Experiential travel has always been at the heart of Rough Guides. For over 30 years, our authors have been sharing travel experiences that inspire readers to push themselves out of their comfort zones and to immerse themselves in a destination’s culture and traditions. 

Rough Guides’ bestselling inspirational coffee-table book draws upon the insider knowledge of in-the-know writers to share the 1000 ultimate travel experiences across the globe. Make the Most of your Time on Earth is a handpicked curation of personal recommendations, from retracing Odysseus’s footsteps on Mljet and hippo-spotting in the Bijagós Islands, to wild camping on the Arabian Peninsula and defying gravity at China’s Hanging Temple. It might even be something as simple as walking among Hockney’s landscapes on the Yorkshire Wolds Way, or eating among locals in the perfect setting: the definitive gelato in Rome or a mopane worm in Zimbabwe. Every one is special, and authentic, and – above all – inspiring. 

This fourth edition has been fully revised, with a brand-new design and a collection of high-quality colour photographs spanning beautiful national parks, captivating wildlife and dramatic landscapes. Entries are divided into regions, so you can dip in and out of the different parts of the world you’re interested in, whether that’s a remote island in the Philippines, a stunning Swedish archipelago or an off-the-beaten-track pocket of Saskatchewan. Lively and engaging text captures the essence of the experience, while essential “Need to Know” sections at the end of each chapter make it easy for you to plan your trip. 

Packed full of ideas and take-you-there photography, Make the Most of your Time on Earth is pure escapism for active travellers and armchair fantasists alike.

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

In the extreme southwest of Virgin Gorda, a bizarre land- and seascape of volcanic boulders known as The Baths offers a prehistoric twist on the archetypal Caribbean beach.

BOLIVIA

At over 6,300m tall, this ice-crowned mountain deity shadows every cobbled corner of town, its glacial heights all the more fantastical amid the bucolic setting, and one reason why the place remains popular among climbers and trekkers.

MYANMAR

Crowned with a slender gold stupa, the Rock is a huge granite boulder perched rakishly on a natural stone plinth that Burmese Buddhists believe has been held in place by a few extra-strong strands of Buddha’s hair through centuries, cyclones, and earthquakes.
