Lonely Planet Paris is a 416-page guidebook to France’s capital city, featuring all the top attractions, restaurants, bars and things to do, as well as a breakdown of the city by areas. The contents are divided into four sections – Plan Your Trip, Explore Paris, Understand Paris and Survival Guide – plus a chapter devoted to detailed maps of the city.

 

One of my favourite additions to the book is the chapter on what’s available for free in Paris. As a popular tourist destination, prices are fairly expensive meaning those on a budget might find it difficult to fill the time without breaking the bank. However, this section included by Lonely Planet means that you can still enjoy the city without having to keep a close eye on your budget.

 

Another good feature of the book, in my opinion, is the inclusion of a language section that gives the reader a list of the most basic words and phrases in French to help you get by during your trip. Although you will not be able to rely on it to gain complete fluency, it is a good tool to have for a short stay and saves on buying a phrasebook.

 

One of the problems I encountered when using Lonely Planet Paris, however, was that it seemed to have gone quickly out of date with regards to items such as the exchange rate against other currencies and the price of a bus ticket. Not only that, but under places to stay it only listed traditional forms of accommodation, like staying in a hotel or backpackers hostel. To make the guide more up-to-date and in keeping with the evolving world of travel, it would be good to include things such as AirBnb and Couchsurfing.

Pros
  • Includes section on free things to do in Paris
  • Language section gives basic words and phrases in French and saves carrying around a separate phrasebook
Cons
  • Some of the information is out of date
  • Does not include modern forms of accommodation, such as AirBnb and Couchsurfing

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.
