5-0 out of 5 stars Photographs with the added bonus of good writing
I received National Geographic as a gift because I was getting too old for Ranger Rick. (Quite the jump, I must add).I read my first issue and immediately wanted more.

The pictures, as many have said, are always stunning, and the writing is spectacular.Obviously, such a world-renowned magazine must be spectacular.

My only complaint is that it takes so long to read that, with my busy schedule, I don't ever have time to read anything else.They tend to pile up, but I read them all eventually- I can't bear the thought of just putting an unread issue straight into the rack with the read ones.It really is fantastic and makes a great Bar or Bat Mitzvah gift.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic publication despite its liberal slant
Now now!Before you get mad at me for my "liberal slant" comment in the title of this review, let me remind you that I also said it's "a fantastic publication.":-) No matter what your political stance on hot button issues such as global warming and oil, you have to admit that National Geographic takes a liberal stance.Is that good or bad?Entirely up to you to decide.But to their credit, they do a VERY fair job, within the articles, of explaining and examining ALL aspects and points of view.

I subscribed because like most of us, I've always been a fan of their photographs, but as they began to arrive in the mail I found myself poring over each and every page, reading every issue from cover to cover.I've learned so many wonderful things about cultures and people I will never get a chance to see in real life, and I've educated myself on issues that otherwise would remain a mystery.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of having a subscription is the inserts that come in almost every issue.My all time favorite thus far has been a composite map of the entire world at night, showing natural gas vents, wild fires, and city lights across the globe.Fascinating!

For the almost embarrassingly low price of $49.00 a year I am more educated, informed, and inspired then I was before I subscribed.

5-0 out of 5 stars It does not get better
This is the best ever magazine in all fields....though they are getting mean nowadays and reducing the number of pages per issue!!! It is really a great reading from cover to cover...everybody must get it!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine on Many Fronts!
I am not a magazine reader at all. Adventure is the only magazine I have a subscription to (going on my 3rd year). It has great photography, travel journals, spotlights on different place to visit (i.e. South Africa). It also is fantastic if you are an avid outdoorsman/woman. The cover a lot camping, rafting, kayaking, etc. Well written, informative, great pictures. Always finding new places to write about. Good read every month - and CHEAP!

5-0 out of 5 stars National Geographic Adventure
I don't know what the person was thinking who reviewed this magazine (Jan 2004) and said he had cancelled his subscription of 15 years.This magazine only first began publication a few years ago.I have every issue and have loved and read every one.Adventure is the best of the National Geographic publications and is for those who are young or at least young at heart.Some of the articles are a bit sassy -- but just enough to make them fun!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what it used to be.
I have just cancelled my subscription to National Geographic Magazine after 15 years of membership.Regrettably the magazine has lost its former lustre and has become too americanized and too focussed upon 911 and the two wars in the middle east.I need a magazine that is truely worldly in scope and covers nature and cultural diversity.My search led me to three candidates: Geo Magazine - good but not available in english; Geographical - british, good but a little shallow; and finally I settled upon CNN Traveller - an excellent magazine to which I am now subscribed and is all and more than what National Geographic used to be.I just wish more publishers would give National Geographic some competition.

Editorial Review

As the title implies, Traveller offers more than just articles and advice on vacation planning. Beyond resort and hotel reports, its insightful, thorough, and informative features delve into regional culture, transportation, and cuisine, serving those who are as interested in actually experiencing another part of the world as they are in escaping their own. Traveller also offers pragmatic articles on the perils of visiting foreign countries, such as car insurance (or the lack thereof), medical care, and crimes such as pickpocketing. Other features pinpoint charming diversions--a roadside dried-coconut vendor on Maui's Hana Highway, Seattle's surrealExperience Music Project museum, the latest boutique hotel in Miami's South Beach, or a tiny crêpe shop in Paris. The focus is on more opulent destinations--those looking to do London on $15 a day should look elsewhere. But whether you'll travel by mountain bike, Sherpa guide, or Learjet, and whether you're on a lengthy sojourn or a weekend spa getaway, Traveller inspires a voyager's dreams. --Beth Massa ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Some good articles,, but disappointing
I have subscribed to Traveler for a while now.Before I picked up that subscription, I was already subscribing to National Geographic Traveler and Budget Travel.I have to say that for the average, middle-class person, Budget Travel is the most practical.I enjoy reading it the most because I want to know how to get a great deal . . . not how to get the most for your dollar in First Class.This magazine is definitely geared toward the more affluent traveler.It is also geared toward the sophisticated, chic traveler--not the average traveler.While it is interesting to read about places the wealthy are able to afford and dream about going there, I would rather a magazine cater more to my tastes and more toward the tastes of its general subscription population.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Overall Travel Magazine I Have Found
I think that in terms of overall content presented, 'Conde Nast Traveler' is the best travel magazine currently on the market. Some other reviewers have raised some valid points concerning article length, and bias toward upscale properties. I think that there are other magazines that might be more suitable for others, including 'Budget Travel' and 'National Geographic Traveler', both of which I also subscribe to and enjoy, though they both have their limitations and issues as well.

So what sets 'Conde Nast' apart? I think it is the willingness to find new and exciting vacation destinations that are still reasonable enough to get to as to make them worthwhile to a large audience. Some of the more exotic magazines have great articles on hiking in Tibet and the like, but how many people are really able to do that (or can afford to do it?) My point is that although it is by no means perfect, I think the editors and writers do consciously strike a balance between the too mundane and too exotic (and expensive) and attempt to focus the majority of the magazine in that area.

This is just too good of a magazine to pass up. The 'Deals of the Month' section alone justifies the price. Of all the travel magazines I read on a monthly basis (currently four) 'Conde Nast Traveler' is my favorite and I highly recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars used to be...
I used to love this magazine.It still has some excellent articles, but it is true that there are way too many filler issues now with top 100 lists of things I have no interest in (resort hotels, spas, expensive travel agents).However, on the flip side, it never talks down to the reader - the audience is assumed to be well travelled and somewhat sophisticated - which I appreciate.I checked out Nat Geographic Traveller hoping it would be like the CN Traveller of old, but although it has nicer photography (with few gratuitously scantily clad female shots), it seemed much more mainstream - like I had already done many of the "dream trips" befor I hit my 30s and the information also seemed much shallower.I like Geo, but I struggle through the French and it's a lot more expensive. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite magazine
This magazine is one of my nightly treats! I take it with me to bed and read it until I fell asleep, dreaming about the vacations awaiting me.
This great magazine covers just anywhere in the world. I have learnt a lot about travelling. I even love it's advertisements(the vacation packages).

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Content, but lousy delivery
This is a great magazine with some interesting articles.It's a very quick read though, and I do wish they'd write about some more exotic vacation options.They seem to focus way too much on U.S. travel.

I like the editorial tone and do read (and enjoy) the editor's letter (something I rarely do with other magazines).

My main problem is that I'm constantly receiving my issue in the mail one or two months after it's out in the stands.I complained, but didn't receive a response.I'm not impressed.I'm not sure if I'm going to renew my subscription.

I'd love to see a magazine that combined fitness advice and travel information.I'd subscribe to that in a heartbeat!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Place To Start Travel Plans
Arthur Frommer's "Budget Travel" is a terrifc magazine for those thinking about travel or vacation. In the 10 issues you get over a year(for a "budget" price no less), you'll find hundreds of ideas for places to go and suggestions on how to get there, when is the best time to go, where and what to eat, where to stay, local shopping, the list goes on. And..the great part is the writers of the articles have done all the work for you. They have combed the web for the best prices, attractions to visit, and for accomodations that suit your needs, and in most cases have actually visited the destination or taken the Road Trip to let you know how it went.

There are articles of interest for those wanting a family style vacation( a recent article, listed and wrote about camps that the entire family could attend, with various price ranges), romantic getaways or business trips. Maybe you are looking for the best cruise deal, or want to tour Europe. There's something for every style of travel.

Every month there is a "Trip Coach". People write in and have a good idea of where they want to go, and BT plans out an entire itinerary for them. "Road Trip" is another monthly feature that plans out an excursion through a particular area. These articles give lots of details of places to go, and things to do and see along the way. They also give you a breakdown of choices in different price ranges, of hotel accomodations, travel modes, restaurants, and attractions. In a recent article they even listed which hotels where geared toward people interested in environmental issues.

So for the person looking for some great ideas for a vacation, or anyone just wanting to get away for a while, this magazine offers excellent advice. However, I thought there were too many ads for vacation spots that were "over-budget". Also, I would have liked to have seen a little more for those wanting to travel for an extended period of time. Maybe for those retiring, and want to see the country in a RV for example.(although there was an article recently on how to BUY an RV, there wasn't much in the way of travel ideas).

Overall, you really get your money's worth with ideas for travel, and a periodical that will save you time and money. It's a good place to start your vacation plans, and you may not have to go any further!

Enjoy....Laurie ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Image vs. Content
I'm not sure who's at the helm of this operation but I'd be willing to bet they don't get Outside too often. Not to be too cynical about it, but I just don't find this mag to be as USEFUL as it was before. If you like LOTS of articles on who the coolest extreme sports stars are, how they got their abs, and what gear they're wearing, subscribe NOW. The magazine looks amazing, the photography is top notch and they still manage to come up with a thorny article on the environment periodically. But for my money, it just feels like the editorial staff has been plucked from New York image mags that do one thing really well - SELL. I read National Geographic Adventure, and unlike Outside, I USE IT for information because it has CONTENT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative Mag for the Adventurous
I've been a subscriber to Outside magazine for several years, and it seems to go through its ups and downs in terms of the strength of its editorial content, especially regarding the political side of environmentalism. It is still easily the most informative magazine out there for lovers of the outdoors, but just note that the focus is on active, not armchair, appreciation of nature. Beyond the occasionally great and always heavily knowledgeable product reviews, the key strength of this magazine is the well-written and strongly researched articles on outdoor issues of concern, not just in America but around the world. An outstanding recent example, among many, concerns the economics of environmentalism in the conservative Western U.S. This is the type of strong conservationist reporting that can usually only be found otherwise in books. Other more whimsical articles are just fun to read for those with off-kilter interests, such as recent pieces on urban rock climbing or sauna fanatics in Finland.

Many other articles could be classified more as travel/tourism than adventure, but the accompanying photography is always top-notch, and the editors have a knack for finding out-of-the-way hidden treasures around the world that are ripe for discovery by the adventurous. (But on the other hand, the magazine could be faulted for contributing to the recent trend of hyping previously unknown outdoor paradises that have since become crowded, such as Molly Sods Wilderness in West Virginia.)Personally, I would like to see a little less focus on expensive vacations that extreme sports fanatics can take in hard-to-reach nations, and more on what folks with more realistic means (and amounts of free time) can do in humble parks and forests near home. But despite its habit of losing its focus at times, I will continue to be a fan of Outside for years to come, and might just travel to some of those hyped exotic adventure locations. [~doomsdayer520~]

4-0 out of 5 stars It serves its purpose!
For the guy that loves the outdoors and all the wonders that it provides, "Outside" is the magazine for him.Filled with straightforward info on travel, workout and health tips, and those little gadgets that make outdoor activities easier to tackle, this publication hits the nail on the head.

I would've never discovered it if it hadn't been offered as a one of the perks for renewing my subscription with a magazine readers' service, and for that, I am grateful. ... Read more

Editorial Review

"Destinations, Adventures, Dreams" promises the masthead, and this magazine delivers. Unlike many other travel magazines that are really general lifestyle publications, Islands focuses entirely on islands--as vacation destinations and as cultures. Packed with information helpful for planning a vacation, this magazine helps make the dream a reality, spotlighting a wide variety of price points and destinations. While giving great attention to tropical climates, contributors also visit temperate locations. Stories are written with a personal touch--personal experiences intermingle with details on the location, including social, economic, and political dimensions. Vivid photographs and maps give the reader a better sense of the locations (and a desire to visit immediately!). Advertisements pertain directly to vacation planning, including rentals, resorts, and airfares. Subscribe for the dream of the island getaway, but be careful--you may just find yourself booking it. --Elizabeth Bowker ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Islands - Beautiful Photographs
This magazine is in part a magazine of dreams. If you have ever dreamed of getting away to an island paradise, then this magazine is for you. All of the articles and photographs are of island destinations. Enjoy your taste of paradise! This magazine covers islands in every part of the world including Hawaii and the South Pacific islands.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great photos.But that's all, folks!
The photography is fantastic.I love the shots of tropical islands, clear blue sky, soft white sands, palm trees, and crystal ocean water.Basically, paradise on display.Period.Unfortunately, everything else about the magazine is disappointing:The articles are junk, usually full of random babble which provides no real insight into searching, planning and executing a vacation.The advertising is marginally better, but the options are all limited.I can (and do) get more useful information from my travel agent, discount travel magazines & brochures, word-of-mouth, and the internet.

I thought this magazine would be a great "virtual" vacation every time it arrived in the mail.The problem was that it only lasted about 15 minutes, the amount of time it took to read through the entire mag.The one claim to fame, however, for Islands magazine is that it introduced me to my honeymoon destination, the South Pacific, many years ago.Even with this, though, the most useful information was found on the internet.

For about $15/year, this isn't a bad deal.But, if anyone knows of a magazine with Islands' photo quality, and useful articles, please post.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of a few great magazines to cover Hawaii
Islands is gorgeous. The photography is amazing and that's so much of what the subject matter requires. I am a longtime subscriber and am never disappointed. If you are interested in the same level of quality but with a focus on Hawaii - look at Zento Magazine - ASIN Number: B0000ABGD0. An amazing magazine devoted to creating transformational experiences for visitors to Hawaii.. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars over all nice mag
"Cruise Travel" is a magazine about cruising, and is generally informative and interesting. Though it seems to mainly pertain to an older reading audience and the photos are not always as interesting or as amazing as the other main cruise travel magazine "Porthole" I am generally pleased with the content of the magazine.


5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Cruise Magazine I Have Seen
'Cruise Travel' is the best cruise magazine that I have seen, and though a fairly thin magazine, is packed with great useful information. I particularly enjoy the Cruise of the Month, Port of the Month, and especially the Ship of the Month features. They also have monthly news updates, and letters to the editor that are normally well selected to give diverse viewpoints, and have frequently brought up issues I had never considered. The number of ads is very reasonable, and they all relate to the subject matter and are therefore not objectionable, like in some other publications I have seen.

I appreciate the attempt to cover all bases and levels of cruising, from the biggest suites on the 'Queen Mary 2' to any party on the sea by Carnival. I am a devoted Celebrity customer, and find the reporting on Celebrity to be spot-on accurate, so I am assuming that it is with other lines that I am not familiar with, too. I especially enjoyed the recent June 2004 issue in which Celebrity's beautiful 'Summit' graced the cover as Ship of the Month.

This magazine is a great resource for anyone considering a cruise, from a first timer to an experienced cruiser. I highly recommend 'Cruise Travel'.

I'm not sure how much use the average person would get out of this magazine.It is sort of nice to read if you are dreaming about retiring, but the actual information is more extensive and useful on the internet.Try findyourspot.com instead and save the $18 for six issues of advertisements.If you are looking for retirement communities, it might be worth subscribing or just buying one issue at the news stand.

3-0 out of 5 stars Somehow, this was not particularly good
I was hoping for more in-depth articles than what I got here. The towns listed were mostly resort-types, and there was far less on living in regular places where one might retire and live on a fixed income. I think I expected more from "Where to Retire" than I got out of my subscription, so I didn't renew. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Uninformative Articles, Questionable Subscription Practices
I subscribed to T+L for one year.My wife and I found the magazine to be uninformative and of little value when planning our travels.Most of the magazine seems to be centered around places to go shopping and the photos that accompany the articles are artistic photos, usually of models wearing $1,000 outfits, instead of informative photos of the resorts or hotels.The recommended travel products tend to focus on $1,200 designer duffels which, while perhaps within reach of the target demographic, are unlikely to survive many trips through a major airport.

In addition, my subscription came with an unrequested automatic renewal.I didn't enjoy the magazine and nearly every copy was in my recycle bin within 15 minutes of receiving it.However T+L decided that I would somehow like a renewal although I certainly never requested one.In my book, those are questionable and perhaps unethical business practices.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dreams of how the "leisure class" vacations, perhaps lives
This reader thoroughly enjoys the photos and articles about 'exotic' vacations in Europe, Asia, the Southern Hemisphere (New Zealand] and Central or South America ... one can dream ... and possibly one day live the dream. One learns of vacations in out-of-the-way unique locales. For instance, in the July 2004 issue, there is a feature article on "Puglia' dubbed "the next Tuscany". There one can rent space in a 15th century convent or room at the most modern resort. In either case, one can taste the finest Italian cuisine, fresh food, grown and raised in the region.Another adventure which appeals to this reader is "perfume tours in Provence".

This reader is in love with Mayan ruins, so reading about how Richard Hansen, an U.C.L.A. archeologist, has worked for 25 years to excavate and preserve, El Mirador, one of the largest mayan cities, is of great value. This reader shares his dream to designate the region a national monument and turn it into a living outdoor museum. It would become a top tourist attraction, such as the Tikal National Park (Guatemala's most popular). Another fascinating article featured "Shanghai". Here one learns of where to shop for silk slippers and the beautiufl blue and white porcelain for which it is famous. A person can have designer clothes copied by tailors at huge savings ... The contrast of ancient and modern China is amazing. Going antique shopping would be most satisfying ... Featuring, Ming Tsai, a Chinese chef and owner of "The Blue Ginger" Restaurant in Massachsetts is quite the perfect ending to a wonderful magazine. He is often featured on PBS channels sharing his recipes and techniques for Chinese cooking. This reader enjoys every article and looks forward to each monthly issure. Highest recommendations. Erika Borsos (erikab93)

1-0 out of 5 stars Fuzzy Out of Focus Photography
Travel & Leisure was once the best travel magazine.Now I rate it the worst.Endlessly trendy, hopelessly chic.It's fru-fru.My biggest complaint is the photography.Seems the editors have told their photographers to shoot only over-exposed, overly white fuzzy photos. And there is this irritating penchance for illustrating their articles with full page photos of local inhabitants.DUH! Thum through any issue at the newstand and see what I mean.Try "Conde Nast Traveler" instead. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better...
Of the two existing reviews here currently, you couldn't get much different responses.Ironically, I'm right in the middle.I'm not Kama'aina (native) to Hawaii, but Hawaii is my passion; I live, breath, and sleep it.Hawaii is a place to be respected and loved.So how does Hawaii magazine handle that task?

Well, I guess it depends on what you're looking for.If you want the more tourist sided flavor to Hawaii, then the magazine probably will be what you enjoy.If you're looking for more native and eco-tourism based stuff, don't expect as much.Occasionally they'll put in pieces that aren't half bad on this topic, but it could be better.There recent anniversary editions were pretty good, but overall it still seems more like one big advertisement for tourists.Of course, that's where the money is, but you'd think a magazine called

1-0 out of 5 stars Hawaii Desrves Better
Hawaii magazine is the magazine of the state, but they aren't even in the state of Hawaii. Hawaii Magazine is published, edited, and designed all in Southern California by the same folks that publish Cat Fancy Magazine. Hawaii is a unique and magical place, and that magic cannot be captured from an office thousands of miles away. This shows in the pages of the magazine, it's just not "Hawaii". In addition the printing is dull and the colors are flat, the paper is thin and the stories are watered down press releases. Hawaii deserves something better. Try Islands Magazine - it's a great magazine, even if only a portion of it covers Hawaii.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you love the Hawaiian Islands, Hawaii magazine is a must!
We go to Hawaii annually and this magazine helps us stay in touch with island happenings, situations, cultural events on the mainland, recipes and all things Hawaiian.It helps ease the homesickness of being away from our 2nd "home".They even have an annual photo contest to enter for the photography buff. (Would I be shamefully plugging that I won the Cultural category in the issue featured to lure you to this review? [Bringing the Islands Home]);-)
For Hawaii fanatics, this mags for you...hands down! ... Read more

All articles are very well illustrated and are written at a level that can appeal to both the casual and the dedicated Russophile.I enjoy the magazine on one level, and my Russian born wife enjoys it on a very different level, with the main point in common being that we both read it from cover to cover.

I love the short little factoids that they also include each issue, and even find the advertisements interesting!

Lastly, they have an annual Russian calendar that I've been buying in copious quantities each year - excellent for personal use and for gifts!A great magazine from a great company, and about a once-great and potentially great-again country. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Brevity is not the plus that other reviewers suggest it is
For $5.99 an issue, TravelAmerica ought to offer more than the kind of advertising copy it does. For instance, in the August 2004 issue, you get a list of 800 numbers for casinos in the South--a useful addition, but certainly not when the article including them skimps on other details that are NOT readily available online. And what real traveler needs to know that you can find "a shrunken head and six-legged cow" at the Wisconsin Dells Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.

Worse, the magazine looks and feels cheap. The colors in photographs are off and the paper is low quality, if slick. With ten full pages of ads, and a number of quarter and half pages, you really don't get what you pay for.

4-0 out of 5 stars Let's Hit the Road, with Travel America
Travel America is a short magazine published every two months. Each issue is exactly 58 pages in length and carries a high cover price of $5.99. It's a magazine that covers travel in the 50 United States, and it can be counted on to include many out of the way places, as well as some of the better- known tourist destinations.

The strongest point of this magazine is the fact that it includes lesser- known points of interest. Unlike other travel magazines that stress the more popular tourist sites, the expensive resorts, and the first class flights, Travel America keeps things simple. It finds unusual and unique places to visit, most of which the average person has probably never heard about and most of which are affordable and relatively easy to reach.

With such a short amount of space, Travel America is forced to offer mostly shorter articles in order to still be able to include a wide variety of travel possibilities. Because of this, the articles often do not cover everything as completely and thoroughly as some readers might prefer. Most of the articles just try to cover all the basic facts necessary to whet your appetite to pay a visit. Any other fact- gathering is up to the reader.

To help readers learn more about a possible destination, Travel America tries to include web sites and phone numbers with most of its articles. This is useful because, like I stated before, the articles themselves are usually very short and they don't cover everything that can/should be talked about. This often makes it imperative to check the web site or place a call to get more information.

Travel America isn't the greatest travel publication in existence. The short length of each issue can get a little frustrating and the price per issue is rather steep. But it does a nice job in pointing out new and often unusual places to visit. It can help tremendously when it comes time for your next family trip.

4-0 out of 5 stars Attractions in America
Travel America magazine is a great guide to all the little tourist attractions in every town.There are summaries of touring groups of all kinds from high adventure to tours designed for seniors.Difference cities and states are featured in each issue, and a nice feature includes the attractions that are near-by or a short drive from large cities.In each issue attractions, shows, and natural areas are featured that I've never heard of before.Travel America is a great summary of interesting places to visit.Some of these places are obscure and some are common vacation spots, but this magazine introduces something new and different to do in all of them.I gave this magazine four stars because some of the articles seem a bit like advertisements for the tour company, hotel or attraction.There aren't really negative or objective reviews about any of the things mentioned in this magazine.If you're planning a vacation, especially a road trip, this is a great magazine to find attractions on the way to and at your final destination. ...
