Hey everyone! As usually, the Travelade team selects its favourite guides at the end of each month, which is such a delightful task.
In case you were wondering how exactly we choose these guides, I’m just going to go quickly over the criteria we base our selection on. Firstly, we look at the overall quality of the guide. If the topic is good and the recommendations are on point, you’re clearly doing something right.
The appearance also matters a lot and we do notice when Wanderguide creators have put some effort in selecting a nice cover-photo and a fitting header colour. Other factors like tone of voice, a good headline, the number of collections and originality are also something we value.
Note that the Wanderguides we select each month get featured on our global page! This means that if we pick your guide as one of the “Wanderguides of the month”, it will for sure result in more visits to your guide! How cool is that?
So without further ado – here are our favourite Wanderguides created in October:
This mouthwatering guide was an instant hit with the foodies on our team! Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) is a city well worthy of a visit and it’s a good hub for those who want to explore the south of Vietnam.
If you’re looking for a delicious treat in Saigon, we recommend that you ditch the (often unreliable) Tripadvisor reviews and rely on this guide instead, created by a local foodie in Saigon.
We are crazy about Eva Maria’s guide about New York! It literally has everything you need if you’re spending some time in the Big Apple. We are particularly excited about her restaurant recommendations, that range from Hawaiian and Japanese to Italian and French cuisine. Thanks a bunch Eva!
Ever thought of visiting the Hungarian countryside? After reading this stunning Wanderguide by Viktor Grasztity on the Káli-Medence region in Hungary, we’re completely sold. The Káli-Medence region is characterised by cute little towns, farms, vinyards and a relaxed countryside vibes but yet it’s still somewhat off the tourist radar.
The Wanderguide is called “The Ultimate Guide” to Káli-Medence which is quite fitting, since it’s indeed very comprehensive. You can find recommendations for six towns in the Káli-Medence as well as some cool stuff just outside the region. Thank you Viktor!
We really love Wanderguides that have a specific theme. This guide focuses on things to do with kids in Maui, which is of course extremely useful if you’re going on a family vacation on this beautiful Hawaiian island.
Thanks so much for sharing your amazing insights Erica!
Penang, Malaysia, is known for its tropical climate, low cost of living, good food and cultural diversity. While Penang has plenty of interesting museums and cultural sites, it also caters to the needs of the more adventurous traveler.
Check out Tristan’s awesome guide on Penang and you’ll soon find yourself booking a flight to Malaysia 💁🏽♀️
Tokyo can seem a bit overwhelming, especially when visiting for the first time. We bet that Jason G. Sturgill’s guide on Tokyo will be of much help to creative travelers that are looking for cool and somewhat off-the-beaten path spots in this magnificent city.
The guide has a lot of unconventional recommendations, the kind of tips you don’t see on regular Tokyo travel guides. It also has some ideas for hotels, shopping, dining and drinking. If you’re visiting Tokyo anytime soon you should make sure you have Jason’s guide handy!
