4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful photography in this coffee table tome, 31 Dec 2013
This review is from: Great Escapes: Experience the World at Your Leisure (Lonely Planet Travel Pictorial) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book follows Great Journeys and Great Adventures in the Lonely Planet series. It's a fairly large book generally covering each location across four pages, two of which will be full page photographs and the remaining two a mixture of text, smaller photos and maps.

As a book to leave on a coffee table and occasionally flick through, it's pretty much perfect but don't expect to find too much detail in the limited amount of text. Typically the text will give a brief overview of the local culture, a few lines on things to do and a list of books or films that are linked to that place in some way.

I found myself flicking through and thinking 'wow, I'd like to go there' regularly but there isn't enough detailed information to make much of a decision other than the best months of the year to go. On the other hand, if all you want is inspiration for some fantastic places to visit then there is plenty to found here.
