The 21 greatest travel books of all time

To mark 60 years since the release of On the Road, we've picked our favourite travel books of all time. Where else to start? This book should come with a health warning aimed particularly at those in their formative years: proceed with caution, you may never be able to settle in one place again. And you might take up hitch-hiking. Along the way there's jazz, poetry and drugs.

'On the Road,' Jack Kerouac

26 Best Travel Books Ever Written

Today literally every square inch of the planet has been mapped out, if not every inch identified for various reasons by Google. But that was not always the case and even as late as the s and bleeding into the early s, National Geographic was publishing articles about places and people no one had ever seen or heard of before. Before now and the ubiquity of all information, we relied on the adventurers and explorers, and even just the wanderers, to tell us about life beyond our horizons. Their magical and inspiring books illuminated and animated small and large corners of the Earth, from as little as one street in Midaq Alley , to everywhere in The Atlas of the World. Some were first, and best, experienced as a child, and widened our eyes even further. Some soothed and dissipated our cynicism and world-weary selves as adults.

I love talking about travel books. Because part of the tool belt of any traveler is a good book. Additionally, reading travel books helps you learn about the destinations you are visiting. The more you know about a place, the more you can understand a place. I am a voracious reader and have even started a book club on this website to share all the books I read. A books about following your dreams, this is one of the most-read books in recent history.
