Overview

The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast.

Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz,but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm.

The world is calling. Time to answer.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The original edition of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die sold three million copies, making it the bestselling travel book of its kind in history, but author Patricia Schultz isn't resting on her laurels. The thoroughly revised second edition contains 200 completely new entries, adding more than two dozen countries to its roster, and 500 full-color photographs. Just as significantly, every entry has been revised and updated with fifty percent new material, giving each more detail and relevance to travelers today. The world at your fingertips.

From the Publisher
“[1,000 Places to See Before You Die] has joined the canon of classic reference tomes that earn periodic updates and cozy homes on the bookshelf next to the thesaurus. It is sure to land under many trees this year.”
- TIME.com

“Globe-trotters and vicarious adventure-seekers alike will find this full revamp of a world traveler’s bible even more informative and inspiring than before.”
- ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Schultz has given her iconic guide a complete makeover. With 500 new photographs, 200 new entries and 28 new countries, the second edition is more informative, budget-conscious and user-friendly.”
- BOOKPAGE

“It’s a big world out there, which makes it hard to decide on a vacation destination. The Internet can seem just as vast when it comes time to research. That’s why Patricia Schultz’s 1,000 Places to See Before You Die deserves a place on your bookshelf. The revised version of the 2003 bestseller is a great inspiration tool that includes both the obvious…and the less so.”
- THE WASHINGTON POST

“She [Schultz] has managed to work a little literary magic here—and still keep her original 1,000 favorite places—by reorganizing and rewriting the content of the first edition. As always, her entries are irresistibly idiosyncratic, from ‘Beer in Belgium’ to ‘The Last Supper’ and Other Works of Leonardo Da Vinci.’”
- CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“The names of authors who have sold millions of travel guidebooks are widely known: Fodor. Frommer. Steves. Oh, and don't forget Schultz. You know, Patricia Schultz. Still not familiar? Her signature title surely is: ‘1,000 Places to See Before You Die.’ The travel expert who launched legions of bucket lists back in 2003 (before we even knew what a bucket list was) has just come out with a massive, full-color second edition and companion iPad app.”
- SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS

“Whether they’re outdoor adventures or simply armchair travelers, readers on your holiday list will enjoy 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. Informative, clear and accessible.”
- VENTURA COUNTY STAR

“The perennial guide to iconic travel destination is back with a brand-new edition. We read the entire book, stopping to gasp, comment and bookmark several pages along the way.”
- THE HUFFINGTON POST

“Patricia Schultz’s classic bucket list book of travel musts have been updated, and the second edition has full color, revised information and about 200 new entries. It’s fun to peruse when putting together your travel wish list.”
- CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“For travelers who think they’ve seen it all, surely there’s a place you haven’t visited in this newly revised classic bestseller.”
- PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE1,000 Places to See Before You Die is out in a new full-color second edition, and should set anybody’s imagination soaring. It is a book to browse under the Snuggie on a long winter night and daydream with.”
- DELAWARE STAR NEWS

Publishers Weekly
The original has formed the bucket list for hordes of eager travelers, and this updated guide will do exactly the same (but better).Schultz has added 200 new entries, hundreds of color photographs, and a great deal of new material that will whet readers' appetites for trips all over the globe.She does a decent job of striking a balance between offering high-end as well as budget travel options, and she covers destinations in creative ways, such as splitting the famed Irish capital into "Edible Dublin" and "Literary Dublin." For those with tight schedules, thoughtful delineations like these can transform a hectic day of sightseeing into a veritable curated tour.While the guide is unsurprisingly European and American focused (Europe gets more than 350 pages; Africa barely gets 70),Shultz covers familiar and obscure attractions with equal enthusiasm. The guide is not meant to be a photo album, but this new edition's photographs (though small) will surely get readers excited about new destinations.Supplemental online resources admirably compensate for the book's biggest flaw (no index) by providing travelers looking to tailor their trips with several themed indexes such as "Sacred Places" and "Gorgeous Beaches and Getaway Islands." This is a great resource for readers in the midst of packing their bags as well as those still waiting to feel the wanderlust.(Nov.)

    a great investment

    I have purchased sixteen copies of the first edition and both a electronic version and a paperback version of the second edition. There are too many places to see and not enough time. Some of the most famous are duds and getting advice about what really is worth your time and your money is what people who have limited time and limited money.

    The book lives up to the promise of revising the same book from its first edition. It promises better information on the same places mentioned from the first book as well as adding more to it. The pictures could have been bigger though but still a good book to check out.
