Eight fantasy destinations that would be great to visit

At the B&N Reads blog Nicole Hill tagged eight fantastical destinations she'd like to visit this summer, including:
London Below (Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman)

Gaiman’s sensory wonderland London Below has much of the charm of London Above, with the added bonus of intrigue, oddities, and antiquities. Its central attraction, the Floating Market, is enchanting and mesmerizing, as you might expect of a bazaar hawking truckloads of magic baubles and all manner of kitschy ephemera. The market’s rotating locations also allow you an inside look at tourist attractions like Westminster Abbey without all the selfie sticks.

Neverwhere is among Monique Alice's top seven books for readers who love Haruki Murakami.
