 These Are The Once-In-A-Lifetime Trips Everyone Should Take, According to National Geographic

If your mind is firmly focused on travel for 2019, chances are you've got a bunch of once-in-a-lifetime trips you'd love to go on... but how do you even begin prioritising when and where?

Well, that's where the experts come in. National Geographic has published its annual Best Trips issue, and the magazine's team has put together what they think are the best holiday spots for 2019 and beyond.

Whether you want a relaxing holiday on an idyllic beach or to try an experience you'd never get here in the UK, there's something to suit every traveller - and a bunch of unique ideas for those open to literally anywhere.

Luckily, the top spot is one that ticks most people's boxes. Mexico City, Mexico stole the limelight mainly for its excellent food (hello tacos), but the scenery and weather certainly help. Closely following the leader was one for the adventurers who wwant to explore the Peruvian Amazon and its abundant nature.
