MONOCLE’s Travel Top 50 2017/18 Announced - From London hot spots to aviation's high-fliers


From cocktails in London to breakfast in Tokyo and the airline with the most handsome cabin crew, the MONOCLE Travel Top 50 is a must-have guide to aviation's high-fliers, rail carriages with class, masterful hoteliers and service stars worth knowing the world over.

Each year Monocle’s itinerant editors chronicle their favourite fifty finds from the fast-moving world of travel: from the finest hotels to the best on-board service, unflappable hoteliers and best-left-alone airports. Our 2017/2018 fifty hones its view on the high-watermarks of hospitality from a modernist hotel in Portugal to an Antipodean airline lounge, the architects we’d hire for a hotel fix-up to Tokyo’s best-stocked mini-bar.
— Josh Fehnert, Editor of the Travel Top 50
