Join our Twitter #lpchat on Best in Travel 2019!

Every year we release our Best in Travel list – a collection of 40 different destinations that we recommend travelling to in the coming year. From the best places to make your money go further, to the most epic new openings and national celebrations, it’s all on one handy list, just waiting to be ticked off.

To celebrate the release of Best in Travel 2019, we’ll be holding a Twitter chat focused on and inspired by the destinations on the list, which are yet to be revealed. Whether you’ve visited them all, just a few or none at all, we want to hear your opinions, anecdotes and travel tales! Bring your best ones, and meet us on Twitter at 16:30 BST/ 8:30 PDT, Wednesday 24 October – see you there!

The best tweeter will win themselves a copy of the Best in Travel 2019 book.
