TRAILBLAZER GUIDES

Trailblazer guides concentrate on providing information either to a region or country where no other guide is available. They are strong on practical information yet don't neglect cultural background. They give all the best accommodation and eating options available and also advise on what's worth seeing and what's better to avoid. They tell you how to get there, what to pack and what to read before you go. Comprehensive background information on history, climate, food, and the people is combined with detailed sections on the environment and good maps. Entertaining as well as informative, the guides inspire readers not simply to travel but to interact with local people as well.

The Trailblazer mission statement is unique among guidebook publishers.

From the publisher:

"We believe in the joy of travel and we aim to provide readers with the inspiration to make their travelling experience enriching not only for themselves but also for the people whose community or country they are visiting.

We think travel should be more than lying on a beach or ticking off sights in a travel brochure; we also believe it should be more than following a herd of jaded backpackers from one backpacker dive to the next.

In our guides we try to give readers information that will help them interact positively with local people and the local environment."
