Where to buy it


Kick start your travel planning with this guide / travel narrative. The author seeks to unravel our world's most unique locations, untainted by mass tourism.

Explore over twenty-five amazing destinations with a focus on hiking and cultural sites. Trek through untouched valleys with more sheep than people in the blustery Faroe Islands. Feel the heat of an ancient Buddhist fire ceremony in the secluded Kingdom of Bhutan. Discover these and more unique places across five continents through bite-sized narratives and on-the-ground travel advice.

Choose from six themes—wilderness treks, little-known hikes, ancient temples, rare festivals, fallen kingdoms and modern metropolises—to find unexpected wonders around our world. Taste the fiery sambal of Brunei’s Gadong Night Market or dance alongside your favourite Malipenga team on Malawi’s Likoma Island.
