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 new, unexpected and emotionally engaging stories from a global community of editors, writers, photographers and video journalists who provide a trusted perspective on the world of travel. We are independent, impartial and honest.

In a complex world of negative news and xenophobia at one extreme, and top 10 lists and substance-less roundups at the other, we’ve lost the experience and sheer joy of travel. BBC Travel aims to provide an antidote by celebrating the people, places and cultures that make this world so wonderfully diverse and amazing. We tell readers about places they’ve never been and show them a new side to places they think they know. With an open mind, an eye for the surprising and a global voice, we inspire our readers to fall in love with the world – and humanity.

For the second year in a row, BBC Travel has won the Gold Lowell Thomas Award for best travel journalism website, and a Gold award for The US National Parks turn 100 special project. Previous accolades include Silver awards for our Travel Pioneers series in 2016 and 50 Reasons to #LoveTheWorld package in 2015.
