Lonely Planet’s New App Helps You Explore Major Cities Like a Pro

Posted February 2nd 2016


Packing your bags for an exciting new destination? You’ll want to load up Lonely Planet’s new free Guides app on your iOS or Android device before you go.

The all-new app bundles maps, recommendations and budget guides for several major cities around the world, and lets you download city guides for use without a data connection — handy for when you don’t yet have a local SIM card. Once you download a city guide, you’ll find an overview, a currency converter and a simple budget explaining what you can look forward to based on your planned daily spend. Each city also has a map marked with attractions, restaurants and bars, accommodation options and shopping destinations as well as performance venues and fun activities.
