Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die

  • Steve Davey



The first in a new series of books that will help you search out some of the world's essential places and experiences.

UNFORGETTABLE PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE is the first in a new series of books that will help you search out some of these essential places and experiences. These books are not travel guides and they're certainly not definitive, but they will introduce you to a host of spectacular places that can all be visited in a regular two- week holiday or less.

Compiled by the people who really know, each book will be written by an expert writer and photographer who will visit each location in person. In the first title, international travel writer and photographer, Steve Davey, draws on his years of experience and selects 40 of his personal favourite destinations that will inspire you to think beyond your office walls. Some of the locations are relatively well- known such as the Taj Mahal (but we felt that it just couldn't be left out) and the Alhambra in Spain (although by staying in the Parador in the grounds of the palace you can explore in the cool of the morning before the crowds arrive), but most are off the beaten track, such as Angkor Wat in Cambodia- a valley strewn with breath- taking Buddhist temples. Some involve relatively comfortable journeys, whilst others involve trekking across the wilderness to see the rock- hewn churches at Lalibela in Ethiopia or watching the sunrise over the Himalayas in Nepal.

Aimed at style-conscious travellers looking for new sights and experiences, proposed future titles in the series include UNFORGETTABLE PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE and WILD PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE.
