Lonely Planet Portugal is a guidebook detailing everything you need to know in planning your trip to Portugal, from eating and drinking like a local to the beaches of the Algarve. The book contains over 70 maps of Portugal’s various cities and regions, while its cultural insights will undoubtedly provide you with a richer, more rewarding travel experience, including information on art, music, architecture, religion, history, wine and cuisine.

 

A feature of the book that I think sets it apart from other guidebooks and internet resources is the inclusion of symbols to help quickly identify listings, including sights, eating, drinking, entertainment and must-visit recommendations. There are even symbols for their sections on accommodation that let you know, for example, if there is Wi-Fi or air conditioning in the rooms. This makes the guidebook one of the most all-inclusive that I have come across and helps make your trip as easy to plan as possible.

 

Another aspect of the book that I like is that it is not exclusively for those travelling with an unlimited budget, but caters also to those looking to stay in backpackers’ hostels and live off cheap eats. Many travel blogs and guides that I have encountered often just recommend places that will set you back significantly, therefore the range of prices for all budgets is a great addition.

 

One of the issues that I found with the book was with some of the city maps that are only really good for getting a general overview of a place rather than to navigate your way round due to their size and lack of detail. This means that you will be better off using Google Maps on your phone or getting a free city map from the tourist information centre.

Pros
  • Includes sections on culture, history and language
  • Symbols help to quickly identify listings and find out about various important accommodation facilities
  • Caters to a range of different budgets
Cons
  • City maps difficult to use practically

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.
