Cover Story: Our lead feature this month takes us back in time, burrows underground and treks out to the remotest corners of the globe in search of ancient civilisations and lost cities.

Destinations: We unwrap Sri Lanka’s newfound serenity while coming to terms with its tempestuous past; take a sand-blasted desert trek in Morocco; and discover the heart of Guatemala.

Cities: Elsewhere in the issue, check out where to bed down in Antwerp, Belgium’s capital of cool; live like a local in Prague; the Southern cuisine of Charleston; what to do in Bangkok; and how to get the best out of Ecuador’s lofty capital, Quito.

Smart Traveller: Discover Stockholm’s best restaurants, hotels under £100 in Toronto, Nevada’s Burning Man festival. Plus, why you should go to Edinburgh, columns and check lists too.

Author Series: Rob Lilwall on China.
Travel Talk: Ask the experts about your travel dilemmas.

the future.

National Geographic Traveler (USA) is the world’s most widely read travel magazine, created in 1984. It championed sustainable travel before it was cool and, eight times annually, celebrates journeys that are about place, experience, culture, authenticity, living like the locals and great photography. It makes a distinction between tourism and travel and stresses inquisitive, not acquisitive, trips. It employs storytelling and outstanding photography to inspire readers to pick up and go, eschewing fashion and fluff in favour of articles that offer a strong sense of place, inspiring narratives that make readers take trips, and solid service information to help them plan those trips.
