Having sold over 120 million guidebooks since its inception in 1972, Lonely Planet are one of the most trusted names when it comes to getting information on all things travel. The Lonely Planet website features an abundance of content that will help you plan a trip, from the best places for food and drink to booking a cheap last minute deal on a flight.

 

One of the best features for me is the Thorn Tree forum, which due to its existence since 1996 contains almost everything you need to know when planning a trip abroad thanks to the thousands of travelers constantly exchanging tips and advice. You can explore the forum by country, continent or interest, as well as searching for a travel companion, or simply having a chat to gain insightful ideas. Anyone can leave their comments under posts, while you can also sort them by ‘Recent’, ‘Highlighted’, ‘Trending’, ‘Active’, and ‘Unanswered’ to quickly find the most relevant and interesting topics for you.

 

Another great aspect of the Lonely Planet website for planning a trip is the wide selection of short videos featuring everything from the best places in Europe to get coffee to where’s best for discovering local music in Havana. Although the Lonely Planet guides contain huge amounts of information on a vast array of different countries, the option to watch a two-minute clip can be a nice break from skimming through hundreds of pages to help plan your trip.

 

The only downside that I have encountered when using the Lonely Planet website as a travel planning tool is that its information is often purposefully limited in order to tempt you into buying their guidebooks. Some pages are great and full of tours information and pricing, however others will have just one paragraph of writing before showing you a link to purchase the book. That being said, all in all it is a great place to plan your next travel adventure.

Pros
  • Thorn Tree forum contains thousands of posts from travellers
  • Wide selection of short videos to gain travel ideas
  • Information on tours, pricing, booking flights and accommodation
Cons
  • Some articles are limited in order to tempt you into buying guidebook

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go-to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels, and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe. TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer, or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥;🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to search for each item laboriously. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

What can you find on My lists, and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My listings feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value, and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the thing is offering the best of all four factors. The criteria were constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
