Travel Writing – Styles and How to Hook the Readers

To be successful as a travel writer, it is important that you understand the elements that make a travel piece.

To begin with, you need to understand that there are two ways to write a travel article. One way is to create it as a how-to guide or information journal – for travelers who want to visit a particular location – another is to narrate your travel experiences in the first person. While the guide only tells readers what they may or may not experience, a narrative is a story based on the writer’s experience – both the pleasant and the unpleasant ones.

In a narrative travel article, the travel writer takes the reader through his or her experiences and emotions throughout the journey, while in a how-to travel article he or she gives details on how to visit the place, what to see or do there, currency used, languages spoken etc that would help travelers in planning a tour.

If you are planning to do a narrative, the first and the most important thing to do is to keep a journal that can be used to note and recall the details of your journey. The second thing to consider is where the article will be published and who would be reading it. If you are writing it for your own blog, a narrative in your own style and language would do. But if you are writing the article for a travel magazine or website, you must make sure that the language, the style and tone are favorable with the audience who are going to read it.
