Introduction

We only get one life so we owe it to ourselves to see as much of this beautiful world as possible. For many of us, lying on a beach for two weeks each year is just not enough any more. We want to see ancient monuments, extraordinary scenery, endangered wildlife, foreign cultures, architecture and art -- places that give us the chance to grow and expand our horizons. Unforgettable Places will help you search out some of these essential destinations and experiences.

Steve Davey, Steve Watkins, Marc Schlossman and Clare Jones drew on their years of experience as international travel writers and photographers in selecting their favourite places, journeys and activities for the acclaimed Unforgettable books. And the very best are featured in this inspirational compilation. Some, such as the famous Taj Mahal in India and Gaudí's astonishing architecture in Barcelona, are relatively well-known, but many others, such as the remote island of Rapa Nui in the south-east Pacific and Bolivia's Uyuni Salt Flats, are very much off the beaten track. Some, such as the Florida Keys and Italy's beautiful Amalfi Coast, can be reached in relative comfort, whilst others present more of a challenge -- tracking mountain gorillas in the foothills of a Rwandan volcano, for example, or trekking for nine days at altitude to see the stunning Himalayan scenery around Makalu in Nepal. Whatever your interests, tastes and abilities, there is something here for everyone.

Although you'll find plenty of tips for travellers, this is not a travel guide, and it's certainly not definitive, but it will introduce you to a host of spectacular locations, all of which can be visited within the space of a two week break. (The map on pages 600-1 shows the locations of all the places featured.) Illustrated throughout with specially commissioned photographs, this is a book that will inspire you to think beyond the walls of your room and take that trip of a lifetime.
