Book Description

5 Oct 2009 1001
"1001 Escapes To Make Before You Die" is the essential guide for all discerning travelers seeking an escape from the madding crowd. Every experience described in this book represents a genuine respite from the drudgery of daily life and guarantees a boost to your general well-being. Contemplate the sunset from a minimalist mountain retreat, cruise the Nile on a nineteenth-century cabin cruiser, hire a fort with its own private beach, chill out in an ice hotel, or wallow in a mud bath. The choice is yours. This book is quite simply a compilation of some of the most amazing escapes from the everyday that you can experience in the world - however much time you have to spare and whatever your budget. Within these pages you will find classic escapes that offer away-from-it-all tranquility, such as a sun-drenched private Caribbean island, complete with butler; a converted monastery in Peru, at such high altitude that oxygen has to be pumped into the bedrooms; a lighthouse in Newfoundland; and, that most classic of great train journeys, the Trans-Siberian railway.Beautifully illustrated, "1001 Escapes To Make Before You Die" will also show you some hidden gems located in some of the world's biggest and busiest cities that offer the perfect retreat from the frenzy of city life. Discover an oasis of greenery just a stone's throw from Djemma El Fna, the pulsating center of Marrakech; a tranquil walled garden in the heart of London's Chelsea; and, a hidden treehouse deep within the Amazon rain forest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full of Inspirational Travel Ideas. 19 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
At my request, this book was bought for me as a present. I love travel and this book is well written and full of beautiful hidden places. We have visited a few of these places and they were well worth seeing. I now have lots of ideas of places to visit both at home and abroad. Whatever kind of escape you like, this book will help you find places that you never thought of. It has plenty of inspirational travel ideas and lovely photographs to whet your appetite.
