2. Tourism Offices Worldwide Directory –

The TOWD has been implemented and designed so that you can choose the country you are going to, then find the local tourism site for that country. It can be quite a challenge finding the right information on the internet, and even more so if you’re visiting somewhere not globally recognized as a ‘top attraction’, so this directory will help you find the perfect site for wherever it is you’re going.

Heather is a normal woman, just like me or your, from Bristol, UK. However, Heather also travels. A lot. And she documents this on her website/blog here. Sites like these are perfect for a down-to-earth, realistic review of places and people. Here you get a real person’s thoughts and opinions on the places you’re going to, so you’ll be able to get a better understanding of what real people think.

10. Eyeflare –

Eyeflare is perfect for the more budget-conscious amongst us, perhaps more aimed towards backpackers. There are reviews of hotels and restaurants, ideas for destinations, guides, recommendations for reading, and some beautiful photography from around the world. Created in 1994, it’s certainly one of the oldest tourism sites around, but with age comes plenty of experience, and this site certainly has a lot of that!
