Destination Maps combine finely detailed maps with fascinating and practical travel information. Maps feature a large-scale city map, richly layered with tourist and business travel locations and information. 3-D styled drawings provide you with instant identification of famous buildings and landmarks. The reverse side includes regional maps, top attractions, airport diagrams, travel tips, transit maps and an extensive index to streets, cities, neighborhoods, parks, points of interest, museums, monuments, government buildings, subway stations, hotels, and more. Multi-language legends are included on each map.
With positive exceptions this map is similar to tourist maps that are readily available throughout London. An exception is being water resistant, a useful trait in a city where rain is never too far into the future. An exception is being modestly larger than some maps, enabling larger print, easier to read than on other tourist maps I used in the past.
