For more than a century, National Geographic has journeyed the world, bringing back intriguing stories of faraway places. Inside this volume, you'll find our picks of the world's most fabulous journeys - with gorgeous photos, full-colour maps, and expert advice for making each trip a reality.
Each chapter showcases a different mode of transport or type of trip - satisfy your wanderlust in hiking boots in the Swiss Alps or aboard a helicopter over Angkor Wat; tour the tapas bars of Barcelona or the Wineries of the Napa Valley, or work off those calories by hiking the Milford Track in New Zealand. Whether you're a culture vulture or a history lover who wants to follow in the footsteps of Alexander the Great or Charles Darwin, there's a trip for you. Fun top ten lists highlight quirky travel options: the world's top elevator rides, bridges to walk across, steam trains, ancient highways, and many more. You'll also get tips on useful things to know, from where to sit on the train, to what to wear and what to order.
