Travel Genre – What’s the best definition for the travel genre? Books in the travel nonfiction genre are about places and destinations one might want to visit during their travels. The books in this genre can be about the history of places (cities, countries, and out of the way haunts), the desirable sights to see in those places, and the cultures, foods, and people of those places. They can also be about one’s travels and experiences as they travel the world, or humorous stories of family vacations.
