I have always wanted the opportunity to travel the world, and it is pathetic to think of the few places I have ever seen bar the UK. I was given this book by a friend, and it really has the most amazing reviews for each city it suggests. The book tries to get across the importance of each city having a unique character to it, ('despite the prevalence of global brands and chains'). I highly recommend it, even if just to educate yourself slightly further about some of the worlds greatest cities. Although I fear after reading it, you may end up booking flights all around the world.
