The following year saw an equivalent guide for North America; this led to further editions covering other parts of the world (including Australia).

National Geographic Traveler Guide Books
National Geographic Traveler is a travel magazine published by the National Geographic Society. The magazine was established in 1966, has over 1 million readers and its headquarters are in Washington, D.C..
The magazine’s main focus is on exploring unique destinations around the world through storytelling, photography and illustration.

These Are The Best Travel Guide Books
The Lonely Planet series is an excellent resource for travelers. It covers just about everything you need to know about a destination, from practicalities like getting around and finding accommodations to more subjective topics like food and nightlife.
If you’re looking for an alternative guidebook that focuses more on culture than practical advice, Let’s Go is great. This series offers detailed descriptions of popular attractions but also gives some insight into the history behind them (and why they’re important). For example, if you’re visiting Paris and want to know how many people died during its liberation in 1944 or how long it took Joan of Arc’s remains to be interred at St Denis Cathedral after her execution by English forces near Rouen… well then this might be just what you need!
Another option is Rick Steves Europe by Rick Steves himself (yes those are his real last name!). These books are written by the owner/leader of one of America’s most popular independent tour companies so they contain plenty information about how best get around cities without relying on taxis or public transportation alone which can sometimes be tricky when trying navigate unfamiliar streets without speaking local languages fluently enough yet still wanting access point out interesting places nearby.
