongolia.

Rough Guides - To smooth your travels. American orientated, but a useable alternative to Lonely Planet.
