The mystery and majesty of tea is explored when Joseph spotlights the culture of this royal beverage on Taiwan. During this adventure he travels to Lujang to join in the creation of traditional tea snacks, visits an Assam tea farm in Nantou, participates in a formal tea ceremony in Tainan and tops it all off with a visit to the annual Lantern Festival in Chiayi. Along the way he meets the masters of Taiwan’s pottery, tin-sculpting and lantern-making arts.

Answering the difficult questions that today’s savvy travelers ask—where’s the best place for a beach getaway in March? What are my options if June is the only time I can take a vacation? I’m getting married in November, where would be the perfect place for a honeymoon?—this is the must-have book for anyone planning a vacation or a longer adventure.

Consultant Editor Joseph Rosendo and a team of travel experts have combined inspirational narrative with sumptuous photography to bring over 130 global destinations to life, from snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef or cruising the Galapagos Islands to marveling at the mighty Victoria Falls or grazing at the Galway Oyster Festival. Domestic getaways aren’t overlooked, either: the fall foliage in Northeast Vermont is radiant in September; the funky, sunny Florida Keys are an ideal February getaway and both the jaw-dropping California Coast and lush Kaua’i make for fantastic October trips.
