I LOVE THIS BOOK

on 5/11/2012

I only picked up this book a little while ago and have just browsed through it but even with just doing that, all my future travel plans that I thought were firmly cemented in my mind have been uprooted or at least now in question. The author has a done an excellent and in depth job of uncovering places to see that most of us would never have been able to find let alone just think of. I think once I read this book cover to cover I will replanning the rest of my life. Read More

Product Overview

500 Places to See Before They Disappear enables passionate travelers and the eco-conscious to learn about and plan a visit to see rare cultural, historic, and natural places before they are irrevocably altered or even gone forever. Here are one-of-a-kind landscapes, fragile ecosystems, rare bird habitats, places to see the last remaining species of big game in the wild, cityscapes in peril, vanishing cultural kitsch, petroglyphs, and more—500 thoughtfully-chosen treasures that will inspire and enlighten travelers of all ages.

Each entry explains why it’s been included, gives its history, the nature of the threat against it, brief practical information on how to visit, and what visitors can to do protect it. A Geographical Index allows travelers to locate attractions across the world. Photos throughout the book help bring destinations to life.
