Off the Tourist Trail is a guide to the world's unspoiled sights and experiences It takes a hundred clichéd tourist destinations everything from over visited national parks to overrated museums and reveal 1000 fresh and fascinating alternative options Written by a team of travel experts and with a foreword by Bill Bryson this book brings vibrant cities enchanting sights breathtaking natural wonders and un This was a fun uick book with really interesting alternatives in it Some I'd heard of many I hadn't I appreciated the suggestions for those who really want to go to the original touristy places anyway but I felt their criticisms of many of those same places were a bit harsh We all know tourist places are going to be packed with other tourists and not as charming as they may have been 100 years ago but we don't care I just really liked having alternative options that include the same awe and inspiration as the originals but are likely to feel like original experiences instead of just checking something off a listThere are a few pages with dozens of suggestions in little boxes across the whole spread and I found this overwhelming and disenchanting Too much text too little detail too few photos too little color Plus the design wasn't always well done so you'd have a picture of penguins and you'd think Oh that looks neat where's that? but you'd have to read every single suare around the photo to figure out which one mentions penguins because it wasn't clear which box was meant to pair with the photo Design wise that didn't work well at allI actually used this book to make a fun list of new places I'd like to visit additions to my standard bucket list of to see someday places around the world It stretched my interest into regions I'd never really expected to see on my list before such as Iran and Japan and Argentina and occasionally held the Wow factor as I discovered things I never knew about familiar places I already love or want to explore such as the Netherlands and Paris and Canada Overall a fun and horizon expanding book
