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.

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.

In 2016, BBC Travel won the Gold Lowell Thomas Award for best travel journalism website and a Silver award for its Travel Pioneers series. And, our inaugural 50 Reasons to #LoveTheWorld package earned an estimated 141 million impressions on Twitter and won a 2015 Silver Lowell Thomas award.
