Nate Clark WRITER AND PHOTOGRAPHER “Khmer Connection” Page 26 “I’ve been to Cambodia seven times in the last 10 years,” says the journalist, based in Pai, Thailand. “The last trip was solo, on my motorbike. While looking for a place to tune up, I met a paraplegic man who’s turned his repair shop into a mechanic’s school for underprivileged youth. His selflessness humbled me.

As charming as communication via hand gestures can be, here is some of the new technology we’re excited about to get the conversation really flowing. IFLYTEK 2.0 SMART ELECTRONIC VOICE LANGUAGE TRANSLATOR This one is for Chinese travelers or visitors to the country; the device directly translates 51 languages into Mandarin, Cantonese and other Chinese dialects, and vice…

editor’s note

HAVE YOU EVER BOOKED into a hotel room and realized, almost immediately, that you do not want to leave? Even if travel is meant to remove us from our comfort zones, or surprise us in ways we never imagined, some guestrooms simply hit every button. The same holds true with other spaces. Instead of a hotel room, you might turn a city corner on a first-time visit or veer down a dirt path to an undiscovered beach, and the scene will steal away all your expectations. This month, features editor Eloise Basuki ventures around always-popular Vietnam to uncover a trio of such spots (“Three for the History Books,” page 76). In Quy Nhon, she falls under the spell of her villa, no doubt lured by a personal wine cellar and her…
