    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.

    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.

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars not just for the wealthy May 23, 2015
    By 2ruse
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    really surprised at the negative reviews saying this magazine is only for rich people - for better or worse, i'm not in that demographic, but I love this publication - I find their stories capture the essence of travelling and unlike some other travel mags, do not assume the reader wants to spend tons of money on hotels etc., or consistently write glowing reviews so their writers can continue to get treated as elites - I've been a subscriber since the beginning, and have given gift subscriptions to friends who also love it - one of my favorite features is a photo display of everyday items (e.g. packages of gum) from all over the world

    1.0 out of 5 stars Too many advertisements and not enough substance February 18, 2016
    By JHM
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    On a crazy whim, I took a chance and purchased a subscription to AFAR, rather than the typical T+L or Conde Nast style travel mags, hoping that it might offer a fresh, more meaty take on adventure and unusual destinations, particularly for those of us that don't need a five-star hotel or resort around which to plan a trip. I received my first issue (March/April) tonight and I found that the bulk of it contains advertisements or those quasi-editorial style ads in disguise. Many of the "stories" that are promised on the cover, in the ToC and editor's note amount to a page or two of artfully placed pages amidst scads of said advertisements. As a result the flow is awkward and disappointing and content is sorely lacking... 3/4 of the way through and I still haven't found the highlighted cover articles. I hope to find a bit more substance in the next 12 months...but based on other reviews here I suspect that won't be the case.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for learning about the world... April 26, 2014
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    I bought this as a gift subscription to inspire my mother to travel (I travel a lot, be she rarely does). She hasn't booked any trips yet, but she always suggests places I should try based on the latest issue of Afar. It's nice to see her taking an interest in the world outside of her community! Now, if only she'd actually go to one of these places!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the paper that it is printed on. April 7, 2015
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    This is one of the worst publications I have ever read. 50% of the magazine has advertisements. I got mine as a free gift. It is not worth the paper it is written on. The pictures are nice. The grammar is fair, but not professional. One of the companies that I travel with sends it out.

    If you are a budget traveler, you won't be able to afford some of these trips.
