Publisher Comments:

Introducing the Eighth Wonder of travel books. A joyous, passionate gift book for travelers — both the real and the armchair variety — 1,000 Places to See Before You Die delivers exactly the promise of its around-the-world, continent-by-continent listing of places guaranteed to give you shivers, the unique and wonderful places you must see on and off the beaten track.

Take a safari into Botswana's Okavango Delta, the world's largest oasis, where "if you see 10 percent of what sees you, it's an exceptional day." Sail the Grenadines, 32 islands and hundreds of dotlike cays strung like a necklace of gems across 40 miles of pristine waters. Tour the covered souks of Aleppo, where the labyrinthine streets seem straight out of A Thousand and One Nights and frankincense and myrhh are still sold. Hike the Tasman Glacier. Climb the Tuscan hills to San Gimignano. Stay at the Hassler in Rome, or Paris's Crillon — you must, at least once. There's Canyon de Chelly, Tokyo's Tsukiji Fish Market, the backwaters of Kerala, Ipanema beach, the Buddhas of Borobudur, Mesa Verde's cave dwellings, the Oaxaca Saturday market, Ballybunion Golf Club.

The prose is gorgeous, seizing on exactly what makes each entry worthy of inclusion. And, following the romance, the nuts and bolts: addresses, phone and fax numbers, web sites, costs, best times to visit. Of special interest are subject-specific indexes — gorgeous beaches, destination restaurants, world-class museums — making the guide entirely user-friendly, no matter if you're dreaming or going.

Review:

Found this book very helpful in getting ideas for things to see in different countries. It inspired me to see Istanbul and Morocco! Wonderful!
To the writer that commented that he only reviewed hotels.... well... I dont think thats quite fair. Most if not all of the hotels that he did comment on are of historical or architectural significance. It was also written for those that have a lot of money... and for those of us who dont. It is easy to plan your trip around costs and seasonal preferences! LOVED the book!

I noticed that many many entries in "1000 places" are hotels. Did Patricia ever journy out side of the Buffet rooms?
I would like to see more natual stunning places than airconditioned halls. What if a traveler (broke as myself) can't afford lunch at the Ritz?
