Product description

Amazon Review

Let's face it, for many of us, travel is one of the key factors in giving our lives meaning. We build our year around those precious few weeks when we can make our way to some exotic destination and experience things that are different from all that we normally encounter. With Make the Most of Your Time on Earth (subtitled a Rough Guide to the World), we are offered what the publishers claim are ‘1000 Ultimate Travel Experiences’. And those familiar with the Rough Guide catalogue will know that that is no idle boast. Within this arm-straining book, we are presented (at length) with the most exhilarating travel experiences the world has to offer. Every possible diversion is on offer here, from a cool and aesthetic appreciation of exquisite architecture to pulse-raising adventure holidays. With Rough Guide’s intrepid team of specialists (always seeing things from a different angle), one can trek the Ganges or go mountain biking on some of the world's most treacherous roads in Bolivia.

Alongside the more physical adventures here, we are given the perfect guide to enjoying the ancient beauty of Venice as well as many experiences which are more off the normal tourist trail (such as snorkelling in Tanzania). The thoroughness of the book is as exhaustive as one could wish, with (for instance) fascinating detail on wildlife and festivals. And for those of us attempting to ensure that our holidays have an ethical dimension, such elements are treated with the thoroughness one would expect from this publisher. The sheer bulk of the book means that this is one for planning with rather than stuffing into a rucksack, but such pre-planning will be sheer pleasure. --Barry Forshaw
