Editor’s Note

“The Definitive List...”

This comprehensive travel book is an aspirational to-do list, unique destinations accompanied by important information to create experiences, not just trips.
Scribd Editor
The 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, 1,000 Places 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 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast.

Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz,but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm.

The world is calling. Time to answer.

A nice list to browse and get ideas. However, the restaurants and hotels are very pricey and not that unique. Far too many resorts, for I don't want to go to any of them before I die--Disney is enough. Give me historical off the beaten path burgs with bed and breakfasts!more
The one that started it all. Yes, right now there are scores about books around that list just about any place, train journey, island, golf course, late night diner you have to see before you die, but this is the mother of it all and as such has my full respects even though some of the books that followed it have actually done a better job. This is a very handy compilation of places to visit. So when you're going somewhere just for a day or two there really is little need to purchase yet another guide book, but just have a quick look into this book for some inspiration and then follow your instincts for the rest of the time.Yes, list books are by its very nature subjective, so I am not going to argue as to what else should have been included, but I do feel that the emphasis here is far too much on hotel and restaurant experience. Still a great book to have around.more
Fun to rifle through and dream of travel. The biggest drawback to the book is that it's so US-centric. I know there was a follow-up book on places in the US and Canada, so a lot of these should have been reserved for that volume, giving more focus to other countries for this one. While I am a foodie and definitely interested in restaurants, that's not really what I thought should be included in this book. I would love to see separate volumes for restaurants/resorts, as they're not really what I would consider a "place to see".more

This is the kind of book that inspires you to travel more, see more of the world we live in. At the very least it's a book of dreams - one you can pick up at any time (it's packed full and huge) and find something new.more
This book tended to focus a lot on resorts and hotels. While I appreciate the greatness of luxury, I am more interested in seeing things a country has to offer, not what type of view I can get from my hotel room. For being what it is, it was a good, brief intro to certain countries and a good starting book to peak interest into a region.more
