The world's hidden wonders

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:07 pm on 24 January 2017

So many travellers these days like to go off the beaten track.  Atlas Obscura: An Explorer's Guide to the World's Hidden Wonders, goes way, way off the beaten track with a guide to some of the most unusual places in the world.

It features places such as the house built entirely out of newspapers, a museum of artwork made of human hair, the quietest room in the world and even some places in New Zealand.

Authors Dylan Thuras and Kiwi born Ella Morton encourage us ignore the generic and take a new view of the world around us.
