MANDARIN ORIENTAL, BANGKOK The best hotels offer more than just a soft place to land—they unlock a destination and become as inextricably linked to a city as its monuments. The Mandarin Oriental (simply “the Oriental” to locals) has been just that kind of hotel since it opened in 1876—and it’s been a T+L favorite since the 1970s. Much has changed over the years, but the grand façade remains, as does the Authors’ Lounge, where luminaries like Graham Greene once held court. With help from head concierge Chaba Khampha, guests have entrée into canal-side spots that recall the Bangkok of old, as well as the galleries and ateliers of creatives who are carrying the city forward. mandarinoriental.com; doubles from $529. LE BRISTOL PARIS You’ll always have Paris—and Paris will always have Le Bristol, the…

food & wine

OAXACA, MEXICO A 1985 T+L feature on Oaxaca raved about Mercado Benito Juárez and Mercado 20 de Noviembre—still must-sees today. At the former, stop by Nieves Chonita for a sweet and spicy chili-mango bolis; at the latter, visit Fonda Sofí for tamales with mole. HONG KONG Chefs like May Chow of Happy Paradise (happyparadise.hk; entrées $23–$51) and Vicky Cheng of Vea (vea.hk; tasting menus from $217) have solidified Hong Kong’s reputation as one of the world’s finest food cities, but don’t overlook classics like the Luk Yu Tea House—as memorable now as it was when T+L first sang its praises in 1975. SOUTH AFRICA’S WINELANDS For a classic wine-country experience, sip standout Cabernet Sauvignon at Delaire Graff Estate (delaire.co.za) in Stellenbosch, then head to Swartland for elegant Chenin Blancs at Mullineux (mlfwines.com). Swing by a…

under a spell

GROWING UP IN Bogotá, I would visit Cartagena often, but I returned as an adult for the first time in 2018. My debut novel, Fruit of the Drunken Tree, is set in Colombia, and after the very last event of a six-month U.S. book tour, I called a car to take me to the airport. You’d have thought I’d want to sleep after eight hours of transit. But instead, after checking in to my hotel, I put on my bikini, winced through the hot sand, and walked into the warm Caribbean. There is no water like it: that roaring mass of cerulean, a color so deep and bright as to be nearly hallucinatory. Wading until I was chest-deep, I indulged in my favorite beach activity. I tipped back into the lull…

channel crossing

I SPENT MY SECOND undergraduate year in London. It was far from my college in Ohio, but administered by that school, staffed by familiar professors, and attended by students I knew. Adventure, but low stakes—telling evidence of a youth too governed by fear of risk. I am, to this day, predictable, cautious. For fall break, my friend J., my friend D., his ex-girlfriend S., and I booked a trip to the Netherlands. For only a few dollars, the four of us took a train through England and crossed the North Sea by ferry. I can’t recall how we got into Amsterdam, or where we stayed, but I can recall that we were eager, all of us, for what we imagined life should provide us. We smugly got high in what I’m…
