Elation in the Falkland Islands. Bradt Travel Guides has included the South Atlantic British Overseas Territory, as well as Chilean Patagonia as one of several best places to visit in 2023.

Bradt Travel Guides is a publisher of travel guides founded in 1974 by Hilary Bradt and her husband George, who co-wrote the first Bradt Guide on a river barge on a tributary of the Amazon.

Since then Bradt has grown into a leading independent travel publisher, with growth particularly in the last decade. It has a reputation for tackling destinations overlooked by other guide book publishers. Furthermore, nearly two-thirds of the guides on the publisher's list have no direct competition in English from other travel publishers.

These include guides to parts of Asia, Latin America and Africa, which traditionally have not been widely covered by guidebook publishers, or do not have a long history of tourism.

“Every winter, we put our heads together to select our top trip picks for the year ahead. It’s a list that attracts a lot of attention, so the responsibility weighs heavily! But we think we’ve succeeded in compiling a diverse group of places to satisfy the most discerning of travelers in 2023,” points out the suggestion list of best place to visit this year.

When it comes to the Americas it includes the Falkland Islands, Chilean Patagonia, Costa Rica, Guyana and Sta Lucia in the Caribbean, with an outstanding “Enjoy the hospitality of the Falkland Islands”
