Overview

Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher

Where To Go When, the ultimate trip planner for every month of the year, is a beautifully illustrated book that is both practical and inspiring. For every month of the year it presents 30 recommendations of destinations that are at their best during each month, whether due to their climate, or value or because there's a lot going on.

The suggestions feature every flavour of travel experience from culture-rich city breaks and tropical beach holidays to adventurous road trips and wildlife-watching expeditions. Every corner of the planet is covered so you'll find out when the best time to see mountain gorillas is or to go shopping in Paris.

The book is organised by month. At the start of each chapter a flowchart guides you through the options so readers can filter the recommendations according to their interests. Whether you're into beaches, trying the local specialities or backpacking off the beaten path, there will suggestions for you. Diagrams also depict the climate, value for money and family friendliness of each suggestion in the month.

Then Lonely Planet's authors explain in detail why each destination has been selected. The text describes the place and why it's special at that particular time. The destinations are illustrated by inspiring photographs and have a small infographic that shows the key reasons to go. Practical details make the first step of planning a trip easier.

Packed with facts, photos and new ideas for your next adventure, Where to Go When will inspire and interest anybody who loves travel.

This wonderful book is great for those with travel plans in mind, as well as for those who prefer to travel around the world without leaving home. Using the succinct, practical approach that has made Lonely Planet travel books so popular, the authors have divided the book into 12 chapters, one for each month, each describing 30 different places to visit when the conditions and circumstances are just right. At the start of each chapter, a two-page flow chart allows readers to decide just what kinds of trips they want, from short breaks to two-week adventures, whether relaxing/indulging or hoping to challenge myself. Each entry starts with an answer to the question Why now? (peninsular Malaysia in April: Explore cities, beaches, islands, and highlands in relatively dry condition) as well as trip plans (Kangaroo Island, Australia, in July: You could do a day trip, but take advantage of off-season prices to stay for longer). The true delights of the book are the copious stunning photos used to illustrate destination wonders such as Montenegros Bay of Kotor and Bhutans Tango Goema monastery. (Nov.)
