The Best City Guides

Not sure when to use these? Wanderium automatically recommends relevant gear and services based on your trip's conditions.

The best curated, editorial driven city guides aka no need to sift through dozens of incomprehensible reviews on TripAdvisor saying "ho dor food was great but service was okay, negative 1 star." These are by people who are well traveled, good storytellers, and refined in their taste... so basically Anthony Bourdain. Only good grammar and professional photos found here.

Beautifully designed app with Lonely Planet's signature quality

📍 Available in 3 countries and 240 cities

Lonely Planet, historically known for their dead tree books, has reimagined itself for the mobile age with their new Guides app. It's a joy to use: a clean and straightforward interface, powerful filtering, offline ability, convenient bookmarking, and beautiful pictures. Oh, the content is also to the point and well vetted with all the detailed information you'd need like the typical cost for lunch or dinner. Although it started off sparse they now offer over 200+ cities. We're big fans.

Atlas Obscura

Atlas Obscura

For discovering cool, off the beaten path gems

🌏 Available globally

Atlas Obscura specializes in places you don't often find in typical guides, like an abandoned subway station or an island full of cats, making it great if you've already hit all the tourist must sees or you fancy yourself a weirdo (raises hand). The writing, visuals, and design are all well done and even integrate cool community features like saving places to a "want to visit" list.
