Lonely Planet has always been the essential backpacker’s guide, who would travel around the world with hardly any money. Lonely Planet has always been a reliable source of information if you wanted to travel without spending much money, and staying in cheap hotels and travelling in bus. However, Lonely Planet has realized that much of its travellers are now older people who have a lot of money to spare.
In order to cater to this group. They have launched the Discover series which cost $25 for each book. the books are available for countries such as Australia, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Spain and Thailand. Discover Europe would be added on May 10th. These trips are for those who want to travel for a short period of time like one or two weeks.
Some of the features of the ook are maps, best-of lists, recommendations for a variety of budgets, tips from locals, and also gerat pictures and images. This would certainly help people who are not looking at saving money but instead looking at travelling in luxury in a short period of time. Looks like Lonely Planet has realized the importance of luxury travel finally.
