New Holland’s Globetrotter Travel Guides comprise a range of practical and accessible guides to a number of cities, regions and countries worldwide. Globetrotter guides incorporate essential information in an easy-to-carry and easy-to-reference format. They provide visitors with an introduction highlighting the country’s ‘must see’ areas, allowing readers to make the most of their time away. Presented in a paperback PVC format, each guide in the series provides vital tips for visitors and includes information on the best places to stay, eat and shop, star-rated top attractions, detailed regional profiles and recommendations of the best tours and excursions.
Individual titles also have a separate, pull-out overview map in the back pocket of the guide that serves as a companion to the book itself. An introductory section profiles the destination with details of the land, a brief history, government and economy and the people. Every chapter is summarised in the ‘At-a-Glance’ sections at the end of each chapter. There is also a Travel Tips section at the back of each guide providing practical guidance and information on tourist information services, entry requirements, customs, health requirements, getting there, what to pack, money matters, accommodation, transport, business hours, time difference, electricity, health precautions, useful phrases, personal safety, emergencies, etiquette and tipping.
