100 Places You Will Never Visit: The World's Most Secret Locations

Staff Review: "100 Places You Will Never Visit: The World's Most Secret Locations" by Daniel Smith

★★★★★

This utterly fascinating travel guide describes and illustrates sites us normal people will NEVER be allowed to visit. If you do try and visit them, you will end up being warned off by gun-toting guards, carted off to jail or killed! The sites include super-secret military and intelligence bases/sites around the world such as Area 51 and Diego Garcia, financial sites like Fort Knox, disaster sites like Chernobyl and Fukushima, religious sites like the Chapel of the Ark of the Covenant and a smorgasbord of 'don't-go-there' locales like Snake Island which has one deadly Lancehead Viper every 10 square feet!  It's one fantastic, wonderfully entertaining read.
