You download each city you want. I got off at the wrong station in Berlin without knowing, walked outside and to the closest intersection, and found the street names. I search those in that app, figured where I was, and which direction I needed to walk. I was at my hostel 20 minutes later. I have several other stories like that. An offline map was a life saver!
CityMaps 2Go Android iOS
Shows little paths that a lot of other maps don't, helped me quite a bit on holidays while exploring and didn't really know the area that well.
I just found out about CityMaps2go from another reddit thread. Seems promising. There's also the TripAdvisor apps. Unfortunately, I don't use either so I can't give any sort of review of them.
Make sure your language apps use traditional Chinese, else you'll be learning the wrong set of characters. The Google Translate app can be used offline as can the Pleco Chinese dictionary. I totally recommend these.
Write out what you want translated in Pleco as it doesn't give a time limit in writing characters so you can try to figure them out before it auto-guesses for you, and then copy-paste to Google translate. Google translate isn't perfect but it's close enough.
On mobile so I apologize for any formatting errors.
City Maps 2Go. Be sure to download the maps on WiFi before going offline. I used this app to map all the key sightseeing points before going out. Very handy.
Well Bruges is an expensive city, because of all the tourism. But.. I was just walking around in Bruges, going to all the wonderful locations and asked a handful of lads about a good, but cheap restaurant in Bruges. Pretty much everyone (i'm not joking lol) said "Ribs 'n Beer".
They've got an all you can eat rib menu for €18. You get a beer with it for €19 on Mondays!
Trust me, that's absolutely worth it if you like ribs. I am not a rib guy much myself, but.. well that changed that night.
They've got 4 different sauces. One of them being extremely insane, but surprisingly awesome. It's their homemade sauce and you will love it I am sure of it.
Must make a reservation a few days before hand. Especially in the weekend!
My day in Bruges with my teddy :)
My day in Ghent with my companion!
I noticed that I've mostly shown off my teddy, well deal with it! xD
The hostel that I stayed in was near this castle. De Dreacke, depending on the amount of people that you are with, they've got 2/4 private rooms that are more than good enough for just sleeping. Breakfast was basic, but good enough to start the day.
The Gentse waterzooi that I had was in a lovely, but fairly busy restaurant. It's called Amadeus Gent 1 which is hidden a little bit. It wasn't too expensive either. Of course, Belgium isn't a very cheap country. But I was alright on my budget. Expect to spend about €25/30 per person in most restaurants.
I didn't have their ribs, as I took those in Bruge and I can only recommend the waterzooi which was sublime!
Lastly, not sure if you travel often but I can highly recommend to download this handy offline map app. CityMaps2GO (android) & iOS. It doesn't got a navigation in it, but.. it shows you (stand still for this) the location you're pointing your phone towards so you can mostly easily find whatever you want to go to.
You can download a lot of cities all over the world and it will have many restaurants, museums, ho(s)tels & activities on it that you can mark and save. If it's not marked, you can create your own location and name it accordingly.
That way you can very easily mark all the things you want to do and find them without too much hassle.
Edit: should add, these are my "EDC-style" apps. I obviously have games, social media, Google apps etc also.
You could try CityMaps2Go
Yes, this with CityMaps2Go got me everywhere in Japan.
I second this.
Also City Maps 2Go Offline Maps (Android/iOS) is a good one.
If you use a phone try the following apps.
Try both at home and see what you like best. You could also try google maps
City Maps to Go should work OK for what you want.
[link] on my smartphone I'm using "City Maps 2Go" which uses OpenStreetMap and makes maps offline accessible but it's not open source:
