Synopsis: Patricia Schultz curates the world. When she published the original 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, she created not only a new kind of travel book but also a new way of thinking about our experiences and interests.
Now Schultz captivates our hearts in the same compelling way her original book spoke to our minds. Moving from eloquent word to breathtaking image, she takes us on a visual journey of the best the world has to offer, and as we turn the pages and pore over these images, we feel it all: joy, curiosity, awe, passion, nostalgia (if we’ve been there), inspiration (because we want to go), and a profound and transforming sense of how lucky we are to live in a world filled with such beauty and wonder—to see tributaries of mist curling over the Great Wall, elephants grazing on the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, the sun setting on the wild coast of Donegal, masked whirling dancers at a festival in Bhutan.
The book itself is a thing of beauty, an oversize feast of more than 1,000 all-new photographs and 544 pages, every spread and page designed to showcase these mesmerizing photographs and hold just enough of Schultz’s lively text that we know why it is we’re looking at them. It is a perfect gift for every traveler, every fan of the original, every dreamer whose Instagram feed is filled with pictures of places near and far.

When I received this book for review, it was nothing like I had expected! This giant coffee table read is a magnificent book filled with photos of places in the world that are absolutely stunning!
Organized by region of the world, each of the 1000 locations include a description of the location and photos that highlight the beauty of that place and why you need to visit it. This edition is truly a deluxe edition, with over 1000 photos and a beautiful hardcover casing. The book measures 24.9 x 3.8 x 33 cm and includes over 500 glossy pages.
This is a great book for travel lovers and people who want to see the world – it takes the original book to an entirely different level. I have already put this on my list to get for a few people as a holiday gift!
