Fascinating print books in Lonely Planet's top sellers list

Not everyone is in favour of downloading Lonely Planet guide books & chapters to their phone or ipad. So, here's a collection of print books in the top sellers list.

Don’t forget the offer of 3 for 2 books across all formats, plus free delivery on orders over £25/€35.


Lonely Planet's Food Lover's Guide to the World (Paperback)

When we travel, it’s often love at first bite. Food Lover’s Guide to the World presents a lifetime of eating experiences that will lead you from one end of the globe to the other. Take your taste buds on a tour around the world and cook up your next great culinary adventure.





The World (Lonely Planet's Guide to)

A Travellerʼs Guide to the Planet. Weʼve distilled 40 years of travel know-how into the fi rst guidebook to our entire planet. In this ultimate A to Z, every country has a detailed map, essential facts, inspirational images and its mustsee highlights. From now on, every journey starts here.
Youʼre holding the whole world in your hands. Adventure and inspirational experiences await around every corner, so what’s stopping you? Go forth and explore.


Lonely Planet's Beautiful World (Hardback pictorial)

Journey to the planet’s most magnificent places with this thought-provoking portrait of our world. See it as you’ve never seen it before and renew your relationship with the place we call home.
The images in this book will take you to places far and wide, the kinds of places that you might never visit but that you can perhaps put on that “If ” list we all have tucked away. These places are surprising, remarkable, remote, familiar … dive in and marvel over the undeniable fact; it is a beautiful world.

You Only Live Once

You Only Live Once is not just another collection of bucketlist of big-ticket items. We’ve all heard about Venice and, yes, it is probably worth going to Italy to see its waterways. Instead, hopefully you’ll take away something more from this book: a resolve to live life to the fullest, to add a dash of joie de vivre to every day.
What all the ideas contained within have in common is that they’re starting points. They will reignite long-forgotten desires – to learn an instrument or a language – or spark new and unexpected ambitions: why shouldn’t you move to Provence for a year?

When you know what’s stopping you, you can start working on a solution. Perhaps this book will be as useful in helping you identify obstacles as will be for refining your month’s or your year’s travel experiences. Then it’s time to turn to Lonely Planet’s extensive travel resources and begin planning the rest of your life.
