About Us

Who are we? A bunch of travel addicts who love to explore the world and tell everyone about what we've discovered. So, our mission is to help other passionate travelers take better trips. We've created original travel guides to nearly 200 destinations: These guides list our favorite places—not everything or everywhere, just the hotels, restaurants, activities, shopping, and nightlife that we recommend most. The guides are written exclusively for us and kept up-to-date by a network of seasoned writers and correspondents—then verified in-house—so we know that the information is accurate, current, and dependable.

But if you're like us, you're also stuck at your desk more often than you'd like. So we've included thousands of fabulous travel photos and fun, informative videos that let you tour the world right from your computer. And in the Interests + Ideas section, we've published slideshow features that will inspire your next trip, no matter what kind of traveler you are.

Planning the perfect vacation requires work, so we've packed our Tools + Resources area with useful things like a currency converter, weather forecasts, maps, and more. Our Destination Finder will help you pinpoint the ideal spot for your next trip: Just enter what you like to do and—if you have a preference—roughly when and where you want to go, and you’ll get a custom list of specific places to check out. is also the online home of Condé Nast Traveler magazine, so the site provides access to articles, blogs, contests, and more from the world's premier travel publication. In addition, you can browse the magazine's esteemed Travel Awards, including the annual Gold List and Hot List.

Want to personalize your experience on our site? In My, you can create a personal travel profile, upload your own vacation photos, and create Trip Plans, which make it easy to save and organize all the information you've found here for future reference.
