What’s New with DK Eyewitness Travel Guides | @DK_Travel

International travel to an unknown country or city can be scary, but with proper research and preparation, it can be one of the most enjoyable experiences that could last a lifetime. We can’t all afford vacation packages or tour guides. Thank goodness we have the power of the internet to look up itineraries, maps, attractions, dining, reviews, and travel tips as a general guide. It could take hours, days, weeks, or even months of research to map out our trip, but who needs all that paperwork when you travel? We recommend investing in at least one travel guide book or vacation planner such as a DK Eyewitness Travel Guide so you have everything at your fingertips. When we went to Paris in 2011, a printed itinerary, a vacation planning guide book, translator, and traveling apps helped us navigate the city as well as learning the Metro.

New DK Eyewitness Travel Guides 2015

Here are more reasons why a guide book:

  • you don’t need WiFi,
  • less print outs,
  • sample itineraries (make a great starting point for research by the way),
  • attractions have been highlighted with addresses, operating hours, and phone numbers,
  • they include a brief history for major attractions (this was important to me because it helped me understand and appreciate what I was looking at),
  • travel tips from experts,
  • attractions are seperated by regions,
  • dining guide, and
  • detailed maps.
How beautiful is this spread in DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: London? Not only does it briefly explain popular points of interests, it has beautiful photos in case you need a visual, and page numbers for more information. We want to also point out that travel guides are designed for easy reference. You don’t need to read the entire book to find what you’re looking for.
