Greater Than a Tourist – The Garden Route Western Cape Province South Africa: 50 Travel Tips from a Local by Li-Anne McGregor van Aardt is an insightful book for all those readers who are planning their next trip and want to get guidance from a local. The author throws light on the Garden Route situated in the Western Cape, South Africa and gives advice on how to travel like a local and get to know the culture and people of the place they are visiting. The book encourages readers and travelers to experience different places by taking advice from locals living there. The author’s experiences and stories about living in the Garden Route give a personal touch to this book and will make travelers keen on seeing more locations.

I personally feel that traveling is an education in itself and nothing else can broaden one’s perspective about life and living the way traveling to new destinations does. The author speaks about the vistas, the natural fauna and flora kingdom of the Western Cape. The book is filled with adventure, excitement, discovery, and fun that will make readers want to pack their bags and travel to new places. The book also speaks about the rich tapestry of cultures, traditions, and amalgamation of heritages in South Africa. It is definitely a wonderful book for all those who are interested in traveling, discovering new destinations, and learning about faraway places. By the time this book is finished, readers will have decided on their next travel destination. Most travel books will give you tips that help you travel like a tourist, but what makes this book special is that it will help you travel like a local and discover things and see places which are not listed in tourist guides.
