I wrote Searching for Unique to help fellow travellers cut through the myriad of travel guides, blogs and brochures and focus on the best destinations from around the world—those hidden gems that still elude most tourists.
Instead of trying to pick a country and then figure out what to do there, Searching for Unique covers multiple countries and groups each destination by theme. So, as a reader if you feel like an active holiday then you can look at the Wilderness Treks chapter or if you prefer the cultural experience of a local festival, then the Rare Festivals chapter may suit your interest.
