This is a book to help you realise your dreams – of
trekking through the world’s highest mountains,
discovering for yourself a lost Inca city, swimming
among coral reefs, or experiencing the colour and
excitement of different cultures and traditions. Its
insights into the world’s most spectacular and
charismatic places will give you unbearably itchy
feet, an irresistible urge to travel and the incentive to
get up and go.
These are the destinations you have always
dreamed of but, overwhelmed by choice and
indecision, have never quite managed to visit.
The New Traveller’s Atlas provides the inspiration
and the information to help you plan the rest of your
travelling life: draw up an action list for all the trips
to come, plot them in order of priority and discover
the best time to visit each place.
Each chapter focuses on a destination and
describes the special qualities that make it
a must-see experience – whether for its sheer
physical beauty or grandeur, its extraordinary wildlife
or its evocation of past civilizations and living
cultures and traditions.
The New Traveller’s Atlas takes you around the
world by way of its text and illustrations, which
saves you transferring the entire contents of the
local travel bureau to your living room floor. It is
not selling you a tour or holiday, but presenting
an impartial and superbly inspirational digest of
the best our planet offers, giving you the facts you
need to help you decide where to go. Maps set the
places in context, stunning photographs provide a
taste – for nothing can compare with the reality – of
what is there, and the authors bring their own
first -hand travel experiences and enthusiasms to
the destinations they describe to help you choose
the place that suits your schedule, your mood
and your dreams.
