Ghost Towns Of The World (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

It's one thing to share space with a haunted hotel. It's quite another to encounter an entirely abandoned town, perfectly and oddly preserved.

In the new book "Secret Journeys Of A Lifetime," due out Tuesday, National Geographic examines 10 such eerie towns.

The coffee table book details journeys far and wide, breaking down NatGeo's favorite ghost towns that are worth a visit. Some, like Italy's Herculaneum, are more famous than others. But, with this being Halloween month, every spooky town will enjoy this time in the spotlight.

And, if these 10 have your interest piqued, check out "Visiting 10 Of The Most Interesting Abandoned Places On Earth."
