User reviews
I usually like Lonely Planet but suggesting to visit the "mountainous Northwestern region of Pakistan" will most likely end up in death.
Unless you aspire to travel like a "Survivor" fan, this book is not for you. It dwells on the most bizarre of activities and destinations that only a fraction of the population could find inviting or affordable. Enjoy the taste of grubs or insects? - This is for you. Got unlimited travel funds, come aboard.

If you expect a book that narrows the world's most fulfilling and affordable destinations down to a practical choice, look elsewhere. This book was a major disappointment with only a few helpful pages.
Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2009 (General Reference)

850 Trends, Destinations, Journeys & Experiences for the Year Ahead-that's how Lonely Planet describes their newest "wish" book. Picking the brains of their best authors, Lonely Planet has put together a book for the travel-minded person who wants a creative mix of what's best. This is a book to charge the senses about possible travel tours and to facilitate formulating plans before you get to the ticket purchasing stage. Open a random page and begin reading the eclectic topics offered. The book is divided into a collection of Top Tens: Countries, Regions, Cities, a large section on Water: the Ultimate Traveller and Top Travel Lists. Facts and trivia abound in this exciting addition to the Lonely Planet guides.

Top Ten Countries: (Not those you might think.) Here's an opportunity to read what's best about Kyrgyzstan ("the country your inner nomad has secretly been dreaming about all these years") and Oman ("the real deal"). Paragraphs on the defining experience, hot topic of the day, festivals and events and life-changing experiences will pique your interest to learn more about these unusual, off-the-beaten-track places on the globe.

Top Ten Regions: A few better known regions add to the mix of the unusual here. Learn a bit about France's Languedoc, Svarlbard, Norway, France and Spain's Basque Country (home to some of Europe's best walking.)

Check out The World of Water for the best sparkle, the best partying, the best place to drop anchor and much more. Go on a water safari, drink in an igloo, take a husky ride are just some of the experiences detailed in this fascinating chapter. Also, don't miss fabulous ferries and water worship (Do you know the six places for the best liquid blessings?).

Lonely Planet's Top Travel Lists contains a potpourri of exciting tidbits such as the top ten places to steal a kiss (no surprise that Paris is number one), the flashiest lighthouses, the best places to have a midlife crisis (bet you can't wait for THAT one or the next!-best places for deadly sins).

Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2009 is fantastic even if you're not planning a trip. It's great to educate yourself about places you may not have heard, about customs you may not know exist and otherwise to learn more about our fantastic, wonderful, diverse planet. This is a book to inform, to entertain and to get the creative juices charged up to learn more. Beautiful photos highlight nearly every page. The layout is hip, the text easy to read. Each topic covers a paragraph to a couple of pages of fascinating reading to incite wanderlust in the most dedicated armchair enthusiast.
Travel Guide and Ripleys Believe it or Not all in one.

I have a couple of friends who love to travel. They have an unusual way of picking their destinations. Each year they look for a solar eclipse event. Wherever in the world it may occur, at whatever time of the year. Then that location becomes their travel destination for that year. The beauty of the system is that both the time and the place are fixed (place is usually a swath of land typically a couple of hundred miles wide and about a thousand miles long). I typically had a theme, such as best scuba diving or most scenic national parks.

This book is like that. A bunch of ideas in case you feel adventurous and need a place based on some whim, desire, or inkling. 850 of them. Who remembers in what context characters spun a globe, then with the eyes closed stopped it with a finger, and then went there. This book is not quite this random. You start out with a list of Top 10 countries, then 10 regions and 10 cities. But be prepared for off the beaten path places: Kyrgyzstan, Svalbard, Algeria, Bangladesh, Oman. Want to stay in THE Hotel? How about Rwanda. Each location has a listing of population, language, cost index (hotel, taxi and beer are typical), defining experience, festivals, life changing experiences, whats hot and whats not.

Quite a few destinations include "Most Bizarre", "Random Facts", and a "Classic place to stay" discussion. This is makes reading it fun like the Ripleys Believe it or Not stories.

That my friends was the "conventional" part of the book. Over three quarters of the book is about specific Theme travel. Big chapter on water; tides, dams, ferries, water festivals (in Spain, Japan, India, Zambia), and great rivers.

And lastly, the remainder (half) of the book is smaller chapters devoted to : hairiest commutes , places to steal a kiss, best places to throw yourself off, best lighthouses, miracles, best cycling adventures, happiest places (Bhutan), etc.

The book concludes with country profiles for all of the places. Quite honest assessments, such that you will not have unrealistic expectations for accommodations in say Liberia (!!!?). The inside back cover is for time dependent travel. Say you want the most from your travel in October? How about the Lake of Stars in Malawi, shores of Lake Malawi hosts a three-day music festival.

Technical details: The book is soft cover bound, 240 pages, contains gorgeous photographs in full color, and would even make a great coffee table, or a reception area book.
