501 Must - Visit Cities - David Brown
501 Must Visit Cities by David Brown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Travel to the most spectacular and enigmatic cities across the globe. The book provides the reader with a wealth of interesting and useful information about each city featured. Each entry is beautifully illustrated.
A wide range of cities are covered in this book, crossing continets, history and culture. This book is great if you want inspiration for where to travel to next, however this is not a guide book. It is broken down into contients and are colour coded at the top of each page.
The book includes some lovely photographs from famous places and those not so familiar with. There is on average one page per city so the detail has to be cut some what on larger cities with more tourist attractions.
There are some cities in this book you may not have come across before, as they don't just include the famous/capitals. This gives you an insight into other areas of the country and could prehaps tempt you for a visit.
The way that the book is written to me isn't that inspiring and could come across dull at times. However what makes up for this is the quick facts based on each city, these are well worth a read.
