5. The Beach by Alex Garland
This is the perfect summer read as it is an easy read, hard to put down, and the plot never stops moving forward. The novel starts off fairly innocuously, with the main character, Richard, seeking out a secret beach with a couple of fellow travelers that he meets in Bangkok after receiving a map from a strange Scottish man who kills himself within the first few pages. But once they reach the beach, things start very slowly, very subtly spinning into something very close to insanity.
It will ultimately make you pack your bag and travel as it was said in the book:
“If I’d learnt one thing from travelling, it was that the way to get things done was to go ahead and do them. Don’t talk about going to Borneo. Book a ticket, get a visa, pack a bag, and it just happens.”
6. The Art of Travel by Alain de Botton
The best description of this book would be “perfect travel companion” because is very easy to read but in the same time is truly intelligent and inspiring. It is afresh and philosophical idea about why we travel.
