LONDON (2 February 2023) — The March issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The cover story this month focuses on India by rail. Snaking from the beaches of the south to the tea estates of the north, India’s expansive railway network — with numerous trains famed for their charm and character — offers travellers the chance to discover places planes could never reach.

This issue also comes with a 100-page USA cities guide, which covers everything from the rejuvenation of Miami and the urban wineries of Portland to the coffee hangouts of Seattle and the legendary music of Memphis, Nashville, New York and Detroit.
