They say a picture can tell a story worth a thousand words, which is why we're big on pictures. There's no better way – save seeing it for yourself – to understand a brilliant travel experience than seeing it through the medium of photography. We've spent this year uploading stunning Rough Guides imagery on our Instagram account, so here's a round up of the travel pictures our readers liked the most.
