From the desert of Death Valley in California to the lagoons of Bora Bora in French Polynesia, from Niagara Falls on the US-Canadian border to Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwean-Zambian border, and from Norwegian fjords to the Lascaux cave paintings, Great Destinations of a Lifetime roams far and wide in selecting the most outstanding locations from around the world.
Including both natural and man-made wonders, the book features not only well-known attractions but also less explored places. Discover the Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia’s magnificent 10,582 sq km (4,086 sq miles) wide salt flats; marvel at the multicoloured Rainbow Mountain in Peru; explore Borobudur, a ninth century Buddhist temple in the Javanese jungle; and follow in the footsteps of mythical giants on Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway.
Each location is accompanied by a caption explaining the geographical and historical background of the place. Illustrated with 180 colour photographs, Great Destinations of a Lifetime ranges from the Namib Desert to New Zealand’s glaciers, from ancient structures to the spectacular Grand Canyon. A feast of colour, unusual geography and fascinating history, this is the book that will define your bucket list of destinations.
