Structured data type for informational articles

Doesn't really fit BlogPosting or NewsArticle

I'm adding AMP pages to some of my sites. Mostly about places / travel /tourism.
As mentioned in the title these don't really fall into the BlogPosting or NewsArticle type. So what would you suggest using in the schema declaration, i.e:
<script type="application/ld+json">
"@context": "http://schema.org",
"@type": "NewsArticle"...


And what if the page is about a specific place, e.g. a beach. Would that be considered an article or a place?

Thanks.

Is there anything AMP specfic about this? Looks like just schema.org

You could just use Article (the parent of NewsArticle and ancestor of BlogPosting) or WebPage

I wonder whether schema.org adds any real value here though?

You're right, not really AMP specific. Just the Webmaster dashboard was complaining about "Info: Missing structured data element" for my AMP pages.
Haven't had to use schema markup before...
