1.Chris Schalkx IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN AHANGAMA (P. 19) “I traveled to Sri Lanka with my toddler and my parents, who live on the other side of the globe. While the rickety train ride from Ella to Kandy took the cake in terms of scenery, it was the moments spent frolicking at the pool with my family that I’ll treasure the most. A visit to Ahangama is not complete without a sundowner at Driftwood (order the Cucumber Gimlet). On the beach in a little cove where stilt fishermen await their catch between the waves, the views are spectacular. Throughout the trip, I ordered hoppers for breakfast, lunch and dinner—and might’ve actually had a few as snacks, too. The little boho café Maria Bonita did a great version with poached egg, garlic-y mushrooms…

letter from the editor

THESE DAYS, EVERYONE SEEMS to be asking where it is you want to visit once the dark clouds part—as soon as renewed domestic travel, led in our region by Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia, cautiously gives way to international journeys. It’s a tempting question but an obvious one. Perhaps an even more aspirational query would be how we want to travel. What are we going to do differently and why? With the travel industry essentially having hit a reset button, now is the chance for all of us to become more discerning and, dare I say, idealistic. Overcrowded beaches: out. Packed beer bars: don’t even think about it. More mindful travel is a recurring theme throughout this Beaches + Islands issue. Think quiet eco-escapes and wellness experiences—an Asian specialty—and trips that give back…

old town, new inspiration

PROVING IT’S more than just a temple town, Siem Reap has lately blossomed into a happening creative hub, where both locals and expats contribute to a burgeoning arts scene. A number of independent art spaces have sprung up around town—here we round up some top spots for a DIY Siem Reap art tour. A good place to start is One Eleven Gallery (, which features both Khmer and international artists covering diverse topics in a wide variety of styles and mediums. The gallery’s position near Psar Chas, the “Old Market,” its late hours and a bar in the back make it the perfect place to get your bearings, soak up the riverside atmosphere and rub shoulders with Siem Reap’s artsiest locals and expats. One such local is prominent Belgian painter Christian Develter,…

stone-cold cool

WE SO DESPERATELY want to love Pattaya. It’s the closest and easiest beach destination from Bangkok, and sits on a chunk of coastline that sees some of the best sunsets in Central Thailand. But the city comes with baggage. Girly bars and dodgy back streets have brought a reputation that’s hard to scrub clean. It’s not all a bust, though; bypass the main drag for the golden beaches of Sattahip District, and you’ll find the ultra-modern, ultra-quiet pool villas of Mason Pattaya (; doubles from Bt26,000). Descriptors like “sleek,” “stylishly minimal,” and “luxurious” are not often applicable to Pattaya, but Mason, which opened in January, happily defies the city’s stereotypes. Its 35 concrete-cube villas were designed by Bangkok-based studio VaSLab in a neo-Brutalist style that boldly contrasts against the lush seaside…
