The next in Lonely Planet's Spotter's Guide series reveals more than 100 locations of classic moments from famous films and TV series. How many scenes can you tick off? Films featured range from La Dolce Vita in Rome to Gladiator in Morocco. and TV series' settings include Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik and The Bridge in Scandinavia, all selected by a film critic. Find the locations near you and be the star of your own show! The movies take you places: cinema is a mode of transport. In just 90 minutes, you can be whisked all the way around the globe - perhaps with a dotted red line marking your progress on a map as you go. Some films take you even farther, out of this world and to other galaxies far, far away. And conversely, there are some places that can transport you into the world of a movie. If you want to feel like James Bond, try going to James Bond Island. In a Holly Golightly mood? Have a danish pastry and some coffee outside Tiffany's in Manhattan. Or want to feel like Rocky? Then run up the steps to the Philadelphia Museum and put your hands in the air like a champ when you get to the top. This book is about the real-world places that provided the backdrops and settings for some of our most memorable collective dreams. Some of these locations played themselves and others were dressed up to look like somewhere else. But they all added texture and colour and weight to the visions of our best TV- and film-makers. Who needs CGI when the real world looks as fabulous and varied as this?

This book offers a critical account of the historical evolution of tourism through the identification and discussion of key turning points. Based on these considerations, future turning points are identified and evaluated. The volume provides a continuum between the past and future of tourism. Its central themes are the globalisation of tourism; the development of destinations; the importance of mobility and transport; the development of the modern hotel; the diversification of niche tourism and the conceptualisation of the past and future of tourism using the evolutionary paradigm in future studies. The core findings of the book provide the first perspective on how the history of tourism will shape its future.

Loos with incredible views, lavish lavatories, outstanding outhouses - all are featured in this pictorial guide to the world's most stunning toilets. Whether they're high-tech or arty, amusing or amazing, each toilet has a photo and a description of its location. More than 100 restrooms to remember are featured, from Antarctica to Zambia. As any experienced traveller knows, you can tell a whole lot about a place by its bathrooms. Whatever you prefer to call them - lavatory, loo, bog, khasi, thunderbox, dunny, bathroom, restroom, washroom or water closet - toilets are a (sometimes opaque, often wide-open) window into the secret soul of a destination. It's not just how well they're looked after that's revealing, but where they are positioned and the way they've been conceptualised, designed and decorated. Toilets so often transcend their primary function of being a convenience to become a work of art in their own right, or to make a cultural statement about the priorities, traditions and values of the venues, locations and communities they serve. The lavatory is a great leveller - everyone feels the call of nature, every day - but being ubiquitous doesn't make it uniform. Around the planet (and beyond it, see page 12), toilets have followed various evolutionary pathways to best suit their environment. In these pages you'll find porcelain pews with fantastic views, audacious attention-seeking urban outhouses, and eco-thrones made from sticks and stones in all sorts of wild settings, from precipitous mountain peaks to dusty deserts. So, wherever you're reading this, we hope you're sitting comfortably.

Packed with facts, maps and photos, it's a fun and fascinating introduction to the sublime, the strange and everything in between.
