Summary
This second edition takes readers to even more curious and unusual destinations, with over one hundred 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. And a three-panel gatefold with a full-color map augmented by an around-the-world travel itinerary. More a cabinet of curiosities than traditional guidebook, Atlas Obscura revels in the unexpected, the overlooked, the bizarre, and the mysterious."--Dust jacket flap
