Lonely Planet's Wonders of the World

From Antarctica and the Amazon to Victoria Falls and the Great Wall of China, the Lonely Planet's Wonders of the World showcases 101 spectacular sights, all that I really would love to visit, if given the opportunity – and how to experience them on any budget.

I love that this book features human-made wonders that people may already know, such as the Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat. 

But Lonely Planet's destination experts have also selected less famous sights that are equally captivating: such as the entwined tree bridges of Meghalaya in India, the intricate Islamic architecture of Naqsh-e Jahan in Iran, and the massive Buddhist temple of Borobudur in central Java.... And so much more... 

There are also breathtaking Museums with remarkable collections of wonders have also been included, such as the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands and the British Museum in London... 

Nature lovers will also be impressed with all the  natural wonders compiled in this book,ssuch as the impressive giant trees in California, cascading lakes in Croatia, multi-coloured hills in China, great waterfalls, the world’s biggest cave, and such natural phenomena as the wave of cherry blossom (sakura) that sweeps across Japan each spring, and the light show of the auroras across the planet’s northern and southern extremities... Oh my god.. If only I can travel to each and every place there is... But since I can't, I can only half content myself by browsing through this lovely book and checking them them all out while planning which places I can visit... 

Available in stores now, Lonely Planet's Wonders of the World is both inspiring and practical, with expert advice, best-value itineraries, beautiful photography, and local secrets.

Thanks to Lonely Planet’s network of travel experts and 45 years of experience, the book also includes guides to each of these wonders (something I truly appreciate) , with recommendations on the best times to visit, how to get there, and where to stay and eat - however deep your pockets. Two sample itineraries cover short and longer trips to allow travellers to make plans based on the time and funds they have available.
