    Yeh just read about Lisbon. My frank observations: May like to consider giving about Airport name then distance from Airport to city. Hotel details as also name of reasonable accommodation and telephone etc. Where travelers would like to stay name the place. Then about transportation how best one can reach his place of stay. What a tourists should take care in terms of one safety etc. Best suitable time to visit Lisbon. Range of air travel cost if feasible to give from main cities and name of preferred airlines. Reaching at night / late evening is ok or not.Possibility of any city conducted tours name the agency / cost / time it takes etc.
    Food where one can have good food at reasonable cost etc.
    Climate details month wise.
    Place of interest which are must for any tourist. Admission fee for each place of interest then facility of local guide its cost.
    Little editing is needed that takes time for you.
    Will continue but most of the things I have done. Will see.
    Very informative otherwise. Thanks.
