Lonely Planet London

Lonely Planet London is a travel guidebook that functions as the perfect companion when planning a trip to England’s capital city. The book is divided into four, colour-coded sections – Plan Your Trip, Explore, Understand and Survival Guide – as well as a chapter at the end containing detailed maps of the city and the underground system.

 

As I was planning just a short trip to London, I found the ‘Top 16’ section to be one of the most useful. It breaks down the best things to see and do in London into a list, featuring photos and a short summary for each entry. For a quick visit, I could easily choose what to do from the list, without having to read through every single page of the book.

 

‘Top Itineraries’ is also a great inclusion in the guide, providing readers with day-by-day suggestions to make the most out of your trip to London. The itineraries include all the top attractions, as well as where to stop off for a bite to eat and something to drink. However, I felt that there could have been more of an ‘off the beaten path’ itinerary as well, as the ones suggested just recommended all the tourist spots. Nevertheless, the copious amount of insider tips that aim to help you save time and money, plus the ‘Live Like A Local’ section, largely compensated for this.

 

One of the issues I found with Lonely Planet London was that it tends to repeat the same information throughout the book, at times presenting very general details that could easily be found online. At nearly 500 pages long, it could have been cut down slightly by stating things just once, which would have also made it easier to carry around.

Pros
  • ‘Top 16’ gives breakdown of the best things to do during a short trip to London
  • ‘Top Itineraries’ presents day-by-day suggestions for the most all-inclusive trip
  • Print edition comes with pull-out map of London
Cons
  • Information is very general rather than focusing on ‘off the beaten track’ hints and tips
  • Repeats information throughout, making it longer than required

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 laboriously search for each individual item. 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 simply 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 lists 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 item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
