While I’m busy researching my upcoming trip to Spain’s Andalucia and Costa del Sol area, I thought I’d review one of the guides that I’ve been reading. The DK Eyewitness Top 10 Andalucia & Costa del Sol guide has been very helpful in giving a good overview of the area. It contains (as the name suggests) loads of top 10 lists of the sights, sounds and activities of the area.
- Andalucia’s Top 10, in which it highlights Andalucia’s main attractions, each covering two pages with short descriptions and pictures of the main features of the attraction. Further on the sights make way for such things as the top 10 beaches, hotels, restaurants, tapas bars and holiday events. Example: the city of Granada is a top 10 must-see for Andalucia.
- Around Town, where a certain part of Andalucia is explored in more detail and the top 10 attractions of that part pointed out, for example the top 10 must-sees in Granada.
- Streetsmart, which gives general helpful hints and tips on such topics as things to avoid, banking, security and, my favourite, a small phrase book.
