Jump down to Country and City Travel Guides
These travel guides, destination sections of online travel companies, and directories are some of the most popular ones on the web. They have comprehensive travel and destination information. Almost all online travel agencies also have extensive destination and travel information.  This list also contains travel guides and travel resources you can get to without having to go to a travel agency site.  We also include well-known travel guides whose websites describe the paperback editions they publish even if they do not have online travel information or only have summary information.

Some Gold Star Sites.
* * * If you are a world traveler, for a very special treat, try the SuperTravelNet.com website.  This is how you dreamed a world travel website should be navigated. Start with an interactive map of the world, zoom in and keep zooming until you find an area of a country you are interested in. What is the special treat? As you zoom in there is a list of cities and villages to the side of the map and information categories that are within the chosen area. This is a Gold Star site in our book.  Another Gold Star site for world city guides is the fantastic World Executive website. (Didn't you get a gold star when you were in school?)  For those hitting the road in the United States or Canada, Travelocity has put together some local discoveries you might want to visit on your trip or if they are within a day trip from where you live.  They call them Local Secrets - Big Finds.

Travel Guide Reviews.  Here are some websites that have reviews of travel guidebook series and websites: Book Reviews: Kingwood College Library, Independent Traveler.com Website Reviews: ConsumerSearch, Thegoodwebguide.

A Brief History of Travel Guides Travels Long, Strange Odyssey by Susanne Mantell that appeared in Publishers Weekly in January, 2006 is a wonderful, concise review of popular travel guide series, how they came about, and how they have changed over the years.  For details of some of the famous guide book authors, see the Wikipedia Guide Book topic.
