Which travel magazine to subscribe?

I may choose three travel magazines to subscribe at work. Target: To be updated in the travel industry, in particular high end.

My thoughts:
CN Traveller
Business Traveller

Do you agree?

I'm actually a Travel & Leisure guy. It doesn't involve our hobbies of airlines and points much, but I love destinations and seeing what city is best for what.

They usually have a lot of City vs City things on there. I usually get on http://www.city-data.com/forum/ to debate city vs city...

One good method is to look at the ads and see if they're actually products you do/would buy or use. In Departures (Amex Platinum members) you get $50K watches and Masaratis. In Afar you get ads for destinations and offbeat tours. In between you've got National Geographic Traveler, T&L, and Conde Nast. In my opinion the latter two are interchangeable. Afar and NGT are the most respected by travel writers---as in they have the best writing/writers who win a lot of awards each year.

I write for Global Traveler, so I won't plug that one

I too enjoy T&L. Also I read Food and Wine, which isn't a travel mag but has a ton of articles about foreign cities.

I like National Geographic Traveler.

I think a lot depends on your travel style. I've found T&L and the like to be more "fashion" travel or luxury travel. A high life I can't afford to live. I don't need to see the fanciest hotel in Paris and the most precious shops--it's not what I travel for. NG tends to focus more on sites/nature, which is what I prefer to travel for.

(Of course, some may like NG Adventure (or whatever it's called) because they like even more adventure travel than I).

I gave up magazines and read WEB sites such as this one for travel information. Better quality information on FT.

I'm a big fan of International Travel News


It's not a slick glossy, but has good travel info on many parts of the world.
