More of a `guide to travel' than a `travel guide', this book helps you to avoid the negative aspects of holidays and travel, providing you with practical tips on safety, saving money, avoiding hawkers and finding your way around unfamiliar places.
How to be a Better Traveller is aimed at readers who want to improve their travel experiences. From package holiday tourists to business travellers, indie travellers to armchair travellers, everyone can learn to travel well. Organised chronologically - like a journey itself - the book follows the stages of planning (packing, preparation and departing) through to the actual holiday (arrival, routines and local knowledge) to its ultimate completion (returning home). Along the way Chris covers general travel information (planning, flights, public transport), but also discusses the routines, the psychological preparation, the behaviours and habits you should adopt so that your whole travel experience becomes richer and more rewarding.
Travelling is one of life's greatest experiences, it gives you a new lease of life, picks you up when you're feeling down, helps you make new friends, educates you and gives you long lasting memories. This book ensures you get the most out of all your travels by helping you to become a better traveller.
