As the year draws to a close, Lonely Planet Magazine India’s got something that will truly make you look forward to the New Year.
Our BEST IN TRAVEL 2017 list is packed with destinations that are both exciting and exotic, from CANADA and COLOMBIA to PERU and MACEDONIA. We’re also shining the spotlight on a lesser-known Balkan gem – MONTENEGRO, as well as snowy CHAMONIX in FRANCE. You can also witness a JAPAN that’s low on colour and high on drama, and set your own pace in atmospheric BUDAPEST. If that’s not enough, we’ve also thrown in coastal NEW ENGLAND, which you can explore in the best way – a road trip!
Our Easy Trips section is a mixed bag of goodies, from culture-rich MADURAI in TAMIL NADU, and a nature-soaked camp in HASSAN, KARNATAKA, to a rustic farmstay in TINCHULEY, WEST BENGAL. There’s also a luxurious wildlife retreat in oft-ignored DUDHWA TIGER RESERVE in UTTAR PRADESH and a thali trail that lets you sample various cuisines in MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA.
PLUS: Culture in Venice, Italy; Wildlife in Karnataka; Museums in Washington DC, the USA
