Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Rough Guides feature some of the best writing of all the travel series, with extensive essays on history, arts, and culture included in each guidebook. These hip, lively guides also offer great coverage of nightlife and recreation but never neglect the all-important basics -- hotels, transportation, shopping, and more. The Rough Guides series covers the major destinations, as well as the less traveled spots, and are favorites among backpackers who appreciate the inclusion of budget options among the hotel and restaurant listings. The Rough Guides are reliable and accurate, and so well-written that they can provide hours of enjoyable reading -- even if you aren't planning a trip.
