"Buy a Good Travel Guidebook" Buenos Aires Packing List Tip by Bwana_Brown
Buenos Aires What to Pack: 33 reviews and 25 photos
Miscellaneous: Before you go on a major trip, I find that it is essential to invest in a good travel guide book. In my case, I really did not have much detailed knowledge of Argentina so I knew that I was going to have to do some serious research to figure out where to go and what to do during our Argentinian trip.
Although I actually prefer the 'DK Eyewitness' series of guides because of their colour photos and tips, they do not do a guide for Argentina as far as I could determine. Consequently, I ended up paying about US$32 (with tax) for the April, 2002 edition of the Lonely Planet guide to 'Argentina, Uruguay & Paraguay'.
This 744-page book, almost entirely in black and white except for a map or two and a few photos, is packed full of useful information. It told me about the Visa requirements and lot's of local customs (like 'empanadas' in my Restaurant tips, for instance). I have no regrets for having bought it and I don't think you will either!
