By Chris Hall TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 1:55 Mins
Here we have another coffee table book from the popular 'Lonely Planet' team. Don't be fooled by the book's title, this is not a list of 1000 crazy-ass experiences for adrenaline-junkie maniacs looking for their next adventurous hit. Ok, so you've got some of that in there with the likes of the top ten 'biggest adrenaline rushes'. Instead, what we have here is a basic overview of experiences to be had from around the world. No matter what you want out of travelling, this book will have a chapter suiting your needs, giving inspiring details on what they class as the `top ten' places to experience it.

So, whether you're looking for awesome treks, top works of engineering genius, riskiest travel pursuits, the best places for a cuppa, the best places to experience music, the top ten places to go skinny-dipping or the world's strangest festivals; this book really does offer up a lot of suggestions for places to visit.

And that's the book in a nutshell. It's really just there to inspire and offer up initial suggestions. This is certainly not the book to plan a holiday with, or a in-depth guide to the various destinations of the world. This book comes before them. If you fancy just sitting back and skimming through a litany of various different experiences on offer throughout the world, then this is ideal.

The book is also intriguing to look up various places that you know that you'll be visiting (or indeed where you already live) to see what experiences the 'lonely planet' guide thinks that particular destination stands out from the crowd with (Wales had five `hits' - Best Cheap Sleeps, Best Spiritual Sleeps, Best British Regional Food, 2 x Finest Walks In The UK).

Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is really well laid out and the descriptions of each destination and experience are excellent. There's an experience for everybody, catering from adrenaline rushes to working on a farm. The experiences are ordered into common-sense sections, and there are some geniunely great ideas for breaks off the beaten track or properly tuned to the type of holiday you really want. This book is well recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looking for inspiration and ideas? 21 Jan 2010
By purpleheart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is great for sparking ideas - just leafing through is enough to get the pulse racing. And that's about it - great for inspiration and gauging what types of places you want to visit, or adventure to have, or pilgrimages you want to make, but necessarily poor on follow through - since it's covering so much subject matter. You won't be able to plan from this, or learn much more than a sound bite paragraph can give you.

As others have said its size and format means that it's not got full coffee table, photograph gazing potential. But it's pretty enough to excite and inspire and get you list making and that's what it's for I think, and very nice it is too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, could be organised better
Great book, full with all hidden places of the world to visit, it could sort the adventures into countries rather than the sections in the book it falls in.
