BBC Travel tells awe-inspiring, immersive travel stories to curious, passionate readers who want to learn about the world as much as they want to travel there. We are fuelled by a global community of editors and authors who provide a trusted perspective on the world around us. We are independent, impartial and honest.

Forget baggage fees, flight delays and blackout dates. This is a site that celebrates the experience of travel; that highlights the people, places and cultures that make this world so wonderfully diverse and amazing. Our inaugural 50 Reasons to #LoveTheWorld package earned an estimated 141 million impressions on Twitter and won a 2015 Silver Lowell Thomas award.

BBC Travel tells you about places you’ve never been and shows you a new side to places you think you know. With an open mind, an eye for the surprising and a global voice, we inspire you to fall in love with the world. Madly.
