NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- We have all suffered through bad
vacations: tourist traps, endless lines, rundown hotels, and the worst
airports on earth. The world abounds in dismal destinations, and it's just as
important to know the hellholes to avoid, as it is to be familiar with the
most "idyllic" spots -- especially when some don't deserve their reputations.
Often it is not until you arrive that you find out that your stunning lakeside
hotel is really perched on the beachless shores of a swampy puddle.
In DON'T GO THERE! (November 11, 2008; $17.95; Rodale Paperback), the
follow-up to his New York Times bestseller, The Complete Travel Detective
Bible, NBC's Today show Travel Editor Peter Greenberg offers his expert,
hard-won knowledge of where not to go, when not to go, and why you never
should go. Readers will learn:
-- The cities and countries with the most pollution, the highest crime
rates, and the worst disease rates.
-- Highways to steer clear of, unless you like being in accidents.
-- The most dangerous theme parks.
-- Hotels that are consistently cited for bedbugs, Legionnaires disease,
and overall filth.
-- The stinkiest cities, be it from manure, hog farms, or cereal
-- Where not to ride a bike for fear of sinkholes.
-- Airports to avoid at all costs and the runways that gives pilots
permanent bragging rights.
-- The airlines that have the worst safety record and the trains that
derail the most.
-- And so much more ...
During these tough economic times, this is a must-have resource to save
thousands of travelers from vacation tragedy and needless expense. DON'T GO
THERE is now available wherever books are sold.
