Top Customer Reviews
So now, when I rattle off recommendations, I also recommend this book. I personally use this book to discover lesser known gems in countries I plan trips to. But it is also useful for novice travelers to discover what the world offers. I purchased a copy of this book for my younger brother who graduated college and wanted to go on a longer term travel adventure but didn't know where he should go. He pored over the book and discovered many places he had never heard of and was able to piece together a rough itinerary.
It's also just a wonderful coffee table book: beautiful photography and a great conversation starter.
There is just a paragraph or so on each place. Just enough to give a quick summary which means you don't have to read through a bunch of stuff you don't want to to find the places your interested in. Definitely need to have you internet close by to dig deeper into the places that seem interesting.
If you are looking for interesting places to visit around the world but not sure where to go next then give this a try.
As for the construction of the book itself, it's a hardcover book, with a very nice weight. I can definitely see this withstanding the ages.
