On sale now: the (150) Reasons to Travel issue

I can’t believe how quickly our annual bumper Reasons to Travel issue has come around again, but its arrival is always welcome here in the office.

While magazines are in the business of tracking what readers are thinking, liking and dreaming of, this issue is about predicting the next big thing, whether it’s destinations that we think are ripe for discovery (check out our 2018 Hot List starting on page 114, the new European hot spots to plan for on page 92, or the intriguing Mallorca, Oman and Greenland, pages 86, 134 and 142 respectively), how you will be consuming your travel (anyone for a starter cruise? – page 36) or simply the latest hotel openings, travel books, and newly minted sights that are going to get you off the couch and on the road over the next 12 months.


In fact, every last city, tour, restaurant, museum, fashion accessory and far-flung locale featured in this magazine counts as a reason to travel – a staggering 150 in total from cover to cover. And we could have kept going, putting forward more destinations and innovations to watch out for; there is just so much going on in this world of ours.

All the more reason to stick with us over the next 365 days as we continue to deliver the ultimate in travel to aspire to and inspire you, in the pages of the magazine (find out how to subscribe on page 102 and you could win a trip for two to Sri Lanka and the Maldives flying SriLankan Airlines business class) and online . Enjoy!
