Since 1973, Lonely Planet has become the world's leading travel media company. It produces guidebooks to every destination, an award-winning website, mobile and digital travel products and a dedicated traveller community. In the same adventurous spirit, it has now produced ‘Lonely Planet's Ultimate Travel: Our List of the 500 Best Places to See...Ranked’.
You can't beat a good list right? Lonely Planet knows it and Ultimate Travel is a beautiful hardback celebration of the best places to visit on the planet. A good travel debate is always interesting and not everyone will agree with the selections or the order they’ve been placed in. But Lonely Planet writers are among the foremost travel experts in the world and if they’ve ranked the destinations according to their knowledge and experience, the list certainly has credibility.
As the publishers explain in the introduction, the list wasn’t just random opinions. It was derived from many different opinions, votes and rankings. Ultimate Travel is the aggregated result of many lists and serves as the ultimate travel bucket list. It’s a debate starter, looks great on your coffee table but more than anything, it is fuel for your wanderlust. Pick a glossy, colourful page and let your imagination get the better of you.
So, from this compilation of the 500 most unmissable sights and attractions in the world, what will be number 1 you ask? Through the pages, it’s an intriguing battle between mega-sights such as the Taj Mahal and lesser-known hidden gems. This definitive wish list is packed with insightful write-ups and inspiring photography to get you motivated. Will their number 1 be your number 1 and what else will you add to your bucket list?
