CIA World Factbook

I think a lot of us know that the CIA World Factbook is a great place to turn for basic facts, maps, and images of countries around the world. But…did you know that it is also a source of information for travelers? Search for any country and one of your choices in the results is “Travel Facts.” Clicking on this provides a wealth of information from State Department travel recommendations and visa requirements to types of outlets used and tourist destinations. The printable PDF also supplies links to other sites such as the World Health Organization that may be useful. Happy travels!
