Look outside. The days are getting longer. Daffodils are poking their yellow heads up through the dirt. Cadbury Creme Eggs have come and gone from our lives. And all this can only mean one thing: spring is finally upon us.
We are celebrating the new season with some of our best spring-themed content. Bid farewell to winter’s hearty comfort food and choose lighter fare instead, with our selection of the world’s finest seafood restaurants. Spring is also the season for festivals, with Songkran (aka Thai New Year) a springtime favourite – you can find a chic place to stay with our run-down of Thailand’s greatest luxury design hotels. With the weather getting better, why not also discover some new places – we’ve added a guide on Moscow and copy for a hotel on the Algarve. And the days may be getting longer, but there’s still pitch black night skies to enjoy, so we have included a piece on stargazing.

At World Words, we’re often asked to write destination guides for our clients. No wonder – travel guide content is the ideal way for a travel brand to share its expertise, while also communicating its unique personality and tone of voice. It can also do wonders for a brand’s SEO, boosting its search engine rankings in relation to key destinations and services, and ultimately delivering more potential customers to its website. And when it comes to travel guide writing, there’s nobody with as much content experience and as much local destination expertise as World Words.
In early 2017, we were approached by online travel comparison company TravelSupermarket. They were looking for a series of 3,500- to 4,500-word travel guides on popular destinations across Europe and beyond, from short city breaks to long island escapes. With our team of writers based all around the world, World Words was able to offer the on-the-ground insight they wanted, so over the next few months we wrote 30 different guides for them.
We’ve included extracts and links for six of our fave TravelSupermarket guides below. Scroll down to read them…
When it comes to getting hitched, the general consensus seems to be that the wedding ceremony is the stressful thing to organise, and the honeymoon is the light relief.

That’s why our team here at World Words was drawn to this smart little infographic from Commins & Co. It offers an invaluable breakdown of some of the world’s most perenially popular honeymoon hotspots by category – so whether you’re looking for a budget break, an exotic escape or an adventure holiday, they offer several options.

As regular readers of our blog will know, the expert travel writers and editors at World Words like to get around. Nothing makes us happier than strapping on a backpack and heading out there to discover a new place, meet new people and gain new perspectives. Nothing, that is, except for writing about the experience for our clients!
The Our Travels blog series is the place where we can share some of our most recent trips directly. In the past, we have covered our most exciting discoveries in all four corners of the world, from the cute brown bear cubs of Alaska to the majestic vultures of India, the Mayan pyramids of Guatemala to the mountaintop temples of Japan.
This month, our editor-in-chief Joe takes us to a distant corner of Europe that is capturing the hearts of more and more people: Madeira. After visiting the Portuguese archipelago in early February, Joe picks his island highlights…

More than a month has passed since we the first part of our top winter travel content series… so here’s part two.
Last time, we only scratched the surface of winter travel content we’ve completed for our clients, so this time we are diving a little bit deeper. We’ll start with a piece we had published on Run in the Dark Edinburgh, a night-time jogging event in the Scottish capital. Meanwhile, for anybody needing last-minute ski holiday inspiration, we have pulled out features on Canada’s Mont-Tremblant and the Swiss mountain resort Zermatt. And, because we know that some of the more forward-thinking among you may already be planning your summer escape, we have also included a destination guide we produced last year on the Languedoc region in sun-drenched southern France.
Last but not least, for those wanting to improve their written travel content in 2016, we’ve also shared some of our top editing tips with Media Kitty. So what are you waiting for? Scroll on down to read a short excerpt from each.
