Lonely Planet: The Traveller’s Guide to Planet Earth


Reveals the places you dreamed of visiting after watching the series and how to explore them for yourself.


From the world’s leading travel content provider and BBC Earth’s landmark series comes the planet as you’ve never experienced it – Lonely Planet’s the Traveller’s Guide to Planet Earth. 50 extraordinary destinations from the spectacular documentary are vividly collated in this 300+ page book.

Neatly divided into categories from Planet Earth’s episodes there are tasters for all tastes, including mountains, fresh water, caves, deserts, ice worlds, great plains, jungles, shallow seas, seasonal forests and oceans deep.

Each destination begins with a globe and country map to get your bearings, revealing what you will see on the screen as well as the best times to visit with a few finely photographed examples. The following page often entails a full double page spread image with a short first person encounter called ‘experience’. The next page of text is a snap shot on how to take action, what to do, how to get there, a list of fast facts and boxed particulars on the region.


Stunning photography turn this inspiring travel reference into a visual delight of diversity – whether it’s a rare native mammal, severe mountain-scape or medieval market, its the perfect coffee table book for any traveller – or traveller to be.
