Did you know there’s a rainbow-colored national park in China, or an island overrun by poisonous snakes in Brazil? How about a warehouse of lost luggage in Alabama, or crystal caves in Chihuahua?
From abandoned amusement parks to crooked forests, underwater museums to crawling rocks, Lonely Planet’s Secret Marvels of the World: 360 Extraordinary Places You Never Knew Existed and How to Find Them (Lonely Planet / $24.99 / August 15, 2017) showcases the most mysterious, mesmerizing and bizarre spots on Earth.
For the adventurous and interminably curious, Secret Marvels of the World is a compendium of the planet’s weirdest, most wonderful and intriguing sights that have to be seen to be believed.
The book can be viewed (media only) in its entirety here. There are 10 images here available for media use, and excerpts from the book, including a number of lists like the Top 10 Most Bizarre Disaster Sites, Unsettling Hotels and Tremendous Toilets, by request.
We would love if you wanted to feature a slideshow, review or excerpt from the book. I’m happy to coordinate an interview with the authors as well. Please let me know if you have any questions or anything else.
