Lonely Planet’s travel experts have trekked the globe to hand-pick the best trends, destinations, journeys and experiences for the upcoming year. After fierce debate and hundreds of suggestions from their extended family of travel experts, authors, editors, bloggers and tweeters, these are the top 10 countries, cities and regions poised for greatness in 2014.
Each of the holidays on this website has been carefully researched and selected by two of the UK’s leading travel writers, David Wickers and Mark Hodson. The travel companies we recommend appear by invitation only.
The web is a great place to research and book holidays, but sometimes the sheer volume of choice can be overwhelming and confusing. There is too much information out there, and not enough hard-earned wisdom. That’s why 4 million people a year use our sites to research their holidays. We provide a unique selection of the world’s greatest travel experiences.
