The Jan/Feb issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. In the cover story this month, we reveal the annual Best of the World list, rounding up 35 must-see destinations for the next year. Framed by five categories — Nature, Adventure, Culture, Sustainability and Family — selections on the 2022 list honour national parks and wildlife, outdoor activities and experience, green travel and destinations, and multigenerational destinations and journeys. From the ‘next great safari destination’ of Caprivi in Namibia to the ancient tea mountains and traditions of Yunnan, China, this year’s list is a reminder that there’s much out there to inspire us.

In this issue we also announce the winners of the Reader Awards 2021 — celebrating the places, experiences, accommodation, tour operators, authors and personalities that readers voted for in their thousands over the summer.
