Handy pocket guide!
on 22 June 2009
Off to Turkey? Need a bit of information? Don't want to be weighed down with a large/heavy book? Well this little guide may be for you. Bought as off myself later this year and never been to Turkey before so wanted to get a bit of an appreciation before we went! Like to do a bit of pre-holiday planning to maximise the time available.
This guide isn't bad. 190 pages, 165 mm by 115 mm and just 12 mm thick (and at only 230 g). It'll fit in a pocket and with itsglossy covers shouldn't get too damaged. There's a few fold out maps inside both front and rear covers covering road maps of the region and a few city/town street maps30 odd pages of introduction - some useful some only if you've never left the UK before!! The guide overall covers the main sights with a fair selection of photographs that give a reasonable taster of what to expect.
It's not extensive, it's not over detailed, but at this size and price you can't go far wrong.
