  • Conde Nast Traveler It's All High End Ads with Little Substance as a Magazine

    Nov 20, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some good articles and fine contributors.
    Cons: Much too many ads. Poor photography as compared to the ads.

    Summary: Perhaps I'm an anti-cosmopolitan snob but this low maintenance dude doesn't care for this is highly-polished, slick magazine with glossy pages and enough adds that make me believe that I'm the only dude without the stash to even place a deposit on any ... read more

  • Hostlink International, Napier, New Zealand

    Mar 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Off Topic Review
    Pros: The most efficient and charming way to see New Zealand
    Cons: None that we can think of . . .

    Summary: In this post 9/11 era, one can hardly imagine a better place to travel than New Zealand. Not only is it a spectacularly beautiful country, but the people may be the friendliest on the planet. For us, itís especially convenient that they speak English ... read more

  • Conde Nast Traveler . . . Shockingly little information about travel!

    Aug 14, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low cost subscription; 12 issues per year; some inspirational photos.
    Cons: Very little travel information, almost no affordable travel information.

    Summary: I got Conde Nast Traveler as a free subscription. So far, I have received 4 issues and I am still waiting for a travel article, or even perhaps just a teeny tidbit of information, that I could find useful. Most of the articles that actually talk about d ... read more

  • Travel through a magazine...Conde Nast Traveler

    Jan 27, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: intriguing articles and places to visit, large magazine, subscription price
    Cons: large amount of advertising, issue price

    Summary: Considering that I refuse to buy magazines, I always end up with a lot of them to read. One of my co-workers subscribes to at least fifteen magazines and is always bringing them to work when she is done with them. Not reading them at work, mind you, if ... read more

  • Conde Nast Traveler Magazine.....A Guide to Great Shopping on Secluded Islands

    Jun 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some very informative sections like the Ombudsman, the Perrin Report et al....Colorful
    Cons: Far too much emphasis on fashion photo shoots, advertising, and islands

    Summary: I have been getting the Conde Nast Traveler for several years now. It is well worth the twelve dollars a year it costs me. Get the subscription, as it's certainly not worth the $4.50 cover price. Also, do not be confused here. The Conde ... read more

    Nov 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many well-written, world-encompassing travel articles, unique/fun/informative sections such as Ombudsman, isolated incidents of terrific photography...
    Cons: Endless Top 100 lists, overwhelming luxury product advertisements, dedicated to travel or fashion/fantasy articles?

    Summary: I've subscribed to this magazine for several years. Initially, I was attracted by terrific, fun articles from "exotic" locations. Increasingly, I've become very disillusioned with the numerous lists of Top 100 hotels, resorts, etc., etc. Most ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A dreamers magazine, always listing the best and most expensive.
    Cons: Not practical for most travelers.

    Summary: We got the Conde Nast Traveler at a special price but did not resubscribe. It's flashy but dull, featuring beautiful young ladies in exotic locations. None of these expensive hotels, restaurants, etc., even sounded interesting or fun. The ... read more

  • From the Armchairs of Babylon

    Jan 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: photography, good articles
    Cons: a little text heavy

    Summary: I wish I had more time to travel. Unlike my monniker (modern gypsy), I'm pretty much a stay-at-home, daytrip-a-lot kind of chickadee. That doesn't mean I don't have a lust for it, and I have to say, Conde Nast Traveler magazine gives ... read more

  • The Trouble With Traveler

    Sep 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good for fantasy vacations only
    Cons: Poor for use by real people for travel planning

    Summary: I've been a subscriber to this magazine for years, and frankly, I don't know why. Conde Nast Traveler actually has the gall to bill itself on the cover as "Truth In Travel" and says that they do not accept free travel and they ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: glossy creative and fun
    Cons: what normal person can afford this.

    Summary: There are very few magazines on the market to which I would subscribe. This is one of them. Each issue is fodder for a fantasy world of luxurious beaches, snow capped mountains, or exotic lands. The photography is brilliant and the writing ... read more
