1 Ricko Fernando PHOTOGRAPHER “Head for the Hills” Page 34 “I was born and raised in Bandung. After studying in Singapore and Beijing, I came back in late 2014 and started a clothing line, a coffee shop, and most recently a small film lab with analog photography supplies. I regularly shoot music fests and travel stories, but this is only my second assignment in Bandung. I should really explore my hometown more! I highly recommend roof bar Moxy Sky. It is spacious, and the view is beautiful with lots of natural light. The best people I met for this story were at Upstairs Bar. I talked to the staff for quite a while and they offered me free cocktails.” Instagram: @rickoriko. 2 Jonathan Evans WRITER “Head for the Hills” Page 34 “While watching a local rock band at a bar…

on our watch

Marriott, Hyatt, Four Seasons, The Peninsula, Royal Caribbean, Starbucks and all of Taiwan… 2018 has been the year of big names banning the plastic straw. While it may seem small, it’s pushed the wider travel industry to reduce their impact further, pledging to lessen water usage, support communities and more. But it’s not just up to corporations—here’s a reminder on how we, as travelers, can minimize our footprints. Be a pest Ask tour operators how their trips support the community. Ask for your hotel’s policy on recycling, waste water and use of renewable energy sources. Ask airlines how they source responsible catering options. They may not have a good answer yet, but the question itself may prompt action. Keep the cleaner out Despite hanging towels and opting for no sheet changes, we often find…

editor’s note

Getting away from it all is often both a goal and a curse when it comes to travel. Around Asia, the great outdoors always beckons yet this region is also the most densely populated in the world—don’t necessarily assume that only means China or India; also keep in mind Male in the Maldives or that former pocket of Portugal in southern China known as Macau. This month, we focus on the wide-open spaces where density is virtually an unknown concept. Where better to start that quest than in an archipelago nation that is further from any continent than any other: the Marquesas (“The Middle of Nowhere,” page 78). The isolated nature of these islands, not to mention their volcanic terrain draped in greenery and surrounded by deep-blue seas, are why any…

reasons to travel now

no. 1 It’s never too late to start your engines in Singapore. So you’re a fan of speed but were slow off the mark to get tickets to this month’s Formula 1 in Singapore? Not to worry, as there are now more ways than ever to enter the Marina Bay Night Circuit come September 14–16. One of the newest options is a single-day ticket for the Bay Grandstand—S$208 each on the Sunday—while anyone looking for a more cutting-edge feel can opt for Twenty3, a 3,000-square-meter facility on the final corner of the street circuit. The venue includes both al-fresco and air-conditioned dining spaces with free-flow drinks, along with indoor and outdoor viewing galleries for the race itself. The hitch is that a Sunday-only pass with this view will set you back…

phnom penh rises

MY FRIEND ASHLEY LIVED IN Phnom Penh’s Raffles Hotel Le Royal for two months 10 years ago, in the historic wing in the front of the building, which opened in 1929. His room had a clawfoot tub. He has fond memories of their tom yum soup, their French restaurant with classic silverservice dining and their old-school gin-and-tonics. Rosewood Phnom Penh—which is contemporary and crisp, while artistically and pragmatically incorporating local design elements, like wall panels that resemble louvered shutters—opened this year, and, from our highfloor room, we literally look down on the Raffles, as well as parkland Wat Phnom to its west and the fortified U.S. Embassy to its east. “I’ve never seen Phnom Penh from this perspective,” Ashley marvels. “It looks so clean.” I met Ashley the day he moved to…
