Travel information for men comes in two fruit flavors. The first is getaway info, which includes where to go, how to get there, and what to do once you've arrived. This flavor also provides inside tips on hidden treasures and well-kept secrets. While the rest of the world is pushing and shoving (not to mention fending off aggressive vendors) at the Coliseum in Rome, you can be luxuriating in the baths of Tivoli, even if they're mostly dried out after two millennia.

The other popular flavor of travel information for men is the "fix it" flavor. This stripe includes how to deal with missed flights, lost baggage, and snooty waiters and concierge clerks. Since it's often men who have to step up and assert themselves while their women are actually taking care of the problem, this brand of information is particularly useful for guys.

Reliable Travel Information for Men

You've bought a copy of Fodor's and Let's Go! only to find that that cool steakhouse in Munich or Paris has since been turned into a flower shop. Or perhaps the house of ill-repute you were so eager to visit in Amsterdam's red light district has been made over into a musical conservatory. The first thing to realize is this: you're not alone. There's a whopping amount of bad information in travel books because a) the writers haven't really been to the places they're writing about, and b) if they have in fact been there, they simply claim it was back in the pre-Berlin Wall era.

There's a limit to how many geographical slip-ups and miscalculations can be ascribed to the fall of Communism. To make sure you're not a victim of the collapse of some outdated political or social ideology, try searching online for travel information for men, where listings and writeups are more frequently updated and fact-checked. It only takes a few keystrokes to turn that bawdy house into the concert hall it truly is, while it takes book publishers at least a year to correct their mistakes through subsequent editions. Finally, if you're absolutely wedded to your Lonely Planet or Rough Guide, you may want to browse their web-based listings instead.
