Lonely Planet is the world's number one guidebook publisher.
At Lonely Planet we tell it like it is, without fear or favour. There's a whole world of amazing sights, hotels, travel companies and gear manufacturers out there - and we want to tell you which ones we think are best. But we never compromise our opinions for commercial gain. If you read something written by a Lonely Planet author, you can guarantee they've been there, had a look for themselves and are telling you what they really think. It's trusted advice from a trusted source.
We publish guidebooks covering almost every country in the world for a range of trips, as well as inspirational food and drink books and coffee table books. We recently launched Lonely Planet Kids, bringing the world to life for kids aged 5+.
