Summary
Experience 60 of the world's greatest adventures on water from sailing the Nile by felucca and cruising the Canadian Arctic, to exploring Pitcairn Island by cargo ship. With detailed accounts of each route, beautiful photos and practical tips on how to plan your own voyage, Amazing Boat Journeys will help you discover a more rewarding way of travelling. From the seafaring Polynesians to the Chinese Age of Discovery, travel by water shaped the world. That same spirit of exploration compels Lonely Planet writers today to travel by cargo freighter and fishing vessel to the world's most remote islands; to hop onto mailboats in the Bahamas; or to experience life on a historic sailpowered windjammer. These journeys are eclectic and wideranging, from the wonder of a glassbottomed boat ride through Florida springs to the ease of a thatchroofed kettuvallam exploring Kerala's famed backwaters. Oldfashioned paddlesteamers ply the length of the Mississippi in the style of the 1800s, and cruise ships on the Yangtze feature enthusiastic karaoke in Mandarin. Offthebeatenpath cruises include Antarctica and Papua New Guinea. On the opposite end of the spectrum from a weekslong journey over open seas is the charm of seeing a city from the water, whether crossing Victoria Harbour via Hong Kong's classic Star Ferry, viewing the banks of London from the Thames, or traversing Bangkok on the Chao Phraya River. Each trip includes authoritative commentary, aweinspiring photography, and details of life on board the vessel, similar routes, and how to make the trip happen
