Global travel authority Lonely Planet has just released an all-new edition of its internationally bestselling landmark title, The Travel Book.
Featuring every country on Earth, Lonely Planet's definitive million-selling tome returns in a completely revitalised third edition, with comprehensively updated content - including more than 800 stunning new photographs - making it more inspiring, engaging and compelling than ever before.
First published in 2004, Lonely Planet's much-loved photographic journey through every country in the world has become known as the book every traveller should own and has already taken countless readers on a virtual and cultural tour of the planet.
To celebrate the new edition of this iconic title, Lonely Planet has also launched a dedicated landing page on the Lonely Planet website - http://www.lonelyplanet.com/travel-book - which showcases six stunning 360-degree videos that take viewers through an immersive, panoramic tour of the continents, as well as offering the chance to win the journey of a lifetime to one of six continents.
An odyssey that starts in Afghanistan, Lonely Planet's new edition of The Travel Book circumnavigates the globe from A to Z, ending with Zimbabwe, and visiting every country in between.
Devoting a double-page spread to each country, The Travel Book includes breathtaking new photography that creates a kaleidoscopic picture of the world in which we live, alongside insightful text covering the specifics of each country, including details on when to go, what to see, and how best to experience it.
Viewed through a traveller's lens, The Travel Book evokes the spirit of each place by appealing to the senses – what you might see and feel, which books, music or films will help you prepare for the experience, or what food and drink might flavour your visit. The Travel Book also includes details of events, objects and people that are central to each country's identity, as well as curious, little-known facts.
In addition to covering every country, The Travel Book also contains 11 further places of interest. These bonus destinations are not countries, but small dependencies that are great attractions in their own right.
This new edition of The Travel Book is guaranteed to inspire intrepid globetrotters and armchair travellers alike, and provides the information, insight and trivia needed to kick-start your travel planning.
