About this book

Bestselling guide to all 981 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Fully updated to include the latest sites added to the World Heritage List in June 2013. The List is managed by the World Heritage Committee and each site is judged under strict criteria – only the world's most spectacular and extraordinary sites make it on to the List.

UNESCO World Heritage sites includes some of the most famous places in the world, such as the ancient Nabatean city of Petra in Jordan, the legendary Acropolis in Athens, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and Machu Picchu, the 'Lost City of the Incas', in Peru.

The World's Heritage includes the 19 sites added to the List by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in June 2013, including Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe (Germany), Red Bay Basque Whaling Station (Canada) and Golestan Palace (Iran).

Review from a previous edition:

"As any self respecting monument knows, you haven't made it until you've garnered UNESCO status. From the Acropolis to the lesser known El Jem Coliseum, this gives you a tanalising taste of all 878 World Heritage sites."
- Wanderlust
