January sees us begin the new year with a sunny book to banish the winter blues. To be in with a chance of winning a free copy, read on…
In the Maldives outsiders used to be banned from islands not officially endorsed as tourist resorts, but now a thousand sandy shores can be visited in this remote nation deep in the Indian Ocean; the flattest country on Earth.
Away from the five-star hotels and beyond luxury hideaways, author Tom Chesshyre travels to see the real, unexplored Maldives, skirting around the archipelagos periphery, staying at simple guesthouses, and using cargo ships and ferries. In his brilliant new book Gatecrashing Paradise he reveals that beyond the glossy brochures lies an almost undiscovered country that is brimming with life, yet also a paradise teetering on the brink of trouble.
This is island-hopping for the twenty-first century, sailing around 600 miles of the most beautiful islands and atolls on Earth, often to communities that have not seen an outsider for decades, …and gatecrashing the odd posh hotel.
‘As the first Maldivian DIY traveller tale, Chesshyre’s cheerful book will motivate many freewheeling followers.’ —The Times
