As part of our aim to promote understanding of the world's peoples, places and environments, the Discovering Places series engages people with their travel destinations.
We hold three Discovering Places evenings each year focusing on areas of the world that are remote, have only recently become accessible or are rapidly changing. Each evening features a panel of experts on the destination who talk about their experiences and answer questions from the audience. Exhibitor stands provide further information, travel ideas and inspiration.
Previous destinations include Myanmar (Burma), Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Rwanda, Madagascar, Belize, Colombia, Libya, West Bengal and Sikkim, Mongolia, Bhutan, Kamchatka, Mozambique, Guyana, Brunei, Patagonia, the Canadian Arctic, Jordan and Indonesia.
