Lonely Planet is still one of the best places on the Internet to get updated and authoritative information about travel destinations. In addition to a good overview of the region, in-text links to places of interest help readers craft detailed itineraries, and offer interesting tidbits of information about each destination. The site is easy to navigate, with one exception: links open in the same window unless you remember to right click on them. This can be a problem if you're interested in several alternate destinations.
