Introducing the Eighth Wonder of travel books, the "New York Times" bestseller that's been hailed by CBS-TV as one of the best books of the year and praised by "Newsweek" as the "book that tells you what's beautiful, what's inspiring, what's fun and what's just unforgettable everywhere on earth." Packed with recommendations of the world's best places to visit, on and off the beaten path, 1,000 PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE is a joyous, passionate gift for travelers, an around-the-world, continent-by-continent listing of beaches, museums, monuments, islands, inns, restaurants, mountains, and more. There's Botswana's Okavango Delta, the covered souks of Aleppo, the Tuscan hills surrounding San Gimignano, Canyon de Chelly, the Hassler hotel in Rome, Ipanema Beach, the backwaters of Kerala, Oaxaca's Saturday market, the Buddhas of Borobudur, Ballybunion golf club-all the places guaranteed to give you the shivers. The prose is gorgeous, seizing on exactly what makes each entry worthy of inclusion. And, following the romance, the nuts and bolts: addresses, phone and fax numbers, web sites, costs, and best times to visit.

Makes you want to head for the airport.
Bought as a retirement present for my brother who is already making travel plans. Lots of places and things which were new to me. Easy read.

This was a gift for a friend and she loved it. I think she is planning another trip. It is a fun book because you can just open it anywhere and read.

Although I have not read this book from cover to cover I can still say it's a good book. This is world traveling from a different perspective. The book highlights some places that I've never seen or heard of.
