T
he 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“tells 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 likeLebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. Thereis an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano and Ravello, but thefull 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast; Chichen Itza and Tulum are now treatedas one, La Ruta Maya.Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed and made fuller, withmore suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. Andthroughout, the book is more budget-conscious, recommending not only the Ritz, butalso 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 the1,000-plus pages entirely user-friendly, no matter if you’re dreaming or going.The world is calling. Time to answer.
