What is a Best of Country book?

These are shorter, more concise guidebooks compared to our country guide series. More visually stimulating, they focus on the top sights and most authentic experiences. Perfect if you don’t need accommodation recommendations, they’re packed with expert knowledge, local secrets and carefully crafted itineraries, as well as the most relevant and up-to-date advice. If purchasing this title inside the Americas, this series is named "Discover" instead of "Best Of".

  • 60 full-colour maps and photos throughout
  • Highlights and itineraries to tailor your trip
  • Local travel advice for avoiding crowds and trouble spots
  • Insider tips to help you save time and money
  • Survival Guide A-Z: essential information on everything from
  • money and health to visas and emergency phone numbers
  • Recommendations on eating, sightseeing, going out, shopping and more

Please note that Best of guidebooks are only available as complete downloads, not as individual chapters, and may not be available in all file formats.
