Dublin. Perth. Online


I saw this book on my travels in Dublin and wanted to buy it. Didn't want to carry it with me so looked at home in Perth. Wanted to make sure it was the latest Lonely Planet Travel book and found it $40 cheaper online. Boom. #itsasale

I have one published in 2005 . This is a gem for information on where to visit in this amazing world . Grea gift for family and friends who love to travel . My "old one " is falling apart from over use !!!

Brisbane Australia

Great conversation starter


Great coffee table book. I'm sure it's going to be one of those books people will pick up and flick through. We first saw an older edition when we stayed at an Airbnb a few weeks ago and knew we wanted one!

Melbourne Australia

5.0 5


"Anyone who has childhood memories of leafing through reference books full of brightly coloured pictures and exotic facts from far-away lands (Encyclopaedia Britannica or Funk& Wagnalls, anyone?) will know the pleasure that awaits in Lonely Planet's new edition of The Travel Book ... The 2016 update on the publisher's classic million-selling coffee table tome is one to treasure, for both curious adults and children...It's a great place to start plans and dreams."
