Stunning color photos, vivid descriptions, and enlightening maps tell readers what they want to know before they travel to romantic destinations around the world. In this brand-new edition of a perennial Barron's best-seller, approximately 50 dream locations--from the towering cliffs of Yosemite National Park to elegant and exotic cities like Kyoto and Prague--are pictured and described with sidebar information on climate, currencies, best seasons for visiting, and local dining delights. This lavishly produced guide in its revised and updated edition blends solid information with brand-new color photos and scenic atmosphere in a way that will please both active and armchair travelers. The New Traveler's Atlas offers inspiration for travel planning, pointing out the special qualities that make each of its chosen destinations unique--whether for their sheer physical beauty, their evocation of past civilizations, or their current culture and lively traditions. Sites of special interest to travelers that have been added to this brand-new edition include:
A digest of the worldÂ’s greatest travel destinations to help you decide where to go next
Continent-by-continent guide to the worldÂ’s most spectacular sights, both physical and man-made, from the Great African Rift Valley and the Grand Canyon to the lost Inca cities of South America and the wonderful wildlife of the Galapagos Islands
Must-see points of interest and when to see them at their best
Get-up-and-go inspiration for the independent traveler
Tips for avoiding the crowds
Incisive information on local geography
This is a book to help you realize your dreamsÂ—of trekking through the worldÂ‘s highest mountains, discovering for yourself a lost Inca city, swimming among coral reefs, or experiencing the color and excitement of different cultures and traditions. Its insights into the worldÂ’s most spectacular and charismatic places will give you unbearably itchy feet, an irresistible urge to travel, and the incentive to get up and go.
These are the destinations you have always dreamed of but, overwhelmed by choice and indecision, have never quite managed to visit. The New TravelerÂ‘s Atlas provides the inspiration and the information to help you plan the rest of your traveling life: draw up an action list for all the trips to come, plot them in order of priority, and discover the best time to visit each place.
Each chapter focuses on a destination and describes the special qualities that make it a must-see experienceÂ—whether for its sheer physical beauty or grandeur, its extraordinary wildlife, or its evocation of past civilizations and living cultures and traditions.
The New TravelerÂ’s Atlas takes you around the world by way of its text and illustrations, which saves you transferring the entire contents of the local travel bureau to your living room floor. It is not selling you a tour or vacation, but presenting an impartial and superbly inspirational digest of the best our planet offers, giving you the facts you need to help you decide where to go. Maps set the places in contextÂ... stunning photographs provide a tasteÂ—for nothing can compare with the realityÂ—of what is thereÂ... and the authors bring their own first-hand travel experiences and enthusiasms to the destinations they describe to help you choose the place that suits your schedule, your mood, and your dreams.
