singing the praises of the song of india

What makes The Song of India unique? It’s the only classic Indian restaurant in Southeast Asia that has been awarded a Michelin star for three consecutive years. The creative menus are designed to take guests on a journey through India, offering the opportunity to indulge in different dishes from all over the vibrant, multicultural country. Celebrating inspiration Chef Manjunath Mural’s dishes are the inspired by many things: he frequently draws ideas from meals he ate as a child, as well as traditional Indian recipes. But he tweaks them to give them a modern twist—something we find inspirational ourselves! Take the Journey We highly recommend the signature Journey Through India menu. Beyond being beautifully presented, it gives guests and their tastebuds a chance to perambulate across different regions such as Hyderabad, Lucknow and Punjab. Each dish…

1 Jonathan Evans WRITER “The Far Side” Page 32 “It is tempting to imagine how tourism on Bintan Island might have developed if the resorts enclave had never been built; many time-poor visitors never leave its boundaries. But I can’t imagine anyone not being captivated by Kawal, Penyengat, Trikora or Gurun Pasir Busung. Interestingly, the local people don’t resent the success of the resorts: they are a major employer and have helped to boost land prices. By far the best food on my trip was the Javanese chicken I had at Rica Rica restaurant at The Residence resort—a taste sensation that was served accompanied by eight types of sambal.” Instagram: @adventures_in_journeylism. 2 Lindy Alexander WRITER “Family Special” Page 44 “Multigenerational travel is on the rise. Children are a great icebreaker. Families are now more willing to venture to places…

Istanbul Airport—the world’s largest—is set to officially open this month with six runways, 115 gates, 250 airlines and an eventual capacity for 200 million passengers a year.

These sprawling, futuristic hubs are expected to help us fly faster and further. Here’s what to look out for.

Magic Mirror One of the high-tech features at Istanbul’s 55,000-square-meter duty-free retail area is a virtual fitting room that allows shoppers to personally preview make-up, clothing, watches and more without physically trying them on. Starfish The nickname given to Daxing, due to its six concourse arms that unfurl from the airport’s…

editor’s note

THESE DAYS, MANY OF US YEARN to get back to basics. Tented camps are travel’s answer to this quest, and our look at their growing number around Asia (“Under the Big Top,” page 68) uncovers some of the newest canvas homes where you should be spending your next break. As you’ll discover in reading these stories, a stay at any of these properties is a far cry from roughing it. A gin and tonic on arrival at Shinta Mani Wild, a handmade copper tub at Wild Coast Tented Lodge and even dimpled teak floors at Capella Ubud—you’re not going to gain any merit badges here. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Fittingly for this age where giving back has become a vacation goal, guests can venture out on anti-poaching patrols in the…
