Destination Kindle Travel Guides

Do you like to travel?  I try to go somewhere new every year,  and I know that carrying around all of those thick travel books can be annoying at times.  There is a new set of travel guides available now for the Kindle called Destination.  Northstar Travel Media and RosettaBooks have joined forces to create Kindle only travel guides that are quite inexpensive…only $2.99.

The other cool part is that with the Kindle applications available on so many devices and smartphones, you might as well have a library of travel guides in your pocket.

All of the travel guides include a variety of things to do and places to eat that can fit anyone’s preference.

According to the Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) description, every guide includes these features:

“In every guide you’ll find:
• recommendations for a wide range of sightseeing options
• gems of restaurants, with a special focus on local cuisine
• specialty shops for local crafts, food and gifts
• 3, 4 and 5 star hotel reviews that tell you the whole story, as if you were speaking with a concierge
…and much, much more.”

I’ve always wanted to go to Ireland, so I’m really excited to see that Destination has an Ireland travel guide, specifically for Dublin.  You will also find one for Paris and Rome.  I hope that they will include one for Switzerland at some point.

Want to go to Russia or Turkey?  Check out Destination Moscow or Destination Istanbul.

Then, there are travel guides for many of the best tourist attractions and major cities in the US, such as Las Vegas, Washington DC and Boston.  Boston is one of my favorite places to go visit.

Writing this Kindle travel guide post has me itching to travel.  Where are some of your favorite places to go?
