Cover Story: Where have you got your sights set on this year? What will make or break your next escape? Take some travel inspiration from our cover story The Cool List this month — a rundown of places our travel writers will be covering in 2015.

Destinations: We plot a course to the home of tea, Darjeeling, in search of India’s finest brew; and cruise down the mighty Mekong — the lifeblood of Southeast Asia — from the intriguing port of Phnom Penh to the spirited streets of Ho Chi Minh City. Our South Africa feature, meanwhile, takes us into the bush and to the domain of some of the greatest wildlife viewing in all of Africa — Greater Kruger.

Cities: Elsewhere, we reveal the best drinking dens, digs and foodie haunts in Palma and Rome, and we scour the hotels of LA to bring you the sleeper’s guide to La La Land.

Smart Traveller: Discover Bangkok’s best food, hotels under £100 in Perth and Goa’s highlights. Plus, why you should go to Utah, columns and checklists.

Author Series: Ramita Navai on Tehran.

Travel Talk: Ask the experts about your travel dilemmas.

Features: We send one of our contributing editors to Kenya for an endurance test like no other — the annual Safaricom Marathon, pushing runners across the undulating hills of the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

The magazine is also available in China, Spain, Russia, the Netherlands, Israel, Poland, Latin America, Armenia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Indonesia, Romania and South Africa.

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.
