Osorno Volcano, Llanquihue Province – Chile

Released once a year, this information packed guide is compiled by LP editors, authors, and travel experts from around the world, who work together to highlight the very best destinations for travellers to visit in the year ahead. These include Top 10 Countries, Top 10 Cities, Top 10 Regions, and Top 10 Best Value.

While there are always a few surprises on the list, there are plenty of perennial favourites too such as South Africa and New Zealand, although I don’t think anyone was prepared to see the United Kingdom on the ‘best value’ list for 2018 – I guess that’s Brexit for you!
