That is a tricky question, there are so many great places each for different reasons.
For an amazing culture, friendly people, unique and colourful architecture and excellent trekking - Bhutan.
For kind people, a serene atmosphere and breaking cultural stereotypes- Oman
For hiking - Tasmania with Patagonia as a strong second place contender
For beaches - Mozambique and Australia tied
For game parks - South Africa
For pristine nature - Antarctica

Hi Shahad,
Thanks for your question. I'll answer it from two perspectives.

Beginner reading level: The book would be fine for someone with grade seven and up reading level.

Beginner traveller: There is a mix of travel styles in the book, some of which will be perfect for a beginner and some which you might want to avoid. You can pick and choose what seems appealing to your comfort level. For example, a tour through Namibia and Botswana would be ideal for a first time visit to Africa. Other useful sections for a new traveller, depending on your interests, would to the forts of Oman, game parks in South Africa, Ephesus in Turkey or hiking in Patagonia or Grindelwald. However, I would not suggest a beginner traveller go to the temple of Prasat Preah Vihear in northern Cambodia as it is tricky to get to on your own. Also, it is not a good time to visit Sana'a, Yemen given the current military situation.

Hope that helps your decision

This is such a timely book, you won’t see it’s timeliness until the end, but it is a very worthwhile read. It makes you think about your own interactions and how we, as a people, can be better - so much better.
