Book review: 1000 Ultimate Experiences.

Want to know where to discover spectacular beach, museum, sight, or thrill, 1000 Ultimate Experiences has it all.

Published by the world’s leading travel authority with the help of many local writers, this is a treasure for people who like to travel.

The text is divided into several sections starting with the best beaches to swing a hammock and continuing with the biggest adrenalin rush, ultimate places to see or observe wild life, and it goes on to the coldest and hottest places in the world.

Richly illustrated on shiny, luxurious paper, the book is a delight to read, anywhere, any time, and for any length of time. You can read a few pages, and leave it on the coffee table continue whenever the mood strikes you again. When you are planning for a solo short or long vacation, or with family, start here.

First decide what you want to do, and look up the appropriate heading.

Similarly, if you are undecided, reading or perusing the headings will give you ideas.

If you are interested in swimming or just lying on the beach, Karala Coast, India, may be of interest to you, or Dahab in Egypt. If Thailand is on your plan, do not miss Ko Pha-Ngan.

If you happen to be interested in town squares, this book offers you many choices starting with the Red Square in Moscow, to Djemaa El-Ftna in Morocco, and every other imaginable city of the world, including Esfahan, Iran, Zocalo, in Mexico City, the Old Town Square in Prague, just to name a few.

If you like to drive and love adventure 1000 Ultimate Experiences has a few suggestions, like Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt, or Amsterdam to Istanbul, or Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Canada, or Rout 66,USA, or the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

This is a book for all, the adventurous traveller, the “driver”, or even the “armchair” traveller, knowing where you can hunt for the best culture, or “spiritual sleeps” in temples, convents, retreats, or a monastery.

All offer quiet relaxation, ample food served in a convivial environment, and is inexpensive to boot.

Highly recommended.
