Lonely Planet’s The Cities Book: A Journey Through the Best Cities in the World is back in a new and fully updated second edition.

 

From Abu Dhabi to Zanzibar, the encyclopaedic hardback tome explores 200 of the world’s most dynamic cities with insight and inspiration, illustrated with 750 awe-inspiring photographs.

With The Cities Book, readers will learn what’s at the heart of each city, with essential information, background and planning advice, including its anatomy and people, best time to go, imports and exports, as well as its strengths and weaknesses; movies it’s been featured in; where to shop, experience nightlife, watch shows and more.

 

To get travellers inspired, The Cities Book also includes top five best cities for bookworms, LGBT travellers, skylines, art galleries, coffee, museums, accessibility, cycling, architecture, wine, music and more.

 

The Cities Book is a world tour from city to city, coast to coast, spanning the globe from cities located at the southernmost tip of South America (Ushuaia) to the remote country of Mongolia (Ulaanbaatar), creating a rich tapestry of cultures, sights and community.
