Summary

If you're traveling the world - or if you just want to travel the world from your armchair - this audiobook will enlighten and amuse you. It could add a few unusual stops to your itinerary, as well.

We suggest some intriguing natural sights, such as the perfectly conical Chocolate Hills, Indian pilgrimage mountains topped by temples, whole forests of identikit crooked trees, and volcanoes inside volcanoes.

Perhaps festivals are more to your taste. Would you prefer the anarchic creativity of Burning Man, a Japanese cry-baby competition, or a massive food fight? We'll also tell you which major city still lets shepherds drive their flocks through the streets every autumn.

If you've ever wondered where you can see the most human skulls in one place, we have a whole section on macabre sights that will answer that question and many more. A slightly different take on the impermanence of human life comes with industrial tourism, from abandoned whaling stations to massive salt mines.

If you enjoy shopping on your travels, we have a whole section devoted to great markets and funfairs, including flea markets, souks, and even specialized markets where you can shop for Buddhist amulets. And we finish with a look at alternatives to the bucket list for travelers who want to avoid the crowds and explore somewhere a bit different.

Plus, because the internet (as everyone knows) is made of cats, we have the purrfect section on cat islands, cat cafes, cat temples and even a whole city called Cat.

Perhaps you're just too busy this year for that round-the-world trip. But this book could give you ideas…and deliver a lot of fun facts en route.

This book will uncover hidden gems you never knew existed! It takes travelling to a whole new level!

footstep next-in-line

"As a frustrated traveler, yes it is!my frustration on travelling and collecting souvenirs in different sides of the world. Of-course were not just collecting those little things from those places but to cherish the memories that the money could not buy in fact to spend it. I cannot figure it out every time i have new journey but really who knows about the best places to see puffins in Iceland, a weekend to spend in Rotterdam? Having things to do in split, in Croatia?, and the 6 typical Belgian foods and where to eat them in Brussels?.Amazing listening experience.

I love this travel book because it goes beyond

I love this travel book because it goes beyond just talking about destinations, it gives an "off the beaten path" look at events that may normally be overlooked by the tourist traveler.

I enjoy the chapters which gives you Alternatives

I enjoy the chapters which gives you Alternatives to some of the more famous tourist destinations. Don't want to deal with the crowds at the Taj Mahal? Try Sikandra which is the destination for India's courting couples.

Good ideas for unique travel

This was helpful when I knew I was going to be in one place in the world due to my job and where were the closest cool things to check out. This book has given me great ideas of where to go, what top global destinations are near each other. I have left the book out on my coffee table, open to my next travel destination. There are easy to read descriptions as well with fun details about the places. As for the book it gives some ideas for those who enjoy travel.

Love travel? Then get it!

I love the hardcover book and place it nicely next to their “the world” book on our coffee table. You’ll enjoy the break from reality and the trips across the world in your own living room! I was very satisfied when finished the book, and already made a short list for future trips. This book is great for getting ideas of trips to plan and what to do.

Really shows you that you can find beauty anywhere in the world! Excellent item, securely packed and promptly delivered. Always interesting travel advice. This book is great for getting ideas of trips to plan and what to do.

Stunning Travel book

Amazing book with so much information! - The descriptions of each destination are so well put together - maps, flags, time of year to go, etc . Just a great book! Worth every penny! After a long working day it is nice to sit down and go through each country, even bookmark those I want to visit in the future. Love it :) The book is impressive although it is not as informative as I wish.

Travel inspiration and visual record of my trips.

My goal is to visit all seven continents and as many countries as I can. When looking for ideas for my next vacation, I look at the book for inspiration. This is a book we’ll have in our home for years to come and we’re so happy with the purchase! This is a really great, substantial, quality book with a brief, relevant overview of every country in the world. Worth it if you are interested in travel or just want to travel the world thru listening.
