Amazing Places Cost Nothing (BOOK EXCERPT)

Herbert Ypma, the creator of the HIP Hotels series (that stands for highly individual places) is at it again, this time with "Amazing Places Cost Nothing," a new book which states, essentially, that the world's most amazing places don't cost all that much to see.

The book highlights thirty "undiscovered" properties around the globe--properties Ypma found on his own travels--and details what makes them special.

Herewith, some highlights.
