Subject: Travel books/Guides
Hi Amelia If you are looking for good travel guides I would suggest the following: Go to a large bookstore and leaf through each of the travel books. It is a really a personal preference as to which one you like. I prefer the Lonely Planet while my brother likes the Rough Guides and the only real difference is the way that book's information is laid out. Both would be excellent choices.

Also if you are looking for travel books in general you might want to look at the following website I maintain on the subject. Please fell free to send me other suggestions of books I have missed Hope this helps. Tom Cobban,London, Canada
