Places We Love: Expert Travel Picks for 2018⠀ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~⠀ ⠀ We asked 10 of our destination specialists what places and experiences they're most excited about sharing with travelers.⠀ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~⠀ ⠀ MADAGASCAR (1/10)⠀ "Madagascar has a huge WOW factor. The world's fourth-largest island, it's where Africa meets Asia meets the Galápagos, where 80 percent of the plant and animal species are found nowhere else on earth, and where cultures have collided and combined in palpable ways-the African, Asian, and European influences are still noticeable in the language, traditions, and delicious fusion cuisine. A new luxury eco-lodge has just opened, giving travelers a wonderfully comfortable way to explore the island's endemic critters, including 100-plus species of lemur, some 600 types of orchid, and the smallest known kind of chameleon. . . .
