Tuesday Travel Website of the Week: Arthur Frommer Online

October 12th, 2010 · No Comments · Tips & Tricks, Travel Website

Website: Arthur Frommer Online http://www.frommers.com/blog/
The founder of Frommer’s Guides is still writing about travel in his personal blog, but this is far from a corporate blog to promote his business.  It’s about travel: how we travel, the travel industry, travel trends, and great travel deals.  It’s full of useful details but it’s not a rehash of news stories or the PR releases of the day.  It covers all types of travel including cruising, international package tours, independent travel, weekend trips, and always, budget travel.

What I enjoy most about reading this blog is Arthur Frommer’s personal opinion.  He is frank, not afraid to bash an inferior product or rave about favorite destination. Personally, I prefer travel bloggers who write what they really think rather than sounding like a tourism promotion mouthpiece.  Frommer is all about promoting travel, but is not shy about pointing out experiences that discourage travel or leave the traveler unhappy.

Tuesday Travel Website of the Week: Each week, Meg highlights a travel related website and describes why she thinks you should check it out.
