#LPCHAT (4)

Do you like to stay connected while travelling? Or are you in favour of leaving it all behind? Whether it’s a GPS gadget that comes in handy when venturing off the beaten track, a translation app that helps you communicate with the locals or a portable wi-fi device that has you connected wherever you end up in the world, technology has more to offer travellers today than ever before.

So, to celebrate the launch of our new Guides app, our first Twitter chat of 2016 will be all about how you use technology on your travels.

Whether you’re a gadget guru or prefer to head for the signal-free hills, join us on Twitter for #LPChat as we talk about all things travel tech related on Thursday 4 February 2016  from 4:30 pm GMT / 8:30am PST. Our favourite tweeter will win a copy of Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel List!
