    One thought on “Istanbul (DK Eyewitness Travel Guide)”

    1. After using the Knopf guidebook in Paris (/book/show/16) and LOVING it I was really disappointed by this book. It might be interesting to read before you go, but it is not the book you want to be relying on for information on the ground. The maps suck. They recommend restaurants and then give addresses on streets that aren't labeled on the maps. It was also kind of big and bulky to carry around.Istanbul is great though. I highly recommend the city itself!

    2. I've been pouring over this book for the last three days. OMGosh I want to go so bad. A romantic trip with hubbie! That would be so awesome. I didn't realize that the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque were right next to each other. I want to go in late autumn. I have the itinerary all planned out. Now all I need is a baby-sitter, a few thousand bucks, and for Chris to take a week off of work. Let's pack!

    3. It's heavy to travel with, but it exists to give more overview information of places, which is nice and lacking in guide books like Lonely Planet and its peers. Good brief histories of one of the oldest places on Earth. That said, this is not the guide book you want to use if you are looking to find the same hostels and restaurants as all those other globetrotters clutching their Lonely Planets to their chests.

    4. Detailed and clear guide. One of those rare guides that you can actually completely rely on in a foreign country completed with emergency telephone numbers and survival guides. Must read if you're planning to visit Istanbul. As for me, I picked up this book because I like to look at pictures of a foreign country and run off to imagination-land but it was a very useful book nevertheless.

    5. These Eyewitness Travel Guides by DK Travel are the best I've found. I find many travel guides too text heavy which makes it hard to pull out one highlight over another, but these guides get it right. They are the perfect balance of content and photos/graphic interface.

    6. Used on a spring trip to Istanbul. Fairly useful. I like the format of the Eyewitness Guides, though I did a lot of other reading to familiarize myself with the city.

    7. Like it says in the description, this DK book is more colorful and descriptive than other travel guides, but is also slightly less helpful which is what I needed.
