Summary

'¬˘ 200 new entries '¬˘ 28 new countries '¬˘ 500 color photographs '¬˘ Completely revised and updated The world'¬"s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more  budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller that stayed on the list for 185 weeks, 1,000 Places has over 3 million copies in print. It reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it '¬Stells you what'¬"s beautiful, what'¬"s fun, and what'¬"s just unforgettable'¬ ;everywhere on earth.'¬ And now the best is better. There are more than 500 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano and Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast; Chichen Itza and Tulum are now treated as one, La Ruta Maya. Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, recommending not only the Ritz, but also moderately priced gems that don'¬"t compromise on atmosphere or charm. Following the romance, comes the nuts and bolts: web addresses, phone numbers, costs, best times to visit. Of special interest are subject-specific indexes, making the 1,000-plus pages entirely user-friendly, no matter if you'¬"re dreaming or going. The world is calling. Time to answer.
