Lonely Planet’s The Cities Book: A Journey Through the Best Cities in the World is back in a new and fully updated second edition.

This book does capture some of the most unique cites that every traveller would want to visit and in this encyclopaedic hardback tome explores 200 of the world’s most dynamic cities with insight and inspiration, illustrated with 750 awe-inspiring photographs.

To get travellers inspired, The Cities Book also includes top five best cities for bookworms, LGBT travellers, skylines, art galleries, coffee, museums, accessibility, cycling, architecture, wine, music and more.
