Lonely Planet Magazine India inspires travellers to sample different cultures first-hand, discover new people, and learn fascinating stories about every place.

There’s a lot to see around the world. Plan your next trip with our Journeys of Discovery issue!

You could travel to MADAGASCAR with our insightful itinerary to admire lemurs, gawk at giant baobabs and meet with the cheerful locals. Or you could celebrate a hundred years of FINLAND‘s independence with nine essential experiences in the Nordic nation. It’s also a good time to plan a trip to HAVANA, CUBA to get under the skin of the city and discover its true spirit. If you’d rather stay in the country, consider heading to GOA to put our insiders’ guide to the test. And if you’d rather not get out at all this month, you can still travel from your kitchen – cook up a storm with authentic recipes from across JAPAN.

If you’re looking for a short break, we’ve got options. Our Easy Trips section has quick breaks you can take right now. Treat yourself to carpets of green as far as the eye can see and endless cups of chai in VALPARAI, TAMIL NADU. Or, let your kids paint elephants and hang out with monkeys in JAIPUR, RAJASTHAN. You could also just veg out by the pool or go on walks in the rain in PHANSAD, MAHARASHTRA. If you’re looking for food that’s high on flavour and low on cost, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA is a good bet. And finally, put on your trekking shoes for encounters with incredible creepy crawlies at TAMBDI SURLA, GOA.

PLUS: Spend a leisurely weekend in CAMBRIDGE, THE UK, max out the monsoon in BANGALORE, KARNATAKA, and learn about Emirati heritage on an affordable trip to ABU DHABI, THE UAE – all as easy-to-print-fold-and-carry Mini Guides.
