The book is organized by continent, however the sequence of cities within those chapters is somewhat random. Each city, no matter how vast and appealing, gets 2 or 3 pages max, and those pages are about 60% photos and 40% text. The page layout is beautiful, and as you would expect from any National Geographic publication, filled with stunning photography.
It's difficult to know who the target audience is for this book. If you are travelling to someplace you've never visited, you will certainly pick up a detailed travel guide, because the brief mention of your destination in this book aren't going to warrant the expenditure. It might be interesting to read the section on places you've already been to see if you visited the recommended places. It seems that the National Geographic travel editors found themselves with a nice collection of interesting cultural images from around the world and decided to put them all together into one book.
It seems the best use for the book is to flip through the pages and enjoy the photography and dream of places you might go some day. "Where the Locals Go" will find a place in my pile of travel and travel-photography books, to be picked up from time to time when I'm fantasizing about my future travel plans...
