Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - Christine Delsol
The authors... understand it takes more than an exotic landscape to make an unforgettable trip — it takes those moments of discovery that come during an encounter with nature, a physical challenge or willing submission to a strange culture.
CanWest News Service
Goes beyond couch potato and engages mind, body and spirit... dramatic photography.
New Orleans Times-Picayune - Millie Ball
Checking ourselves against lists of things we "must" do is an entertaining (and competitive, even if we're alone) pastime... color photos that make you want to be in the photo.

Library Journal
Travel writers Watkins and Jones have experienced the sort of activities most people only dream about. In this beautifully illustrated book, they present 40 destinations that offer unusual, exotic, and essential travel experiences. These adventures include elephant riding in Chitwan, Nepal, in a bird sanctuary that includes about a 20th of the world's known species, and taking a flying safari over the Skeleton Coast of Namibia, a lonely stretch of coastline littered with the remains of ships and bones. Other destinations range from crazy New Orleans during Mardi Gras to paradise: Dhoni Mighili in the Maldives, where visitors are pampered in quiet luxury. Readers can also plan a trek through the ice and rock of Torres del Paine, in Patagonia, Chile, or take a quieter visit to Paleochora, Crete, with its bountiful spring wildflowers. The authors recommend choosing high-end accommodations or special tours to ensure an unforgettable visit. Their book will inspire vacationers and engross armchair travelers alike. Recommended for public libraries.-Melissa Stearns, Franklin Pierce Coll. Lib., Rindge, NH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
