Do as much research as you want on a vacation destination before you get there, but you’ll still probably find yourself at a crossroads trying to figure out where to go, what to do or what to see. That’s why travel guides have long existed, albeit in less-than-savory paper form and often with outdated information.

Enter Lonely Planet, which can be looked at as the Zagat of travel. They’ve just released an Android app that offers up 36 of their free travel guides for easy access on the go. Here’s a list of all the places you’ll be able to read about and consider for vacationing in the app:

  • Amsterdam
  • Bangkok
  • Barcelona
  • Beijing
  • Berlin
  • Boston
  • Budapest
  • Buenos Aires
  • Cape Town
  • Chicago
  • Dubai
  • Dublin
  • Hong Kong
  • Istanbul
  • Kyoto
  • London
  • Madrid

Lonely Planet has been around for quite some time, with a crack team of travelers curating guides city by city to show you the best restaurants, shopping, night-life, sight-seeing and play destinations in the area.

You can filter activities by type, bookmark places for viewing later, and you’ll be able to utilize fully offline maps in case you ever lose connection. One last bonus: the app is nicely designed from the ground up with a large helping of Material Design throughout. There are always extra brownie points for that. Find the download at Google Play right now and give it a go!
