Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a travel book with a difference, there are 500 festivals listed that take place throughout the year. The author has taken the time to research each one and give a brief history of how the festival started. Some of them go back many hundreds of years. It is a book that you can dip in and out of at your leisure, if you are planning a trip it would be good to look up the country to see if there is a festival as the author makes you want to go and see and experience them. It also has beautiful photos to go with them.

I just received this as a present and can only say how brilliant it is. Jam-packed with precious information and hundreds of spectacular photographs, I'll be using it to plan trips for years to come - my list of "must-see" destinations and festivals has just doubled! I recommend this remarkable book for anyone interested in travelling and/or photography. What a fantastic gift!

This is a gorgoeus, visual photo book of festivals around the world. I'd been to a few, but realise I've been to very few indeed.

The descriptions are great too, giving a tantalising peek behind the indivual character of each festivan, and some context behind the photos.

I'm using this book to plan imagaery, and hopefully real trip in my imagination.
