I'm looking for some tourist (not driving) maps of major cities, specifically Singapore, Cape Town, and London. I'd like them to highlight major attractions and show public transit routes, but mostly they have to be easy to read (for old eyes :shrug: )

The maps in most guidebooks are illegible to me, especially those in ebooks.

Any recommendations?

I suggest buying individual city maps from Amazon or a brick'n motar store.
I prefer the laminated kind that can take abuse and weather.

Alternatively, the thin, pocket-sized Michelin city guides have fairly decent
neighborhood-tour maps

I've been looking on amazon, but I can't tell how easy-to-read the maps they sell are. The brick and mortar stores in my little town don't carry much in the way of foreign city maps. But I will check the local bookstore to see if they have anything that might give me an idea of which publishers print the kind of maps I need.

Are the maps in the Michelin city guides easy-to-read ?

I always get Insight Fleximap of the cities we are planning to visit. If Fleximap isn't available then the next choice is Streetwise. I like Fleximap lot better. Usually I get them from Amazon.com.

I'm investigating Insight Fleximap. I've noticed that they aren't printed every year. Have you all noticed any problems with those that are several years old?

Would I be better off with an old Insight Fleximap or a newer map from a different publisher?
