Travel guru Arthur Fromm­er is out with a new book: Ask Arthur Frommer & Travel Better, Cheaper, Smarter. The book is nearly 500 pages long and is packed with tips and adv­ice on everything from how to find the best air­fares online to what’s good and bad about cruising.

Frommer makes many enthusiastic recommendations throughout the book, from individual websites such as go-today.com as a source for cheap, quick trips, and vacation options from China to the U.S.

But he also offers lessons he’s learned from years of travelling, saying that he now brings a half-empty suitcase, with as few clothes as possible; he tries to eat but one meal a day, a picnic-style feast with cheeses, meats and other specialty food purchased at local delicatessens and grocery stores; and he always buys travel insurance.

Frommer lists some of his favourite places around the world, with recommendations on what to see and do from Bali to the Baltics to Boston; and he even suggests a simple remedy for seasickness with no side effects — ginger. Accommodation recommendations from the book include monasteries and convents in Europe; hostels, even in New York City; apartment rentals; and other alternative lodging.

Frommer’s original Europe on 5 Dollars a Day, which started the Frommer series of budget travel guidebooks, was first published in 1957.
