Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Alaskan Apple Users Group Blog, November 26, 2013

“Over 35 events, in 200 pages that help you plan, dream, and pack your bags. Well written, and thought out.”

Examiner.com, November 8, 2013

”No matter whether you are looking for mountain biking (Avoriaz France is the top choice), cycling (Mexico, New Zealand), walking, beachcombing or sightseeing, this book will whet your appetite.”

Reader’s Digest Canada, November 2013

“The new Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2014 offers gorgeous photography alongside listings of the years top countries, regions and cities (our own Vancouver made the cut), plus events guides, offbeat and themed travel ideas and more.”

Glam, October 29, 2013

“The must-have book for jet setters around the globe highlights the world’s top destinations for 2014. . . . With gorgeous photos to accompany each write-up, and information proving unique, easy-to-read, and brilliantly insightful, prepare to get the travel itch like never before.”

Library Journal
01/01/2014
This visually appealing guide provides suggestions for where to travel by country, region, and city, as well as various lists such as family travel, low cost, and best beaches. It is based on what the folks at Lonely Planet have observed as up-and-coming destinations, or those locations with significant events worthy of travel in 2014, such as the World Cup in Brazil. Whether these places are indeed the best is certainly open for debate, but nonetheless there are excellent suggestions for travelers looking for ideas. This volume offers only an overview, so specifics such as sites, lodging, or logistics are not available—just ideas, lovely photographs, and enticing reasons to visit. Lonely Planet publishes this guide annually to highlight the best destinations for the upcoming year. Similar books such as National Geographic's 100 Countries, 5,000 Ideas and Reader's Digest's Off the Beaten Path contain inspiration but do not focus on what's trending for the upcoming year. VERDICT This is a fun title to browse, good for trip idea generation and particularly useful for those who are out of ideas about where to travel for their next vacation.—Louise Feldmann, Colorado State Univ. Lib., Fort Collins
