Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've bought every edition of this book for the last 5 years. (It was previously titled "Lonely Planet Bluelist.") It's great for people who are well-traveled, adventurous and always looking for someplace new to go. If you are the type of traveler that only likes to sit on a beach at a fenced-in, all-inclusive resort and eat American food at the buffet, then Lonely Planet books are not for you. However, if you are ready to get out there and truly experience other cultures, start with this book.

Format: Paperback
With travel season ramping up for summer, the folks at Lonely Planet travel guides are offering a free ebook compendium called "The Best in Travel: 2011' via the iTunes music store. The book, which covers destinations as far afield as Panama, Japan, Vanuatu and Tanzania, includes the normal stats along side a unique view of each destination tagged with titles like the Defining Experience, Most Bizarre Sight and Recent Fads.

Categories include countries, regions and cities, but the best is saved for last, where the LP editors have included such random lists as the Greatest Comeback Cities, Top 10 Countries That Didn't Exist 20 Years Ago, the 10 Best Things to do in 2011 and even the Best Vampire Spotting Locales. The 212 page eBook is not merely a comprehensive guide to earth travel, but one that is based significantly on chronology and recent developments making it a valuable resource for attempting to truly be at the right place at the right time. Speaking of time, the book is available for free download from now til June 14th.
