Get the 2010 World Cup Fan Guide
Thursday 10, June 2010
Download the 2010 Fifa World Cup Organising Committee's comprehensive 92-page guide to the tournament, packed with information on stadiums, host cities, fan parks and much more.
There's useful information on everyday matters such as banking and food, as well as tips on safety and staying healthy. The guide also has advice on transport – road, rail and air – as well as accommodation and communication.
The section on stadiums is particularly useful, with maps showing how to get to each stadium, where to buy tickets, the nearest airport and transport nodes, as well as detailed layout plans of all of the stadiums indicating gates and seating. Also provided are rules on stadium conduct and items prohibited in the stadiums.
The handbook also outlines the history of South Africa, and has a nifty guide to South African slang.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
The hotel price comparison site www.trivago.co.uk has put together a list of the fifteen most spectacular hotel rooftop terraces in the world.
