1 Eloise Basuki WRITER “Maldives Rising” Page 66 — “It’s great to see a resort go beyond superficial eco trends—InterContinental Maamunagau has really started out on the right foot to keep its natural environment healthy. Snorkeling around Ladies Island with their marine biologist, we learned about the reef’s resilience and how she intends to protect it. There is so much still to learn about how manta rays live, communicate and socialize. Guests can contribute to Manta Trust’s initiatives just by sharing photos of the mantas they see on their own snorkels and dives in the resort’s lagoon.” Instagram: @eloise_baz. 2 Ariel Estulin PHOTOGRAPHER “Plateaued” Page 76 — “Having traveled many times from my home in Toronto to the Nepali Himalayas, I wanted to experience authentic Tibetan Sherpa culture at its source. It’s been shown Tibetans crossed into Nepal some…

On the Menu The new system syncs better for locating special meals, to help ensure all passengers are eating at the same time. If you’re not fussed about finding that precious chilled Prosecco, that’s cool, we’ll take it. Buckle Up As for seatbelts, having direct access to information regarding who is and is not securely fastened is meant to speed up boarding and departures. Ditto for sensors that can track where overhead bin space is available. Future plans even include seat-position preferences and meal selection from your personal device before you head to the airport. In the Loo Yes, flight attendants will be able to monitor how long a passenger has been in the washroom, but the idea is to keep tabs on when soap or toilet paper need replacing. Cameras outside washrooms will also…

editor’s note

SHOULD SHE WANT TO SEE the real Tibet, our writer was told, she must visit Kham (“Plateaued,” page 76). The true sense of any destination—the backdrop and the experiences that define it—isn’t always apparent on first glance or visit. It comes alive in the words and, our theme this month, the photography that make up each story. But, as Rachna Sachasinh discovers, and as Ariel Estulin’s pictures underscore, Kham is the backdrop to a part of Asia that is controversial simply because it exists. China would like you to see its version of Tibet, yet through his images, Ariel offers up a better dose of reality—something that all great photography aims to do. Far from the Tibetan Plateau, photographer April Wong visited Tonga and Fiji earlier this year, focusing on the…

no. 1 dive lens-first into some of the region’s most culturally fascinating locales.

If you’ve ever fantasized about being a travel photographer, some intrepid new tours let you scratch the itch without having to quit your day job. And who better to show you the ropes than a couple of T+L contributors? Belgium native David van Driessche (davidvandriessche.com), who runs what he calls “classic” photo tours through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, over the last few years has developed the more adventurous Expeditions in Photography (expeditionsinphotography.com), eschewing obvious landmarks in search of the “unseen”—hidden Angkor ruins, Burmese headhunter villages and the like. Focusing on environmental portraiture, “where you show local people in their natural settings,” he says, David’s 2020 tours will set off for Burma’s Chin State to visit remote tattoo tribes (from US$1,750), and the Mergui Archipelago to document the nomadic Moken people (from…
