Summary

Summary

Here in one big, handsome volume are more than 60 famous and fascinating places that every world traveler must see. From the dramatic fjiords of Norway to the ancient remains of the mysterious Inca city of Machu Pichu, the authors guide readers along highways and rough trails to the world's most spectacular places. It's a bonanza of inspiration and ideas for adventurous travelers on where to go next and how to get there--but the book's detailed maps and vivid full-color photographs make it nearly as much fun for the armchair traveler! Maps are matched with location shots, and points of major interest are listed with tips on best travel routes, background information, and the best ways to avoid crowds. It also contains a worldwide directory of national tourist organizations, embassies, and many other addresses to help world travelers get the most out of their adventures. Includes more than 300 photos plus 50 maps.
