Win with Lonely Planet
10 copies of Offbeat to be won!

Lonely Planet’s latest guidebook, Offbeat, is full of alternative destinations to take you a million miles away from crowded tourist traps. For a limited time Lonely Planet is giving away 10 copies of Offbeat to Charitable Traveller Magazine readers! Enter the prize draw today!

Lonely Planet’s newest guidebook is right up our street. Called Offbeat, it reveals the top 100 places to visit if you’re a fan of discovering the under the radar alternatives to some of the world’s busiest places. Not only does it give plenty of inspiration for future trips, it reminds us that by visiting these quieter places, we can make a real difference to the local communities too. And just because they’re offbeat, does’t mean they’re hard to reach – many of them are easier to access than you might think!

Split into continents, Offbeat includes everything you need to avoid the crowds, from practical travel information to one-of-a-kind crowd-free experiences and unique insights from local voices. 

We’ve already added many of these destinations to our travel wish-list, and our highlights to visit include adventuring through the Lost Sierra in California, urban exploration through the canal city of Delft, and lapping up Ericeira’s beaches in Portugal. And instead of booking that standard city break to Paris, France, Madrid, Spain, or Tallinn, Estonia, we’re opting for the alternatives of Lyon, Caceres and Tartu.

Lonely Planet’s Offbeat is out now in hardback for £24.99, available where all good books are sold.
