Good Idea Generator for solo travellers
on August 7, 2009
I am always looking for ideas for new destinations and especially ones that will be comfortable for me, as I travel frequently in Asia and the Middle East. This is not a guidebook for these locations and I don't think it was intended to be. It provides some ideas that will suit you based on a quiz at the beginning of the book. I actually hate these kinds of quizzes and do not like to be pigeon holed as one type or another. But the following info on selected locations did provide good information on why to go and key things not to miss.
I think I may be ten year too old for the target audience as I am less interested in the local bar scene but there was still plenty that I found helpful and have put a couple new destinations on my list as a result - which is what I wanted. It even provided some ideas for places I go frequently but never knew some of thier more interesting parts of points of interest.
I would not use this to find hotel recommendations once you pick a spot you will need additional materials and do searches to complete your itinerary. But this is a good dream book and jumping off point.
Safe and happy travels
