2.0 out of 5 stars Rich kid travel rag April 3, 2013
By Zilamac
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Passionate about travel - I find this newer magazine irritating. To me it says more about its target market (affluent) than it does about an enriching cultural expansive window on the experience of travel (international or national). The all too apparent leading edge from tips on high end places to stay, eat, etc. along with ads for those with a big budget, evokes the realm of the privledged traveler, no mater the "featured" destination.
A seasoned traveler, the AFAR subscription was given to me as a gift and I will not bother to renew it. I want to feel enriched after reading about a subject I love, not annoyed.

AFAR is a vanity magazine produced by a small group of self-styled "travel hipsters" who write far more to impress one another than to inform a broader readership. "And then I found myself in a hip suburb of Athens, where I found myself hanging out with some totally happening Marxist students and we baked souvlaki together. Ain't I the s***!" That's a (very slight) exaggeration, but it captures the tone. This magazine showed up unannounced in my mailbox one day and has been coming ever since. Now, I spend about three minutes thumbing through it before it gets tossed into the garbage.
This is a magazine for travel-hipster wannabes who live in the provinces, i.e., not New York or L.A., who can put this on their coffee table and say, "Hey look Meadow, I read AFAR. I must be happening!"
Two stars for stellar production values, zero for content.

Sometimes you want to just sit on your couch and feel connected to interesting people who love traveling as much as you do. This is what AFAR magazine gives you! Most travel magazines have disappointed me because they are just a lot of ads and stock photos. But this magazine introduces you to people who travel often and you get a glimpse into their lives and where they've been. For example, the highlights for me in the latest issue: a short essay by an editor about how as a child his family of six kids did summer road trips all around the country and how it was his mom's curiosity that drove the trips despite his dad's reluctance, an article about a yacht racer and how alive he feels when seeing cities at night from the water and a list of his favorite ports, and an article by a cultural educator in Waimea Valley, Oahu explaining how he grew up in Hawaii going to Kamehameha School (elite school for native Hawaiians) and what Hawaii and the North Shore culture mean to him. You feel really inspired to go out and see the world after reading this magazine.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Fate Worse than Death April 9, 2015
Subscription Term Name:1 year
AFAR started out very promising and refreshing and it has now over the years has grown up and matured into an ugly more slutty step sister of Conde Nast. After correspondence with the founder Greg Sullivan about my disappointment in the way the magazine has gone into the elitist realm of travel journalism and basically caused any reader an ad induced overdose. he insists its better than ever..if better he means more advertising money...im sure its great Greg. There are no interesting stories or travel insight only short blurbs about the best espresso and what 5 star hotels have the best bars. The absence of maps, creative graphics, real life personal insight into travel have moved this onto the pile of pretentious and unreadable publications once more. GO BUY the SMITH JOURNAL (out of Australia) one of the only publications that is true to itself and not an over made up whore for the travel elitists.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT AS ADVERTISED December 17, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I had heard or read that this would be a magazine for those who wanted to explore cultures, not resorts. Sadly, it is more of the same: Terribly inadequate text for a world that may, unfortunately, no longer have the patience to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars WORST MAGAZINE EVER December 16, 2014
Subscription Term Name:1 year
WORST MAGAZINE EVER ! In the cover story, " 32 Must Visit Destinations"- they briefly list their choice for the # 1 and #2 destination. Which consists of three sentences, maximum. To see # 3- 7, # 14 - 16 , # 22 - 29 on their list you must GO ON THEIR WEBSITE ! ??? I guess they could not afford to take up too much space in the actual magazine for any content.They clearly needed room for the advertisements. Of the first 36 pages of the magazine, 23 are ads (the entire magazine is only about 100 pages long). Almost impossible to distinguish which pages are actually "articles" - and I use the term very loosely.
