Coming Up: Best of the World Twitter Chat

Join @NatGeoTravel on Twitter when we discuss our annual Best of the World list—and talk travel, of course!

Every year our editors compile a list of the best places in the world to visit. This year we are excited to present 21 of the must-see locations of 2017. Each falls into one of three categories: cities, nature, or culture.

Join National Geographic Traveler magazine’s Editor in Chief George Stone to talk about next year’s travel-inspiring destinations. You can participate in the conversation at 2 p.m. ET on Friday, November 18, by using #BestTrips2017. Share your favorite memories, bucket-list destinations, or photos of your travels to our must-see locations.
