I'm so glad a store like this is still in business. They have travel books and gear, but what's really great about this place is the live events it holds. Book signings, talks about exotic destinations, and travel gurus giving advice.

Don't let the display windows fool you. This is NOT just a bookstore. Venture in and take a look around...you'll find safety items, bags, clothes, maps...all kinds of things that you will need when traveling...and actually, a TON of things you won't need...but will surely want.

The travel bookstore takes up about half to a third of the store. The rest is packed with anything you might want for your travel needs: clothing, luggage, accessories and nic-nacs. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable.

Love this travel store! From the floor to ceiling bookshelves that are filled with travel books to waterproof journals to the best selection of backpacks, anybody who loves to travel should pop into this store at least once. They have probably one of the most extensive collection of travel books I have come across - you can find a book on almost any place on the world map. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

This is a great place for all of your travel needs. They have everything, not just books.
The staff seems pretty knowledgable which helps when you need advice.
A little pricey though. I guess because they don't have much competition.
Located on the outer reaches of Old Town across from the Green Street Hotel.

Excellent travel store, with guidebooks on every conceivable place, language aids from Albanian to Zulu, travel gear and a travel agency. Plus they have occasional lectures by travel experts, with ample opportunity to ask your own questions.
