The Rough Guide to Sri Lanka (P/E 3576)
Trending price New. People who bought this also bought. Non-Fiction Books. It is one of the most isolated landmasses of comparable proportions anywhere in the tropics. Its primary attraction is its 'postcard-perfect beaches, turquoise lagoons, whispering palm plantations, craggy islets and snorkel-friendly coral reefs'.
The book adds: 'For adventurous travellers, however, Madagascar really comes into its own away from the beaches. This immense tropical island is sometimes referred to as the Eighth Continent on account of its unique biodiversity, which incorporates an estimated 10, animal and plant species found nowhere else in the world'.

And its big attraction is the impossibly picturesque Logarska dolina Logar Valley , pictured. The guide says: 'Formed during the Ice Age, the 7km-long U-shaped glaciated valley features a level, green valley floor covered with flower-speckled meadows and beech woods, enclosed by step-like cliff sides riddled with glacial boulders, waterfalls, springs, streams and a majestic wreath of jagged grey peaks, most of which top 2,m'. The scattering of limestone pinnacles jutting out of the smooth waters of Halong Bay in Vietnam is an incredible sight, says the book, adding that dropping anchor to explore small islands and caves is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The guide adds that the best junk boats have private cabins and serve gourmet food and in the early morning you can pull back the curtains to watch the sunlight dancing on the emerald green water. A cheaper way to explore the area is to take the ferry from Halong City Tuan Chau Island to Cat Ba Island, pictured, which 'reveals a glimpse of the majesty of Halong Bay at a fraction of the cost'.
An aerial view of Cape Town, which the guide says is one of Africa's 'most beautiful and most visited cities'. The book adds there is an array of high-octane activities to take part in from paragliding to kite surfing and partying. Away from the thrills, there are 'fabulous beaches, rolling vineyards and fine museums'. And despite the high tourist numbers, hype and expense, the book says it lives up to all expectations.

Once a mountain as high as Kilimanjaro, about three million years ago Ngorongoro blew itself to bits, covering the Serengeti in ash while the crater floor sank into the mountain. Today, the rim stands at an impressive 2,m. The book describes the capital of Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, as a 'shining beacon on the desert's edge'. And that's partly because all public buildings, including the Wedding Palace, pictured, must be clad in white marble, ideally Italian Carrara.
Former Mongol leader Genghis Khan has his face plastered on everything from banknotes to cigarette packets in Mongolia. And the Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue, 54km 33 miles from the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar, pays homage to him with a 'modern, man-made structure of titanic proportions'. It is the largest equestrian statue in the world at 44 metres tall and made using tonnes of stainless steel.

According to the book, you can climb to the head of the horse for panoramas over the surrounding countryside. It adds: 'The visitor centre contains an idiosyncratic museum with traditional Mongolian costumes and portraits of the Great Khans'. Only three of the great Pyramids of Giza have withstood the ravages of time, and according to the book, no other monuments are so instantly recognised around the world.
However, the guide adds that 'comparatively few foreigners realise that there are at least further pyramids spread across 70km of desert, from the outskirts of Cairo to the edge of the Fayoum Oasis'. The Monument Valley, pictured, straddles the state line of Arizona and Utah and is the 'classic southwest American landscape of stark sandstone buttes and forbidding pinnacles of rock, poking from an endless expanse of drifting red sands'.
