Best in Travel launches Facebook app

Best in Travel, the digital magazine for luxury travel, has launched a new Facebook app. Viewable at http://apps.facebook.com/bestintravel, the app offers all the interactive features of the monthly magazine but tailor-made for the world’s biggest social networking site.

The new app adds another dimension to Best in Travel’s compelling multimedia mix, which already includes videos, virtual tours, along with links to further information on the website and sharing services such as YouTube and Twitter to bring the luxury travel experience alive.

Best in Travel has been created by the team behind World Travel Awards, an organization that has the task of scouring the globe in search of the ultimate in luxury travel.

The magazine blends unrivalled first-hand knowledge of five-star hospitality with leading-edge interactive technology to create a ground-breaking guide to the world’s most glamorous travel experiences.

Unlike competitors such as Conde Nast Traveller and Wanderlust, it isn’t available on newsstands to reflect the shift from print to web as a source of travel information.

Manon Han, Publisher, Best in Travel, says: “Our magazine is a completely new format in the market, and offers our readers the best travel experiences available on screen. Our opt-in readership has grown to 20,000 in just three months, and is testimony to how we are engaging with the luxury travel community.”

“This new app ensures that all of Best in Travel’s content and interactivity is available on the world’s most popular social networking site. We are also rolling out iPhone and iPad versions in our next issue.”

The June issue is a honeymoon special, and covers everything from classic beach destinations to more off-beat journeys of a lifetime. This month’s competition is a dream holiday for two to South Africa, staying at five-star boutique hotels and game reserves.
