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 outside of the Americas, this series is named "Best Of" instead of "Discover".

  • 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
