Description

Philip's World Traveller's Atlas has been specially created for the international traveller, whether on business or pleasure. Together with 128 pages of detailed world mapping, it provides two unique travel-planning sections: 'World Explorer' and 'World Cities'. Packed with informative maps, photographs and text, the 32-page 'World Explorer' guides the reader to 400 carefully selected destinations around the globe, providing a wealth of inspiration for short breaks or holidays. The destinations are arranged by theme or activity, ranging from natural wonders like volcanoes and canyons to activities such as snowboarding and whale watching. Other themes include railway and river journeys and ocean cruises, historic sites, festivals and theme parks. In addition, 'World Cities' provides detailed and indexed city maps of 67 major cities around the world, backed up by an illustrated directory of the 100 most visited cities and major capitals, with suggestions for short-stay visitors on what to see and where to find entertainment. 'Regions in the News' are covered with detailed maps of global flashpoints: Iraq, Israel and the South-east Asia tsunami.This authoritative atlas also contains 128 pages of Philip's relief mapping, all fully updated. Ideal for travel planning, Philip's maps combine hill-shading with layer-coloured contours to give a vivid portrayal of the landscape, and chart geographical features, towns and transport routes with meticulous accuracy. The extensive alpha-numeric index of 55,000 names includes geographical features, as well as provinces, towns and cities.show more
