Ask Arthur Frommer: And Travel Better, Cheaper, Smarter is two books in one. The first half is tips from airfare, hotels, cruises, and transport to a tour of types of travel ranging from general tours to special interests. Even nudists find themselves covered. This is a horizon-expanding look at the world of travel. There is a heavy focus on alternative accommodation which leads into the theme of managing the sky-high costs of Europe travel.
“These are a few of my favorite places,” is the fun second half with Mr. Frommer expounding on destinations around the world, in reasoned, opinionated fashion. It is a great brainstorming tool to complement the first half of the book. Most guidebooks focus on a specific destination and rave about it. This is a counter-weight from an expert saying what he loves and hates. I hope he takes another look at Macau.
