In addition to 600 full color photos, destinations in 28 new countries, and everything else that’s packed into the new edition of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, the book now has a brand new home on the web, for when armchair travelers want to engage in some double-click traveling: 1000places.com. There, you can preview a few of the places featured in the book, get a sneak peak at the app, download the aforementioned indexes, order the book, and more.
Elsewhere on the web, we’ve been engaging in bracketology for the first time as we follow HuffPost Travel’s Ultimate Places to See Before You Die Sweet 16 Challenge, now in round three. Sixteen destinations were culled from the (already exclusive!) 1000, which voters then winnowed down to 8, and now 4. There’s still a chance to vote in this round before the finals start tomorrow, at which point the one place to see before you die to rule them all will be selected. Don’t weep for the losing destinations, though: we’re guessing Moscow’s Red Square and Ipanima Beach in Brazil will continue to appear on plenty of travel wish lists despite their crushing defeats.
