Those who want to learn about the world's most luxurious train, the European Swamp Soccer Championships, and the spiciest foods on the planet, or find inspired ideas for adventure, like the Cricket World Cup in Mumbai or cooking school in Morocco will enjoy this solid guide. Printed on heavy paper with beautifully-reproduced color photos, it's a pleasure to hold, view, and read, and small enough to accompany readers on more mundane travels. Numerous Top 10 lists could provide readers with a travel agenda for years: top countries (including Albania, Panama, and Tanzania); top regions (Great Barrier Reef, Shetland Islands, Patagonia); top cities (New York City, Valencia, Chiang Mai); top travel (best value destinations, best underwater experiences, best secret islands); and more. Destinations are reviewed alongside photos and details including basic demographics, a cost index covering the prices of coffee and a hotel room, annual festivals and events, life-changing experiences, and random but highly-interesting facts. Beautiful to look at and fun to read, Lonely Planet's 2011 roundup is a must-own. (Nov.)
