BUG New Zealand (third edition) is a brilliant travel guide for anyone backpacking around New Zealand. It concentrates on giving honest and detailed up-to-date information and more in-depth reviews of backpackers’ hostels and youth hostels than any other guidebook. The guide also has comprehensive information on activities, sights and budget travel options.
BUG Australia (third edition) concentrates on the information that independent budget travellers really need. The guide doesn’t include information on motels, hotels and five-star resorts, giving more space for really detailed reviews of more hostels than any other guidebook.
So whether you’re learning to surf in Byron Bay, sailing in the Whitsunday Islands or picking mangoes in Kununurra, the BUG Australia (third edition) guide is the book to take you there.
BUG Australia (4th edition) features:
in-depth reviews of virtually every hostel in each destination
BUG’s exclusive star rating system to help you find a great hostel at a glance
extensive background information on entry requirements, work visas and health cover
information on getting around Australia by air, bus, car, ferry, train and thumb
expanded coverage of the most popular destinations
detailed coverage of activites such as sailing, surfing and skydiving
Most travel guidebooks try to cater to everyone. They list fancy restaurants and posh resorts and also provide information on cheap hostels and everything in between. The problem with this is that you're left with a bulky guide that is full of mostly irrelevant information. Furthermore, most of the information you really need is left out to make room for more reviews of places you can't afford.
BUG is different. It is a guidebook just for backpackers -- young independent budget travellers just like yourself. You won't find any fancy hotels in a BUG guide, just backpackers' hostels and youth hostels, and lots of them. In fact, every single hostel that is open when the book is being researched is included in the BUG guide and the reviews are more detailed than you would find in competing guides.
With more detailed reviews of more hostels than any other guidebook, BUG really is the Backpackers' Ultimate Guide.
