Cover of September 2015 issue - National Geographic Traveller (UK)
  • Cover Story: We lift the lid on everyone’s favourite Asian destination this issue: Thailand — from its top 10 beaches to a trip to the wilds of the North.
  • Destinations: We journey to the ‘Green Line’, a UN Buffer Zone in Cyprus; work up a sweat as we encounter spiders and snakes on a challenging trek to Ciudad Perdida — the ‘Lost City’ hidden deep in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada mountains; and go in search of grizzlies in Alaska. Our picture story, meanwhile, captures the lush Eastern African nation of Rwanda.
