Win this fabulous prize in our great Marco Polo competition!

3rd December 2017

Marco Polo competitionThanks to our lovely and generous friends at Marco Polo Travel Guides and Travel Information, we are offering you a fabulous prize in our competition this month. The company, incidentally, is named after the famous explorer, Marco Polo. He was most likely born in Venice in 1254, and at the age of 17 accompanied his father on a 17 year journey to China. An amazing (and dangerous) adventure!

The prize consists of three parts:

*A Fujifilm instax mini 9 instant camera. The very latest in Japanese technology. You take a picture and seconds later you are holding a top quality print in your hand! The camera has built in flash, auto exposure control, a ‘selfie mirror’, and a close up lens attachment. It retails for up to £74.

*A copy of Marco Polo’s ‘The World’. This is a fold out map of the world featuring flags and country information, an overview of world languages, a time zone map, and a distance table. Everything you need to become an instant expert!

*A ‘Perfect Days in…’ Spiral Guide for a destination of your choice. Full of really useful Insider Tips… The ideal way to plan your trip to make sure you miss nothing. Also contains a pull out map. Choose the destination you want from the Spiral Guide section of the Marco Polo site.

To win this amazing prize, all you have to do is mail us at [email protected] with the answer to this simple question:

‘In which city was Marco Polo most likely born?’

Plus, also let us know the destination you would choose for you ‘Perfect Days in…’ guide if you are the lucky winner.

The competition is open to international visitors to the TripFiction site, as well as to UK visitors. It closes at midnight UK time on Saturday 16th December.

The very best of luck!

The TripFiction team
