The Radar – the best of the travel blogosphere – is a regular feature on Intelligent Travel every Wednesday.
Here’s this week’s:
- The markets of Marrakech beam with color, tradition, and taste, but they can be overwhelming. Check out these tips on how to cope with the chaos and really revel in Morocco’s rich commercial culture. @bruisedpassport
- “Tramping” (hiking over rough terrain) is one of the most popular activities in Queenstown, New Zealand. Tag along with these bloggers as they sound off on the top five tramping tracks in this South Island lake district. @wanderlustersuk
- The Zollverein Coal Mine was the heartbeat of Essen for more than 150 years. See the footprints left behind by this once-essential industry — and the avant-garde approach that’s gone into making this German town a living history lesson for future generations. @TammyOnTheMove
- Little Italy might not be the place to go for the best Italian food in New York City, but this “strange intercultural zone in Lower Manhattan” still has an interesting story to tell — and some darn good Chinese cuisine to boot. @GlbetrotterGrls
- Biking alongside dangerous wildlife isn’t on everyone’s agenda — even if you get to see the landscapes that inspired The Lion King en route. If you’d rather experience it vicariously, ride along with these bloggers through Hell’s Gate National Park in Kenya. @FourJandals
