Summary from Goodreads.
Wonders of the World showcases some of Earths most stunning landscapes, stunning engineering feats and ancient civilisations ruins. You will want to take your time slowly flicking through the pages of this, as each photo is mesmerising.
Wonders of the World is split into 5 different chapters: Africa and the Middle East; Europe; The Americas; Asia; and The Pacific. Each chapter makes sure to showcase notable places and also some that you may not have heard of.
Will mainly a photography showcase, each photo does have a brief description of what the photo is, where it is located and a mini blurb about the photo. This is very useful to see how close some of these attractions are to each other, as well as how ancient some of Earths wonders are.
Honestly, Wonders of the World is a good travel inspiration book. If you are looking to travel and want to see how stunning Earth is, then if you randomly pick a page you instantly have a place that you would surely love to visit.
The prefect coffee table book that people will love to browse through.
