Cover of Jul/Aug 2015 issue - National Geographic Traveller (UK)
  • Cover Story: We’re going all high-end this ‘luxury’ issue, and our cover story reveals the outrageously upscale experiences and ambitious wishlists of a bunch of travel experts and writers.
  • Destinations: We zip around the waters of the Maldives in search of manta rays and whale sharks; climb aboard a stately catamaran and explore the Belize Barrier Reef; and discover where the well-heeled hang out in Croatia. Our picture story, meanwhile, captures the hillside towns and glittering marinas of Majorca.
