Covering festivals, foliage displays, harvest celebrations, summer and winter sports and activities, local markets, animal migrations, and more, this lavish, beautifully photographed book is both inspiring and useful. In-depth site descriptions, illuminating sidebars, and tons of insider tips will inspire you to plan your next getaway during a destination's showcase period-whether it's Christmas in New York, complete with ice-skating at Rockefeller Center and neighborhood holiday markets; springtime in Japan, when cherry blossoms create clouds of pink around picture-perfect medieval castles; summer's midnight sun in St. Petersburg, Russia, during the city's annual White Night festivities; or autumn in Maine, when the highlight of Acadia National Park's Night Sky Festival takes you atop Cadillac Mountain to gaze up at a universe of sparkling stars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This photo-driven global destination guide will have you eager to pack your bags every season...Lake Como in the spring, Provence in summer, Thailand in the fall, the Bahamas in winter. They all sound dreamy from where we're sitting." --USA Today

"If "Four Seasons of Travel" doesn't give you wanderlust, see a doctor immediately; you're probably half dead. National Geographic's look at destinations worldwide is a symphony in four parts: winter, spring, summer and fall...Even the most experienced travelers will find fresh travel ideas in this vivid exploration of the best destinations on the planet." --Los Angeles Times

"It seems as though every year, in time for the holiday season, National Geographic releases at least one tempting, beautiful coffee book...Suggestions span every taste and every part of the world. The book also includes a collection of Top 10 lists, a calendar of events and commentary from such luminaries as Cokie Roberts, Christopher Buckley and Alec Baldwin (really!)." --Washington Post

"For the armchair traveler or the vacation planner." --AP Travel

"It will get you off the couch and on the road, no matter the weather." --ForeWord Reviews

"All in all, it's a delightful book to dream on, filled with inspirational photos and just-long-enough text to tickle the old wanderlust bone. If you have an avid traveler in your family, this could well be the perfect holiday gift for them." --Frommers.com

"It seems as though every year, in time for the holiday season, National Geographic releases at least one tempting, beautiful coffee book. And every year, we bite. This year's offering: Four Seasons of Travel. Suggestions span every taste and every part of the world. The book also includes a collection of Top 10 lists, a calendar of events and commentary from such luminaries as Cokie Roberts, Christopher Buckley and Alec Baldwin (really!). -The Washington Post

"This look into the world shares how to be at the right place at the right time for vacationing at more than 400 locations across the United States and around the globe." --Deseret News

"Who better to produce a travel-related coffee-table book than National Geographic? ... The writing is informative, but it mostly serves to provide a spacer between the almost uniformly striking photography." -St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Presented with National Geographic's characteristically stylish and high quality reproduction, this book sets out to whet aspirational travellers' appetites to visit the most beautiful, historic and inspiring places around the world...each season has enticing offerings, accompanied by sumptuous and evocative photography...comprehensive but retains a light touch, making reading the book from cover to cover a pleasure. While this thoughtfully compiled volume will inspire many a trip, whether for dreaming or serious planning, this book is a versatile, beautiful acquisition for the avid photographer or traveller." --Outdoor Photography
