"The perfect miniature guide and map to aid you around Amsterdam!…"
I am a huge fan of the Dorling Kindersley Eye Witness Pocket and map guides. I cannot believe such a vast amount of information can be placed in such a tiny book (14.8 x 6.6 x 0.6 cm). For myself these guides are essential when travelling as I do not want to use the internet on my phone when abroad as it would cost a fortune! I have used the Paris and Venice books before, but this time I shall be reviewing the Amsterdam version (ISBN-13: 978-1409326953).<br><br>Each guide contains a colour coded map showing all the wonders Amsterdam has to offer area by area. It also gives information about the areas further afield and possible day trips one could go on from Amsterdam. The book ends with practical information including how to get around, a survival guide including some Dutch words, and a huge map that unfolds at the back of the book. One side of the map is of central Amsterdam and the other side of the map contains an Amsterdam transport map and "the historic centre". <br><br>All in all an extremely useful book <img border="0" src="/emo/te/1.gif" alt="smile">Read moreLess
