Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet started out as a small independent operation, as Tony and Maureen Wheeler set off on an adventure of a lifetime, across Europe, Asia and all the way to Australia.  They published an account of their trip, and after the book’s incredible success, Lonely Planet was born.  

Lonely Planet is committed to providing editorial independence and trustworthy advice for the independent traveller, making it the first choice of travel guide for innumerable adventurers globally.  With a copy of one of these guides in your hand, the world is your oyster.
