Library Journal Review

This tenth edition of Lonely Planet's Best in Travel, with its beautiful color photographs and enthusiastic commentary, continues to offer inspiration to the neophyte traveler looking to find new destinations. From the more traditional (Ireland, London, Vienna) to the less visited (Nepal, Namibia, Tasmania), the guide provides a brief paragraph on the location along with a couple of highlighted tourist spots. The occasional restaurant or website is listed, but practical information is generally lacking. The "Top Travel Lists" include the best places to propose, have coffee, and fish, but much of it, in particular the section on the world's best toilets (The Royal Wee includes the international space station) feels like filler. Despite its compact size, this is not a book to pack since the scope is broad and the information superficial. Once travelers have picked a destination they'll want to find the appropriate Lonely Planet, Fodor's, or Eyewitness country guide. Verdict An annual subscription to a glossy travel magazine will provide much the same inspiration, along with similar lovely photographs and much more practical information, for the same price.-Linda M.
