4.0 out of 5 stars The beautiful world., 13 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die (Unforgettable... Before You Die) (Paperback)
This is a book with the author, Steve Davey's 50 favourite places in the world to go and see if you want to see unforgettable beauty and wonder.
It's a moot point whenever somebody compiles one of these type of books because evryone has their own opinion. It has to be said these are not necessarily he's favourite places but places where panoramic photos can be taken and special artifacts or ruins can be spotted.
I was slightly disappointed that no places in England were included but Scotland and Ireland both had an entry. I doubt i'd ever be able to afford to go to all of these destinations but it works as a good reference for some posible places to visit especially Petra and Dubrovnik, an underrated spot in Coatia that my airline flies to but unfortunately we don't stay at. These are all places that had a more profound meaning towards and are really worth going to. They are not the typical English holiday destinations like the Spanish coast or the Med although Santorini, A Greek island is in here, which to me are not places of beauty but destinations that are now too busy and dominated by ugly high rise buildings. Even a place like Dubai has fallen a victim to this.
These pictures are from the real world and these have been picked by a man lucky enough to have visited these such places among others obviously. The text about the destinations is informative, each with a short paragraph telling you how you can get there etc. It's full of fascinating pictures which would make this a good purchase along if only to be used as a coffee table book.
Unfortunately I don't consider it a 50 unforgettable places to see before you die without somewhere like Sierra Leone or Niger included with extreme poverty rife as to me this is unforgettable in the real sense of the world.
