"A wanderlust-whetting cabinet of curiosities on paper."— New York Times

Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, Atlas Obscura is a phenomenon of a travel book that shot to the top of bestseller lists when it was first published and changed the way we think about the world, expanding our sense of how strange and marvelous it really is.

This second edition takes readers to even more curious and unusual destinations, with more than 100 new places, dozens and dozens of new photographs, and two very special features: twelve city guides, covering Berlin, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Cairo, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Moscow, New York City, Paris, Shanghai, and Tokyo. Plus a foldout map with a dream itinerary for the ultimate around-the-world road trip. More a cabinet of curiosities than traditional guidebook, Atlas Obscura revels in the unexpected, the overlooked, the bizarre, and the mysterious. Here are natural wonders, like the dazzling glowworm caves in New Zealand, or a baobob tree in South Africa so large it has a pub inside where 15 people can sit and drink comfortably. Architectural marvels, including the M. C. Escher–like stepwells in India. Mind-boggling events, like the Baby-Jumping Festival in Spain—and no, it's not the babies doing the jumping, but masked men dressed as devils who vault over rows of squirming infants.

Every page gets to the very core of why humans want to travel in the first place: to be delighted and disoriented, uprooted from the familiar and amazed by the new. With its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, and new city guides, it is a book you can open anywhere and be transported. But proceed with caution: It's almost impossible not to turn to the next entry, and the next, and the next.

These books are very fun and I have used them before going to a destination to find something different than what you normally find. They also have a kids version of the book that I enjoy reading and my kids get a kick out of. $2 is worth it IMO if you like to travel...or should I say used to like to travel Smilie

I have a photo published in this book and I'm credited as a contributor in the back! I agree with others that say this is a good coffee table book. Most (if not all) of the content is already available online on their website.

Agreed that this would be much better in physical form. In e-book form, you'd be much better off just exploring their website. It has everything from the book and much more.

I picked up the 1st edition as a gift and bought the eBook for myself. Great book about strange (and sometime macabre) places in the world.

Anyone else who thought this might have something to do with Harry Potter? Yeah, no? Me neither...
