A sturdy, laminated road map of Los Angeles although the smaller streets are not marked and the lay out could be clearer. Does include a list of restaurants, hotels and sights along with the street index.
A neatly arranged general guide that introduces the island as a whole before covering in reasonable detail the best sights and sites. May best suit travellers whose accommodation has been booked in advance and are looking to explore beyond it.
An upbeat little volume aimed squarely at a flying visit, with only the most essential sights covered. Short and thorough itineraries suggest how to spend one's days, right down to where to stop for lunch. See the 'Cote d'Azur Spiral' for more extensive coverage of the Riviera.
Perhaps rather clumsily presented, this is nonetheless a good companion for a short sightseeing dash. Itineraries are suggested according to the length of your trip and the highlights are covered well enough.
A colourful, neatly arranged general guide that introduces the region as a whole before covering in reasonable detail the best sights and sites. May best suit travellers whose accommodation has been booked in advance and who are looking to explore beyond it.
A colourful guide to 50 walks in the area ranging from 2 to 10 miles in length. Each walk has about a double page with facts, background infomation, directions and a simple road map. In this region I imagine it might be more useful to have an OS map with land topography.
Arranged thematically in colour-coded sections, this guide is packed with information but falls rather awkwardly between a comprehensive practical guide and a sightseeing companion for package holidaymakers.
An excellent pocket-sized volume that covers all aspects and regions of the island, ensuring that your explorations take you to the very best Barbados has to offer. There are insightful notes on local culture, too.
