Great Destinations of a Lifetime (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


From the desert of Death Valley in California to the lagoons around Bora Bora in French Polynesia, from Niagara Falls on the US-Canadian border to Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwean-Zambian border, and from Norwegian fjords to the Lascaux cave paintings, Great Destinations roams far and wide in selecting the most outstanding accessible locations around the world.

Including both natural and man-made wonders, the book features not only well-known attractions but also less explored places. Discover the Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia's magnificent 10,582 sq km (4,086 sq miles) wide salt flats; marvel at the multicoloured Rainbow Mountain in Peru; explore Borobudur, a ninth century Buddhist temple in the Javanese jungle; and follow in the footsteps of mythical giants on Ireland's Giant's Causeway.

Each location is accompanied by a caption explaining the geographical and historical background of the place. Illustrated with 180 colour photographs, Great Destinations of a Lifetime ranges from the Namib Desert to New Zealand's glaciers, from ancient structures to the spectacular Grand Canyon. A feast of colour, unusual geography and fascinating history, this is the book that will define your bucket list of destinations.
