This rough guide is informative with maps and tips to travel around different countries and cities. Better to read whilst travelling than to watch a DVD beforehand! I definitely recommend to pack this book - paperback preferably, into your backpack when travelling, also to keep you company when you are waiting for the next flight, train, bus or ferry... ;)
Interesting for readers who appreciate different culture and diversity, you will gain so much insight even without travelling!!!

Great read. Entretaining and with many useful tios to be taken into consideration

I am planning a one-year round-the-world trip and found this book useful. I've already been to over 30 countries and I still learned a good couple of things from this book.

My husband and I are preparing to do some long-term international travel. I bought this book to help us prepare for the trip.

A lot of the information is very practical. I'm glad we got the book because it has started some good discussions there are some useful lists of things to bring or not bring, and see, and be careful about, and so on.

If you're on a tight budget and you're planning to pinch pennies everywhere you can, you'll like this book a little better than I did. My husband and I are not rich or anything, but we are planning to rent houses and cars in each of the cities that we visit...so the ongoing focus on saving money is sometimes interesting, but not as useful for us as it would be for some other people. Also, things that would be more interesting to us, such as topics related to everyday living--how to choose houses or cars or doctors, etc, are totally absent. When I read the part about not bringing jeans because they're too heavy, my husband actually laughed. We're not going to be living out of backpacks, and he wouldn't even consider leaving jeans behind.

I can't honestly say we're really doing anything different because of this book, at least so far. The information about places is general enough to be interesting, but not specific enough to eliminate the need for other research.

So, overall, a fun book for getting excited about travel, with a whole lot of information that may or may not be very useful to you, depending on what you're looking for. Even though we didn't feel like this was written for us, we have enjoyed reading it together, and I will continue to look back to it for ideas as we continue to prepare. I haven't decided whether it will come along with us.

Full of useful information about all sorts of things, from how to stay safe to what festivals to attend. A great buy for the aspiring globetrotter.
