Top Ten Twitter Accounts International Travelers Need to Follow

I find that one of the most important aspects of Twitter (and browsing the Internet as a whole) is to provide ideas and inspiration for future travel. These Tweeters do just that for me…amazing places, beautiful photos and always more additions to the old travel bucket list!

Be it at home in the UK or far aboard in the far reaches of the globe, the BBC Travel Twitter account shares remarkable pictures and stories from all over!

Lonely Planet guides have been trusted by travelers for years, and the tradition continues with their social media accounts.
