AFAR was created to inspire and guide those who travel the world seeking to connect with its people, experience their cultures, and understand their perspectives.
Where Travel Takes Us | Where the AFAR community comes together. We feature recommendations from AFAR.com, in addition to reader comments on stories from previous issues.
Our Picks | Afar presents new hotels, gadgets, books, events—and anything else that catches our eye.
Wander | Where to Go Next. AFAR’s street-level guide to unusual destinations, both on- and off the-beaten path. In every issue, Wander includes the “Wandering Chef” column, in which well-known American chefs recommend food experiences from a recent trip (typically includes restaurants, bars, and markets).
Spin the Globe | AFAR chooses a destination at random—by literally spinning a globe—and sends a writer on a spontaneous journey. He/she travels without an itinerary, and relays the adventure in a first-person dispatch.
Mix | A visual exploration of the world’s similarities and differences.
Curious Planet | Our distinctive infographics department that illustrates global issues through charts, maps and graphics.
