“This is CNN... Travel”

At CNN Travel, we believe travel creates human connectedness, reminding us what we have in common, rather than our differences. We tell the local, authentic and human stories, informing our audience and inspiring them to GO THERE. Using every available digital story-telling tool, from articles to galleries, short-form digital video and animations, maps, audio, illustration, CNN Travel is the digital destination for the globally curious traveler, providing unrivaled, authoritative content presented with  visual sophistication and artistry.

CNN Travel is first and foremost a storytelling enterprise, not breaking news or roundups of cheap flights and mileage hacks. We delve deeper, reach higher to seek out the most original or compelling people, places and experiences to share with our audience.
