Earlier this week, Travel Post News reported that sales of postcards have plummeted as a result of people favouring issuing holiday updates through social networking sites. And today we bring you further sad news: the popularity of the internet could threaten the future of the travel guide book.
All travel guide books are not created equal! Ever get your hands on a shiny new guide book to find out that it might be more tailored to singles when you’re traveling with your family?
Who, what, where, when, and how. That’s what you’ll get from a Frommer’s travel guidebook. Whether its your first time away, or your first time in a new city, these thick volumes tell you quite literally everything you need to know about wherever you’re going. The basic facts and history sections are simple additions that aren’t exactly necessary, but so helpful when getting acclimated to a new spot; just one little plus that makes these guides so comprehensive!
As far as travel guidebooks go, Fodor’s is one of the top sellers. But why? Though these hearty books have all the basic info, transportation knowledge, and general keys that other books have, they follow with themed chapters of to-do listings that leave The New Yorker quivering in fear.
