Saddle Up for the July/Aug/Sep Issue of Vacations & Travel – Australia's Longest Running Travel Magazine

Vacations & Travel – Australia's Longest
Running Travel Magazine
The new issue of Vacations & Travel magazine is out now, and it is star spangled with a USA theme delivering five stories in what we call our 'Apple Pie' edition. Americans are the greatest cultural exporters since the Romans ruled the world. Over 1.25 million Australians cross the Pacific annually, staying longer and spending more than most, delighting hoteliers, retailers and service industries everywhere.

In this issue we fall in love with Chicago, discover the New York that hipsters know and love, tuck into some amazing food in New Orleans' French Quarter, check out the western snow scene at Jackson Hole and the slopes of Mammoth Mountain in California.

We also check out the snow on Hokkaido, Japan, and have a sneak peak at the ski resorts that will host the Winter Olympics in Korea.

With 252 pages of essential holiday ideas and information, our team of respected writers travel far and wide and we also update readers on the latest news in spas, hotels, cruising, travel books, restaurants, galleries and museums, street food, shopping, street markets, travel apps and ways to give back through travel in our global village.

This issue also covers the following stories:

- a round up of spectacular rail journeys from around the world
- a walk around beautiful Maria Island
- advice on how and where to get married in Bali
- the vast array of markets around Bangkok
