One year ago today, BBC Travel embarked on a journey, offering insider advice, unexpected and inspiring travel ideas and an intimate understanding of local culture that inspires you to engage more deeply with the world.
David Allan, BBC Travel’s Editorial Director,
launch to a “train whistle, a call to embark on trips to the fun, exotic,
and relaxing destinations you always wanted to see or return to the
destinations you already love”.
It has been an incredibly exciting year.
We’ve added more than 50 destinations and themes, we started a blog, The
Passport, and we feel honoured to be part of such a vibrant, intelligent Facebook
We’ve published hundreds of incredible stories
over the last year. To celebrate BBC Travel’s one year anniversary and get you
up to speed if you recently started following us, we compiled a highlight reel of
editor’s picks from around the globe:
Africa and the Middle East
Asia and the Pacific
